Credits: 
15 (0.125 EFTS)
Compulsory: 
No
Aim: 
To enable students to understand three-phase power systems with an emphasis on distribution systems and building services.
Pre-requisites / Co-requisites: 
Students must be admitted to the Bachelor of Engineering Technology programme to enrol in this course. Pre-requisite: ENGGMG5016. Restriction: ENGGMG6017.
Topics include: 

? Neutral-earthing methods, insulated neutral, resistance earthed neutral, solidly earthed neutral for LV and MV distribution.
? Construction and operation of power cables, insulation, conductor material, formation of conductors, current capacity, capacitance, inductance, losses, and installation.
? Principles of electrical reticulation within buildings and outdoor installations and the intent and application of the Electricity Regulations and Electrical Codes of Practice.
? Cables for providing electrical reticulation for given building applications are identified and justified in accordance with industry practice based on load, temperature, and fault level and installation method.
? The heating load of a building for a given environmental condition.
? Causes of faults and their effects, limiting fault currents, fault magnitudes for both symmetrical and unsymmetrical faults.
? Parameters on a current interruption oscillogram.
..? Current making and breaking capacities of switchgear and fuses.
