Subject Description
ENGG104 provides an introduction to real-world electrical systems. The subject teaches fundamental electrical concepts: change, current, voltage, resistance, capacitance, inductance, energy and power. The subject introduces theorems to simplify AC and DC circuits through analysis and simulation. The subject also links the fundamental concepts to practical engineering applications such as motors and generators. The laboratory component covers measurements using electrical components and equipment, designing basic circuits, as well as report writing.


Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Apply the fundamental laws behind electric circuits and appreciate the importance of electric-electronic circuits in the modern world.
2. Design and analyse simple circuits for the processing of electrical signals.
3. Demonstrate practical experience in making and recording measurements using electrical components and equipment.
4. Demonstrate self directed learning related to solving problems in engineering.
5. Present experimental results, calculations, and analysis in a professional manner.
6. Meet the minimal knowledge required to safely perform measurements and understand basic electrical concepts.
