This is a 3 credit compulsory course for all students in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. This course provides all the knowledge required to analyse an industrial power network from determination of the design ratings of equipment to the setting of protection relays. Human safety issues, in the handling of electrical equipment, are emphasised in all the topics covered. Topics delivered in the course are all linked as all topics depend on theory delivered in the previous topics. All topics are done by first delivering the required theory and then the application of the theory to a typical industrial design problem. This course is divided into 34 lecture and 5 tutorial sessions, each of one hour duration. Evaluation is done through 4 investigative laboratory experiments, a maximum of 5 take-home assignments, a midterm exam and a final exam.
