Overview

Electrical engineering is founded on the use of electrical and electronic technology to achieve most of our daily needs. To understand how electricity is used to achieve these needs, Electrical Technology aims to develop a working knowledge of electrical components, machines and power supply systems. In particular, an understanding of fundamental electrical principles and the analysis of DC and AC circuits, transformers, motors, generators and three-phase systems, are the focus of this course.

In this course students will study and apply the fundamental theories and principles which underpin electrical engineering. In addition, students will develop and practice the application of these principles and theories to understand and analyse more complex electrical systems and equipment such as electric motors and generators, transformers, three-phase supply systems and electrical circuit design.
