TECH 2001 - Electrical Principles

North Terrace Campus - Semester 1 - 2021

This course covers the fundamental principles of analog and digital circuits and electronic devices. This knowledge is critical for students needing to work on or with electrical systems within larger engineering systems. The course seeks to develop foundational concepts and skills and complements the material with a series of application-oriented topics relevant to defence industries. Important topics covered include: the key electrical variables and the application of fundamental circuit laws and theorems to DC and AC circuits; power supply applications of diodes and switch-mode transistors; the operating principles of DC, induction and synchronous machines; analysis of simple operational amplifiers; Boolean logic and binary arithmetic; combinational and sequential circuits; and simple microcontroller programming.
