Aims

 The aim of this module is to introduce you to the interdisciplinary nature of electrical engineering.
The module starts with semiconductor devices – the pn diode that is the basic structure for all other devices and will support understanding of concepts in Analysis and Design of Circuits. It will then look into the use of pn diodes as solar cells, an important part of the renewable energy system.
The PV cell directly links to the second topic in power that will look at energy distribution in the grid and the role of renewables in that system. It will also give a glimpse into power management approaches such as maximum power point tracking.
In the spring term, the module changes track and takes you from waves propagating in space and transmission lines through to waves as information carriers in the frequency domain and the need for modulation techniques to transport this information efficiently.
The objective is to give you a flavour of different aspects in engineering to help you choose between EEE and EIE stream in the 2nd year. It also helps you understand the interconnectivity of a wide variety of concepts that classically taught separately.
