Hours & Credits
First principles introduction to electromagnetic fields & their applications in electrical machines. Physical models of semiconductor devices. Common electronic circuits using discrete semiconductor devices. Theoretical investigations, substantial case studies & laboratory experiments.
ELEC2003 introduces AC Circuit theories including real and reactive power concepts, electromagnetic fields and their applications in electrical machines (in particluar to transformer); some basic priciples of solar PV system; physical models of semiconductor devices; and common electronic circuits using discrete semiconductor devices.
ELEC2003 will provide some basic concepts of electrical engineering principles. The skills acquired in this course will be useful for advanced level studies in electronics, Electromechanics, control and power systems.
After successfully completing this course you should be able to:
1 Explain the nature and operation of inductors, capacitors and resistors (L,C,R)
2 Calculate and explain the response of LCR circuits to AC excitations & introduce real and reactive power concepts
3 Explain magnetic circuit concepts and apply to the analysis of magnetic circuits
4 Explain Transformer operation, model real transformers, and calculate efficiency and regulation
5 Explain the basic principles of Solar PV systems for converting solar energy to electricity
6 Identify the most common semiconductor devices; explain their properties, applications, and advantages & disadvantages
7 Analyse and synthesise basic electronic circuit "building blocks"
