Business, Engineering and Technology
On-campus block of classes
The module covers the basics of conduction and breakdown processes in gases, liquids and solids, the generation of HV test voltages (and high testing currents), HV measurement techniques, insulation assessment and design considerations for HV equipment. It applies numerical field simulation methods.
On completion of the module, students will be expected to be able to:
|1||Explain conduction and breakdown processes in gases, liquids and solids|
|2||Describe the generation of high voltage test signals|
|3||HV measurement techniques.|
|4||Apply insulation assessment methods|
|5||Apply numerical field simulation methods|
Coursework assessment: 30%
Examination: 70 %
The module prepares the student for real-world application of electrical power to rotating machines. There will be a combination of lectures that include interactive elements, tutorials, laboratory practicals and Moodle, for sharing learning aids, to help students test their own knowledge through informal quizzes, and to administer short formal tests. All outcomes will be assessed by means of tutorial work, assignment, class tests and final examination.
