ELEC-2060Electrical Principles & Applications 2

Building on the knowledge of electrical principles gained in Electrical Fundamentals 1, this advanced course equips students with a more specialized knowledge of electrical theory and concepts. In addition to problem-solving and performing electrical calculations, students will study concepts, principles and application in the production of electricity, and the design, characteristics and operation of DC generators and motors. They will also examine the relationship between terms in the formation of AC systems, as well as the characteristics, design, construction and operating principles of AC power—from generators and motors through to transformers and switchgear. Students will be provided with a thorough knowledge in the operation and components of pneumatic, electronic and digital control loops and will be expected to explain control modes and strategies. Safety is integral to the entire Power Engineering diploma program, and this course in particular stresses safety around electrical systems and equipment.
