|Short Description:||Elect'l Measurement & Analysis|
|Faculty or Section :||Faculty of Health, Engineering and Sciences|
|School or Department :||School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering|
|Student contribution band :||Band 2|
|ASCED code :||031301 - Electrical Engineering|
|Grading basis :||Graded|
Examiner: Gordon Hampson
Pre-requisite: (ENG1500 or MAT1500 or ENM1500 or ENM1600) and ELE1801 or Students must be enrolled in the following Program: GCEN
In electrical, electronic and instrumentation industries, engineering professionals perform tests and measurements for quality assurance and performance evaluation to comply with Australian Standards. They need to acquire basic knowledge and skills in electrical analogue measurement techniques and to become familiar with Australian Standards. Topics in this course deal with theoretical aspects of using analogue measuring instruments and test equipment, and analytical techniques for performance evaluation of components, devices and circuits.
The course objectives define the student learning outcomes for a course. On completion of this course, students should be able to:
- describe common measuring instruments, devices and circuits, and their application to electrical testing;
- identify and classify error sources, and explain how their effects can be minimised in particular measurement situations;
- analyse single- and three-phase circuits to determine voltage and current values, by means of complexors, matrices and phasor diagrams;
- analyse test measurements and circuit performance mathematically in both time and frequency domains, with the aid of network theorems, response curves and locus diagrams;
- specify details of instrumentation and devices intended for a particular application;
- evaluate the results of tests and measurements taken from circuitry constructed by the student; and
- demonstrate, through technical report writing, competency in mathematical and graphical analysis of data.

Important assessment information
It is the students' responsibility to attend and participate appropriately in all activities (such as lectures, tutorials, laboratories and practical work) scheduled for them, and to study all material provided to them or required to be accessed by them to maximise their chance of meeting the objectives of the course and to be informed of course-related activities and administration
Requirements for students to complete each assessment item satisfactorily:
To satisfactorily complete an assessment item a student must achieve at least 50% of the marks or a grade of at least C-. Students do not have to satisfactorily complete each assessment item to be awarded a passing grade in this course. Refer to Statement 4 below for the requirements to receive a passing grade in this course.
Penalties for late submission of required work:
Students should refer to the Assessment Procedure http://policy.usq.edu.au/documents.php?id=14749PL (point 4.2.4)
Requirements for student to be awarded a passing grade in the course:
To be assured of receiving a passing grade a student must obtain at least 50% of the total weighted marks available for the course (i.e. the Primary Hurdle), and have satisfied the Secondary Hurdle (Supervised), i.e. the end of semester examination by achieving at least 40% of the weighted marks available for that assessment item.
Supplementary assessment may be offered where a student has undertaken all of the required summative assessment items and has passed the Primary Hurdle but failed to satisfy the Secondary Hurdle (Supervised), or has satisfied the Secondary Hurdle (Supervised) but failed to achieve a passing Final Grade by 5% or less of the total weighted Marks.
To be awarded a passing grade for a supplementary assessment item (if applicable), a student must achieve at least 50% of the available marks for the supplementary assessment item as per the Assessment Procedure http://policy.usq.edu.au/documents/14749PL (point 4.4.2).
Method used to combine assessment results to attain final grade:
The final grades for students will be assigned on the basis of the weighted aggregate of the marks (or grades) obtained for each of the summative assessment items in the course.
In a Closed Examination, candidates are allowed to bring only writing and drawing instruments into the examination. For the two-hour closed examination in this course, calculators are not permitted. Students are required to supply their own drawing instruments, including a cheap protractor.
Examination period when Deferred/Supplementary examinations will be held:
Any Deferred or Supplementary examinations for this course will be held during the next examination period.
University Student Policies:
Students should read the USQ policies: Definitions, Assessment and Student Academic Misconduct to avoid actions which might contravene University policies and practices. These policies can be found at http://policy.usq.edu.au.
Students must familiarise themselves with the USQ Assessment Procedures (http://policy.usq.edu.au/documents.php?id=14749PL).
IEEE is the referencing system required in this course. Students should use IEEE style in their assignments to format details of the information sources they have cited in their work. For further information on this referencing style, refer to the below website:
Students will require regular access to e-mail and internet access to UConnect for this course.
Students will require access to computer facilities to complete assignment work.
Students will require access to a printer to print modest quantities of material that may be provided via the StudyDesk
