Course Description

This course contains some of the underpinning knowledge of a program, which designed for a person to be able to undertake design, select, install, commission, maintain and carry out repairs on advanced electronic equipment and systems.
The Knowledge and skills addressed in this course include:
• Development of fundamental mathematical calculus and vector skills necessary to support studies in electronic engineering program.
Fundamental concepts of alternating current, gaining an understanding of how different components behave in an AC circuit and develop skills in working with or solving problems in series and parallel AC circuit.

Learning Outcomes



Details of Learning Activities

Participate in individual small research projects in designated areas of underpinning knowledge including:

• Calculations using derivative, integration and vector equation to solve mathematical problems.

• Determination of the phase relationship between two or more sinusoidal waveforms from a given diagram and measurement.

• Drawing of phasor diagrams that show the relationship between two or more AC values of voltage and/or current for a given circuit.

• Measure of the period, frequency, peak-to-peak and rms. value of a sinusoidal voltage waveform.

• Series and parallel AC circuits containing resistance, inductance and capacitance connected to a steady-state sinusoidal voltage source.

• Phasor diagrams to show the phase relationship between voltage and current in a pure resistance, a pure inductance and a pure capacitance. Perform measurement in practical activities to confirm the above calculation

Participate in individual and team problem solving scenarios/role plays/ case studies dealing with a range of practical exercises related to:

• use of computer software to numerically evaluate various equations

• Development of testing procedures to verify performance, diagnosis and debugging of faults in the program

• The concept of series and parallel resonance circuits.

• Determination of the secondary voltage of a transformer given the primary voltage and turns ratio

• Determination the primary current of a transformer given the secondary current and turns ratio

Participate in supervised workshop practice in simulated workplace environment, including:

• Application of simulation program to determine the electrical quantities for a given electrical circuits.

Overview of Assessment

This is a progressive assessment, the underpinning knowledge will be assessed on the completion of each course, but the competency itself will not be signed off until further courses related to the competency are completed and the student is deemed competent.
The students are required to undertake summative assessments as follows:
• Progressive Written Assessments
• Written Assignments
• Scheduled Practical Exercises
• Work Simulation Projects


Assessment Tasks

This is a progressive assessment, the underpinning knowledge will be assessed on the completion of each course, but the competency itself will not be signed off until both courses related to the competency are completed and the student is deemed competent. The students are required to undertake summative assessments as follows:· Progressive Written Assessments· Written Assignments· Scheduled Practical Exercises· Work Simulation Projects
