Unit Description and General Aims
On successful completion of this Unit, students are expected to be able to:
(e.g. assignment 2000 word essay ( specify topic ) examination ( specify length and format))
|When assessed||Weighting (% of total unit marks)||Learning Outcomes Assessed|
Type:Multi- choice test / Group work / Short answer
questions / Role Play / Self-Assessment / Presentation
Topic examples: Impact of lightning and switching overvoltages, new insulation materials, gas insulated
systems and transformers
|After Topic 5||20%||1,2|
Type:Report / Research / Paper / Case Study/ Site Visit/ Problem analysis/ Project / Professional
[This will include a progress report; literature review,hypothesis, and methodology/ conclusions]
Word length: 1000
Topic examples: “Design of surge protection for a 110 kV substation against lightning and switching” and write an abstract on a topic related to “transient voltages and insulation coordination of a 500kV cable line”.
After Topic 8
[If a continuation of the midterm, this should complete the report by adding sections on: methodology,implementation /evaluation, verification/ validation,conclusion/ challenges and recommendations/ future work. If this is a new report, all headings from the midterm and the final reports must be included.]
Word length: 2000
Topic examples: "Design the earth grid of a substation " and write an abstract on a topic related to “transient overvoltages in wind farm resulted from the lightning”.
|After Topic 11||35%||1,2,3,5,8|
Type: Example: May be in the form of quizzes, class tests, practical assessments , remote labs, simulation software or case studies
Attendance / Tutorial Participation
Example: Presentation, discussion, group work, exercises, self-assessment/reflection, case study analysis, application.
