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
Circuit Theory 1, Circuit Theory 2 and Calculus and Vector
This course is designed to assist the students in gaining the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for understanding the broad principles of operation of all of the elements which make up a modern power system.
This learning unit is one of a group of units designed to collectively meet underpinning skill & applied knowledge essential for developing the following Core Competency –
UTE NES 008A – Provide technical leadership in the workplace
Which is contained in the National Electrotechnology Training Package UTE99 http://www.anta.gov.au/tp
National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria
National Element Code & Title:
UTENES008A Provide technical leadership in the workplace
o 008.1 Demonstrate standards of performance
1.1 Work demonstrated follows OH&S policies and procedures with the work is appropriately sequenced in accordance with requirements
Details of Learning Activities
Students will participate face to face in
• Classroom tutorial activities to consolidate the following theory:
• The operation principle of Three phase and Single phase AC system
• Transformers construction and operation
• The concepts of Electrical Energy transmission
• LV distribution systems
• Practical activities to develop skill in using computer software to numerically evaluate various underground cable parameters and simulate single and three phase problems. Develop testing procedure to verify the performance, diagnosis and debug of faults in the program.
• Work simulation projects focus in technical leadership activities, which include: team building, identify team member’s work task, clear and concise dissemination of ideas and information, planning and organising work to meet quality standards, time-line, personnel requirements and contingencies. Demonstrate leadership characteristic, such as: conflict resolution and problem solving, ability to conduct and participate in meetings, keeping records and documenting tasks.
Project may be undertaken as part of a team or individual basis.
