TOTAL STUDENT WORKLOAD


Students are required to attend and participate in all the formal timetabled sessions for the
unit. Stud
ents are also expected to manage their directed learning and independent study
in support of the unit.


Where normal timetabled sessions do not take place, additional directed learning may be
provided, and/or students are expected to undertake additional
independent learning.





PREREQUISITES



None


UNIT DESCRIPTION

The unit will introduce students to basic electrical and electronic principles incorporating
resistance , inductance and capacitance with associated circuits.

The use of instruments to measur
e resistance, voltage and current. Analysis of DC and
AC circuits.

Introduction to digital electronics involving logic gates and logic circuit .


LEARNING OBJECTIVES


1.

Explain the basic concept of resistance , inductance and capacitance and how each
may
be used in DC and AC series circuits and parallel circuits.


2.

Explain the basic concept of digital electronics which includes logic gates and logic
circuits.


3.

Perform experiments on DC and AC circuits. Analyse results to produce suitable
conclusions.


4.

P
erform experiments on logic circuits. Analyse results to produce suitable
conclusions.


5.

Performs calculations with regards to instrumentation accuracy and measurement
errors.





AREAS OF STUDY


Basic Properties

Conductors, insulators, resistance, ca
pacitance, inductance.

Units, Symbols Colour code.


DC Circuits

Resistors in series and parallel Calculation of total resistance, branch currents and volt
drops.

Ohms law and Kirchhoffs laws covering resistances in series and parallel with no more
than
two voltage sources.

Charge and discharge of current in a CR and LR circuit.


AC Circuits

Alternating voltages and currents, sine waves, period, frequency and phase angle.

CR , LR, LCR, series and parallel circuits.

Capacitive Reactance, Inductive Reac
tance, Impedance, Resonance.

Calculations involving complex mathematical notation.


Logic

Logic gates , Logic circuits, Truth Tables, Boolean Algebra .


TEACHING

and LEARNING STRATEGY


The weekly lecture will be used to provide the theory of basic e
lectrical and electronic
principles to underpin the practical sessions and provide for the required tutorial work


The 2 hour Laboratory / tutorial session will be used as the main vehicle for dealing with
individual student questions and problems to supp
ort the lecture. The laboratory sessions
will help the student to assimilate and learn the principles being covered in the lecture .
