I hope you are all doing well, as you already know, the University decided to suspend teaching this week starting from today. Teaching should restart online from Monday 23 March. However, for this module it will not be possible to carry on with the practical work.
Based on this, the coursework will be modified as follows:
The software requires a licence please use the following one issued by the university:
Please take care of yourselves and thanks for taking any sensible and responsible measures to keep yourself safe.

These notes provide guidance on how to go about the Group Project. They provide an overview of the steps to take but you will need to think about the details. If you need more information at any time then please post a query on the general discussion forum for me and the rest of the class to respond to.
This is a reminder of the overview given in the lectures.
You will need to allow for the following specifications, in addition to those given in the manufacturer’s data sheets on Study Direct:
The low power AC source (plug-top supply) provides a maximum off-load output of 11.2 V RMS (NB the small motor which you are using will not load this down significantly).
The motor can be driven by voltages up to 12 V. You should aim to vary the voltage between 5 and 10 V.
STEP 2 (in pairs)
STEP 3 (in pairs)
NB a few of the components do not appear in the Multisim database. You will need to use your judgment, and our advice, to find near equivalents.
STEP 4 (in pairs/trios)
STEP 5 (as a group)
You will submit an individual report which describes your laboratory work during the Group Project. The majority of the report will cover the particular circuit which you and your partner worked on.
However, you must also present the circuit produced by the other half of your group and compare critically the performance of the two designs.
For details of the deadline and submission see the e-submission point in the left hand column of the Study Direct site homepage.
Word length – 3000 words (does not include equations, tables and figure captions).
The report must include the following pages and sections. Number the major sections and sub- sections.
Title page – showing the title of the report, your candidate number (not name) and word count. Summary – describing briefly, but clearly, the objectives of the project and the basic techniques involved; states the principal results and conclusions; omits all inessential detail; stands alone i.e. must make sense without reading any other part except the title; is on a single page.
List of contents – with page numbers.
Circuit design – including the design calculations.
Choice of components – explaining and justifying the selection of components used in your prototype.
Full system test – describing the performance tests performed on your prototype using the motor; a brief description of the other prototype; and a comparison of the performance of the two designs.
Evaluation of results – a critical evaluation of all of the test results, with reference to the system design requirements.
Conclusions – a brief summary of how far the objectives of the Group project have been achieved and why; considers what could be done in addition, or differently.
List of references – a numbered list of the sources of information used in the report, correctly formatted according to the Numerical referencing system and cross-referenced in the main text by number.
