Aims and objectives

 From 2016 this unit will replace (EEE30003) and will be available to UG and PG students
 
This unit of study aims to introduce electrical safety standards, fundamentals of electrical safety, earthing systems and electrical insulation under high voltage. The protection measures of overvoltage, residual voltages and leak current in power systems is also provided. Furthermore, the application of electrical safety in special locations and installations is discussed.
 
Unit Learning Outcomes (ULO)
Students who successfully complete this Unit should be able to:

1. Apply fundamental concepts of electrical safety to identify safety issues in power systems. (K1, K3, S1, S2)
2. Appreciate safe measures and protection devices in an environment that may contain potential electrical hazards. (K1, K3, S1)
3. Collect and analyse experimental data, interpret results, formulate conclusions and generate laboratory reports .(K1, K2, S1, A2)
4. Use computer simulation tools to analyse electrical field strength in high voltage systems leading to the proper selection of insulation materials. (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2)
