Description

Electrical Installation Technology 202

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

 Describe construction and characteristics of DC motors

2.

Choose DC motors to carry out particular tasks

3.

Describe the national electrical transmission and distributions systems and networks.

4.

Calculate line and phase currents and voltages in various configurations.

5.

Wire and configure variable speed drives for single phase and 3 phase motors.

6.

Construct, test and troubleshoot single phase and 3 phase motor control circuits using PLC control.

Teaching and Learning Strategies

This module is based in the Electrical Installation Workshop where students will complete, test and commission several electrical installation exercises. Their exercises will be connected by the lecturer and the student will have to trouble shoot any faults, or if none are present the lecturer will introduce some.

Theory will be introduced with each exercise. This will involve a blend of demonstration, questioning, discussion of the relevant topics and instruction involving whiteboard work, multimedia clips and paper notes.

This module involves a large element of skill development alongside the theory so attendance is very important

Module Assessment Strategies

Students will be assessed on each exercise completed. They will also keep a folder of schematic diagrams, safety information, and in class quizzes which will be graded at the end of he semester.

There will also be a final exam.

Repeat Assessments

If the student fails the workshop/continuous part they will be required to repeat attend.

Required & Recommended Book List

Required Reading
2009-02-27 Electrical Craft Principles, Vol. 2, 5th Edition IET
ISBN 9780863419331 ISBN-13 086341933X

The two volumes of Whitfield's Electrical Craft Principles have been substantially revised and updated in 2008, reflecting changes in practice and legislation (e.g. BS 7671/Requirements for Electrical Installations). Volume 2 in particular has new material to accompany course changes. The volumes are presented in a new format, are highly illustrated and contain full problems and solutions.
