Electrical and Electronic Engineering

This course gives an introduction to the basic theory, construction, design, operation and use of electrical machines and how electrical machines fit into the larger context of power systems. Emphasis is put on understanding the basic concepts of electromagnetic laws governing the working of electrical machines including motors, generators and transformers. Practical analytical models for most types of electrical machines commonly used in industry will be developed, and the models will be used to analyse power requirements, power capability, efficiency, operating characteristics, control requirements, and electrical demands of these machines

Electrical and Electronic Engineering

A. Course Introduction Digital Electronics is a field of electronics that involves the study of digital signals and the engineering of devices that use or produce them. In contrast to analog electronics, where information is represented by a continuously varying voltage, digital signals are represented by two discrete voltages or logic levels.
B. Course Content Digital Electronics covers combinational and sequential logic circuits. Topics include number systems, Boolean algebra, Logic gates and families, Logic circuits, Minimisation of logic circuits, Sequential logic systems, Latches, flip-flops, Counters, shift registers, Memories, Medium Scale Integration (MSI) and Large-Scale Integration (LSI) circuits, Analogue to Digital (AD) and Digital to Analogue (DA) conversion.
C. Course Objectives The objectives of this course are to: i. Acquire basic knowledge of digital logic levels; ii. Understand digital electronics circuits; and iii. Prepare students to analyse and design various digital electronic circuits.
D. Course Outcomes At the end of the course students will: i. Have a thorough understanding of the fundamental concepts and techniques used in digital electronics; ii. Understand and apply various number systems in digital design; iii. Acquire the skills to analyze and design various combinational and sequential circuits; and iv. Develop their skills in building and troubleshooting digital circuits.
E. Mode of Course Delivery Lectures (face-to-face and online using Virtual Learning Environment), tutorials, oral conversation.
