Learning Outcomes:
On successful completion of this module the learner should be able to
  1. Employ analysis techniques to examine & predict the behaviour of single and three phase systems.
  2. Calculate transformer parameters for single phase and three phase applications.
  3. Recognise the attributes of power transmission systems and interpret power flow and fault conditions.
  4. Demonstrate an ability to interpret power distribution systems from point of supply to final circuit application.
  5. Assimilate the principles of redundancy, back up systems, power factor and harmonics.
