Design power system transmission, sub-transmission and zone substation civil and structural components

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x

Elements and Performance Criteria




Plan for and coordinate the design of transmission, sub-transmission and zone substation civil and structural components


OHS practices/procedures and environmental and sustainable energy procedures, which may influence the design of substations, are reviewed and determined.


Purpose of the design is established and expected outcomes of the work are confirmed with the appropriate personnel.


Established policies, procedures and specifications for the design are obtained or established with the appropriate personnel.


Equipment/tools and personal protective equipment are selected and coordinated based on specified requirements and established procedures


Work is prioritised and sequenced for the most efficient and effective outcome following consultation with others for completion within acceptable timeframes, to a quality standard and in accordance with established procedures


Risk control measures are identified, prioritised and evaluated against the work schedule


Relevant work permits are secured to coordinate the performance of work according to requirements and/or established procedures


Resources including personnel, equipment, tools and personal protective equipment required for the job are identified, scheduled and coordinated and confirmed in a safe and technical working order


Liaison and communication issues with other/authorised personnel, authorities, clients and land-owners are resolved and activities coordinated to carry out work


Site is prepared according to the work schedule and to minimise risk and damage to property, commerce, and individuals in accordance with established procedures


Personnel participating in the work, including plant operators and contractors, are fully briefed and respective responsibilities coordinated and authorised where applicable in accordance with established procedures


Carry out and coordinate the design of transmission, sub-transmission and zone substation civil and structural components


Circuit/systems modelling is used to evaluate alternative proposals as per established procedures.


OHS and sustainable energy principles, functionality and practices to avoid incidence and accidents and minimise waste are incorporated into the project in accordance with requirements and/or established procedures


System design decisions are made on the basis of safety and effective outcomes according to requirements and/or established procedures


Mathematical models of the design are used to analyse the effectiveness of the finished project as per requirements and established procedures


Technical advice is given regarding potential hazards, safety risks and control measures so that monitoring and preventative action can be undertaken and/or appropriate authorities consulted, where necessary, in accordance with requirements and established procedures


Essential knowledge and associated skills are applied to analyse specific data and compare it with compliance specifications to ensure completion of the project within an agreed timeframe according to requirements.


Solutions to non-routine problems are identified and actioned using acquired essential knowledge and associated skills according to requirements


Quality of work is monitored against personal performance agreement and/or established organisational and professional standards.


Complete and coordinate the design of transmission, sub-transmission and zone substation civil and structural components


Final inspections of the design are undertaken to ensure they comply with all requirements and include all specifications and documentations needed to complete the design brief.


Appropriate personnel are notified of completion and reports and/or completion documents are finalised.


Reports and/or completion documents are submitted to relevant personnel/organisations for approval and, where applicable, statutory or regulatory approval


Approved copies of design documents are issued and records are updated in accordance with established procedures.
