Problem/Project Guide:
Students are expected to read and understand materials related to voltage variation and control at distribution point
and factors that may affect the distribution voltage. Furthermore, students are also required to explore various
methods in maintaining acceptable voltage level in the distribution system.
The students have to accomplish their task within four weeks time. As a guide, students may follow the problemsolving time-line as given in table below.
(a) Problem-solving Time-line
Activities
Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 4
1. Understand/Identify/Brainstorming
2. Design/Mathematical Modeling
3. Experiments/Testing/Measurement
4. Demo/Report Writing
Assessment criteria is standardized for all laboratories and will generally be the same for all laboratories. So if you
want to know detail about the assessment criteria, please refer to PBL Forth-year Laboratory Assessment
document.
(b) Report Writing
Other then the general guide specified by the Laboratory Coordinator, your report for this laboratory must
also include






Experimental Procedures
Experimental Data
Photographs of the actual circuit construction
Circuit diagram
Photographs of your group members
General guide can be downloaded from http://mpbls.blog.fke.utm.my/report/
Part of the students’ assessment will include reporting of their activities each week in a log book.
(c) Questions That Can Help You Tackle The Problem
 What is the referred standard for voltage supply in Malaysia?
 Can you list down the nominal ratings of transmission and distribution voltage supply?
 Why voltage at load cannot be constant all the time?
 How can we raise or lower the distribution voltages to an acceptable (rated) level?
 To what extent the utility engineer can control the voltage variation in the system?
