Co Requisite Comment



To develop the Mechanical and Marine Engineering students' understanding of electrical and electronic systems through structured lectures, tutorial exercises and laboratory experiments. The module will be assessed by examination and laboratory report.

Outline Of Syllabus

Digital electronics: Binary representation of information, binary arithmetic, Boolean algebra, logic gates, truth tables, combinational logic circuits, arithmetic circuits, Karnaugh maps, synchronous sequential logic circuits, D latch and D flip-flop, registers, design of finite-state machines.

Electrical Engineering: Principles of AC circuits. Basic polyphase arrangements. AC drives. Production of a rotating magnetic field. Characteristics, frequency, pole number and synchronous speed. Per-unit systems. Polyphase synchronous machine. Basic operation, steady-state operation, magnetic field interaction, equivalent circuit. Characteristics using equivalent circuit. Phasor diagram, calculations. Polyphase induction machines. Basic characteristics, steady-state operation, equivalent circuit. Per-unit slip. Reduction of equivalent circuit for output calculations. Calculation of behaviour using equivalent circuit. Starting characteristics, star-delta connections.

Learning Outcomes

Intended Knowledge Outcomes

To give the student an understanding of electrical and electronic systems which are applicable to their future engineering study and careers in Marine and Mechanical engineering.

The students acquire knowledge in following topics: Binary representation of a decimal number and binary arithmetic; Operation of logic gates; Operation of combinational logic circuits and minimisation of combinational logic functions; Operation of synchronous sequential logic circuits; Principles of AC circuits; Operation of AC drives; Characteristics of AC machines and drives.

Intended Skill Outcomes

Analysis and understanding of electrical and electronic systems

The students acquire skills to apply the knowledge of combinational and sequential logic to design basic arithmetic functions, simple combinational logic circuits and finite state machines. The students become familiar with the main characteristics of AC circuits, AC machines and drives, and acquire skills to simplify the complicated calculations.

Teaching Rationale And Relationship

The module is delivered by non-synchronous pre-recorded lecture materials, along with synchronous live revision/tutorial sessions and live practical demonstration. The lectures and tutorials are presented in a way to be relevant to mechanical and marine engineers and closely link in with the practical experiments.

Welcome to Newcastle University Module Catalogue

This is where you will be able to find all key information about modules on your programme of study. It will help you make an informed decision on the options available to you within your programme.

You may have some queries about the modules available to you. Your school office will be able to signpost you to someone who will support you with any queries.


The information contained within the Module Catalogue relates to the 2024 academic year.

In accordance with University Terms and Conditions, the University makes all reasonable efforts to deliver the modules as described.

Modules may be amended on an annual basis to take account of changing staff expertise, developments in the discipline, the requirements of external bodies and partners, and student feedback. Module information for the 2025/26 entry will be published here in early-April 2025. Queries about information in the Module Catalogue should in the first instance be addressed to your School Office.
