We are aiming for an incremental return to campus in accordance with guidelines provided by NSW Health and the Australian Government. Until this time, learning activities and assessments will be planned and scheduled for online delivery where possible, and unit-specific details about face-to-face teaching will be provided on Canvas as the opportunities for face-to-face learning become clear.

We are currently working to resolve an issue where some unit outline links are unavailable. If the link to your unit outline does not appear below, please use the link in your Canvas site. If no link is available on your Canvas site, please contact your unit coordinator.

Unit of study_

ELEC3206: Electrical Energy Conversion Systems

This unit of study aims to give students a good understanding of electrical energy conversion techniques and equipment. Students who successfully complete this unit will: Have a broad view of electrical energy conversion systems including transformers, DC machines, induction machines and synchronous machines; Be able to analyse and solve problems in transformers and electric machines; Have gained confidence in their ability to undertake more advanced study in the power area. The following specific topics are covered: magnetic circuits, inductance, sinusoidal excitation, hysteresis and eddy current loss, permanent magnets, electromechanical energy conversion, singly-excited and doubly-excited systems, transformers, single-phase, equivalent circuit parameters, three-phase transformers, autotransformers, DC machines, separate excitation, shunt excitation, series excitation, and compound excitation, efficiency, armature reaction, induction machines, revolving field, equivalent circuit, squirrel cage machines, measurements of the parameters, DC resistance test, no-load test, blocked-rotor test, synchronous machines, field relationships, power-angle relationships, salient pole machines.

Following concepts are assumed knowledge for this unit of study: familiarity with circuit theory, electronic devices, ac power, capacitors and inductors, and electric circuits such as three-phase circuits and circuits with switches, the use of basic laboratory equipment such as oscilloscope and power supply.

At the completion of this unit, you should be able to:

  • LO1. instigate inquiry for knowledge development, drawing on varied information sources and media formats and synthesise the information most pertinent to the design of AC or DC machines for particular application
  • LO2. work in a team and promote creative team interaction to encourage contribution from all members so as to deliver specific engineering projects and assignments
  • LO3. analyse, design and control an AC or DC machine for a particular application
  • LO4. perform calculations on machines using power quality concept and electrical circuit theories to the extent of the information presented
  • LO5. explain the theory of machinery.

Unit outlines

Unit outlines will be available 2 weeks before the first day of teaching for 1000-level and 5000-level units, or one week before the first day of teaching for all other units.

There are no unit outlines available online for previous years.
