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
• Electronic Concepts 1
Students will develop a well-balanced coverage of electronic modeling concepts to analyse the behaviour of the electronic circuit with emphasis on BJT and FET amplifiers. Students will develop practical skills in electrical measurement, testing and problem solving related to electronic circuits in practical activities and work simulation projects.
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 504 bA – Diagnose faults in advanced systems and associated apparatus- Electrical
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:
UTENES504BA Diagnose & rectify faults in advanced systems & apparatus
o 008.1 Demonstrate standards of performance
* Diagnosis of faults is planned and prepared to ensure OH&S policies and procedures are followed and the work is appropriately sequenced in accordance with requirements
Details of Learning Activities
Participate in individual small research projects in designated areas of underpinning knowledge including:
• The operation and application theory of BJT/ FET amplifiers in various circuit configurations, which may include calculations for various amplifier parameters but not limited to: voltage & current gain, input & output resistance and power.
Participate in individual and team problem solving scenarios/ case studies dealing with a range of practical exercises.
• Skills in selecting most appropriate amplifier based on application criteria; construction of amplifier circuits; test, measure and confirm the AC operating conditions of BJT and FET amplifiers in various configurations and with specified bias; stabilisation and feedback using oscilloscope and other currently available measuring instruments.
Participate in supervised workshop practice in simulated workplace environment, including:
• The design and construction of BJT/ FET amplifier circuits, development of testing procedure to verify the performance specification, diagnosis of faults in the systems and completion of commissioning process.
• The design, construction and commissioning of amplifier circuits with feedback, diagnosis of faults in the systems and repair the fault.
Specifications will be provided.
