Year 2 (national level 5):
- Electrical Machines and Power Systems (20 credits)
Establish a critical understanding of the construction and operation of a variety of machines and equipment used in the generation, distribution, and consumption of electrical power. Apply formulae to calculate various parameters to the area of power generation. Learn to evaluate the economics of electrical power transmission.
- Measurement and Control (20 credits)
Explore some of the signal conditioning requirements and their design. Understand the performance of measurement instruments and use them in the relevant contexts. Apply your skills and design a measurement systems structure.
- Electronics Systems (20 credits)
Develop your understanding of the construction and operation of the main semiconductor devices and their circuits. Delve into the operation, applications, and performance of a range of amplifiers. Design and simulate the behaviour of combinational and sequential logic circuits.
- Power Plant Systems (20 credits)
Gain a foundational knowledge of transformer and substation structure and function. Interpret transformer vector notation and calculate transformer load sharing. Utilise the skills you’ve developed and configure a protection relay.
- Individual Project (40 credits)
Work independently and with your peers to demonstrate your awareness and understanding of engineering systems and equipment. Consider the legal, safety, environmental and social regulations within which engineering and industrial systems operate. Collate and present your analysis and findings in a final project.
