This unit covers the analysis of static and dynamic parameters of electrical equipment associated with plant and machinery. It encompasses working safely, applying extensive knowledge of equipment operation and construction and its application, gathering and analysing data, applying problem solving techniques, developing and documenting solutions and alternatives.

Unit details

Study level:
Vocational and further education (TAFE)
Unit code:


UEENEEE101A - Apply Occupational Health and Safety regulations, codes and practices in the workplace


Assessment tasks will be designed to reinforce and extend knowledge and skill competence within set and controlled parameters in accordance with each unit's learning outcomes and performance criteria requirements, including the setting of work based practical application tasks designed to provide evidence of competence outcomes, within periodic and scheduled timelines. Students will be expected to demonstrate the following required skills and knowledge: - units of mass, length, time and force and distinguish between vector and scalar quantities; - resultant and equilibrant of systems of coplanar concurrent and non-concurrent forces; - principles of movement; - reactions of structures using equations of equilibrium and including the moment effect of a couple; - laws of dry sliding friction applicable to horizontal and inclined planes; - reactions and internal forces acting on the members of a pin jointed framed structure subjected to point loads at the joint; - pin and support reactions for a non-complanar non-concurrent force system; - linear and angular equations of motion for constant accelerations; - principles of the conservation of energy; - mechanical advantage, velocity ratio and efficiency of machines; - acceleration experienced by connected bodies so there motions are dependent upon one another, and; - principle of conversion of moment related to elastic collisions and departure masses.
