Electrical Principles (ENGGMG5034)

Level: 
5
Credits: 
15 (0.125 EFTS)
Compulsory: 
Yes
Aim: 
To enable students to understand general electrical and power circuit theory principles and skills
Pre-requisites / Co-requisites: 
Students must be admitted to the Bachelor of Engineering Technology programme to enrol in this course. Restriction: ENGGMG5014.
Topics include: 

1. Fundamental principles of DC circuit theory under steady state and time varying conditions. (Ohms law, Kirchhoff's laws, resistors in series, parallel and series-parallel and voltage dividers).
2. Basic electromagnetism, magnetic circuit's induction and inductance. Faraday's and Lenz's laws.
3. Fundamental principles of AC circuit theory under steady state and time varying conditions.
4. Capacitor construction including current and voltage transients in RC circuits.
5. Inductive transients - self-induction, mutual induction.
6. Series and parallel resonant circuits.
7. Basic star and delta connected circuits.
8. Perform basic calculations on balanced loads for three wire star load and four wire star configuration with neutral Impedance.
