Description of module content:

In this module, you will be introduced with the principals of transmission line parameters (Resistance, inductance and capacitance) calculations for different conductor configurations.
Then, these parameters will be used to model and analyse the performance of transmission lines with different lengths (short, medium and long). You will also learn the application of generalised network equations in modelling a transmission line.
Finally, the following concepts to analyse the performance of a transmission line will be introduced:
• Travelling Wave Propagation
• Tuned Transmission Lines
• Characteristic Impedance
• Surge Impedance Loading (SIL)
• Ferranti Effect
• Charging Current in Lines
• Line Load-ability
• Power Flow Through a Transmission Line

Learning Outcomes for module:

On completion of this module you will be able to:
LO1: analyse and determine transmission line parameters
LO2: model transmission lines using Generalised Network equation
LO3: assess the performance of short and medium transmission (Uniform) lines
LO4: understand and apply different methods to analyse long transmission (non-uniform) lines

Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & Teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
A participative approach involving students will be adopted in lectures, tutorials and case studies with students being encouraged to interact within groups and with the module leader.

Students will be encouraged to enhance their critical thinking and analysing skills through interactive tutorial sessions. These skills will be further strengthened through a mini project of a student's own choice on a relevant topic (LOs 1 to 4). The mini project will also be helpful in developing an appropriate level of research skills.

Embedding of employability/PDP/Scholarship Skills
The module helps the students in building up their confidence through feedback on a regular basis. Continued interaction with the lecturer and peers helps them improve their teaching and learning skills. These skills will help them with employment and future career developments.

Research / teaching linkages
The module leader is an active researcher and ensures that he is up-to-date with the latest developments in his subject area. This gives him the opportunity to share his knowledge with the students, where applicable and as appropriate to the module learning outcomes.
Supporting equality and diversity.
The style, pace of presentation and lecture notes are continually monitored and reviewed through feedback from students to ensure that they are suitable for all types of students, e.g. part-time, full-time, mature, overseas and those with special needs. Extra support is provided to all students, as and when necessary, by the module leader and through the drop-in support sessions offered by the School.

Formative Assessment:
The University is currently undertaking work to improve the quality of information provided on methods of assessment and feedback. Please refer to the section on Learning and Teaching Approaches above for further information about this module’s learning, teaching and assessment practices, including formative and summative approaches.

Summative Assessment:
Assessment will be by examination, lab report and class test. Class tutorials and a mini project provide the opportunity for formative feedback and assessment. In the mini project there could be any combination of the learning outcomes 1 - 4.
