Regardless of the mode of delivery, represent a guide to the relative teaching time and student effort required to successfully achieve a particular competency/module. This may include not only scheduled classes or workplace visits but also the amount of effort required to undertake, evaluate and complete all assessment requirements, including any non-classroom activities.

Pre-requisites and Co-requisites

Granting competency in this unit shall be made only after
competency in the following unit has been confirmed:

UEENEEG002B Solve problems in single and three phase low
voltage circuit

Course Description

This competency standard unit covers the application of
computational processes to solving problems encountered in
Power engineering. It encompasses working safely, applying
problem solving techniques, using a range of mathematical

Overview of Assessment

Assessment in this competency includes quizzes, tests, assignments, projects and computer assisted learning.


Assessment Tasks

Assessment in this course comprises the following:

  • Self-assessment online quizzes supplement topics learned in class (no marks)  
  • Accumulative tutorial assignment includes attendance of and participation in tutorial class sessions. Solutions to tutorial exercises will be assessed twice: at the end of week 8 (Part A ), and at the end of week 16 (part B).  Accumulative tutorial assessment is worth 20% of the total mark.  
  • Mid-semester test (40%) covers topics 1 - 6. It will be conducted during class time in week 8.
  • Final examination (40%) covers topics 7 - 13. It will be conducted during weeks 17-18.
