Content

The unit introduces students to the fundamentals of electrical systems. The unit begins by introducing the concepts of electric charge, electric fields and electric potential. Capacitance, resistance, inductance and EMF are then covered. This is followed by a study of alternating current and resistor-capacitor, resistor-inductor, resistor-inductor-capacitor circuits. The unit then has a focus on circuit analysis using voltage dividers, KCL and KVL, voltage and current sources, Thevenin’s theorm. Semiconductor devices are then introduced and the characteristics and application of diodes, rectifiers, bipolar-junction transistors and op-amps are considered.

Assessment

Examination 50%, practical reports 25%, problem-solving assignment 25%.  To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit, students must achieve an overall mark of at least 40% in the examination and compulsory attendance is required by all students to unit-specific activities at Waurn Ponds (Geelong). These unit-specific activities may be undertaken either at scheduled sessions on multiple days during the trimester or during a single day of unit-specific activities scheduled during Week 9.
