Electric Power and Electronics for Agriculture and Industry. (3-3) Cr. 4. F. Prereq: TSM 210. Basic electricity. Electrical safety, wiring, 3 -phase service, controls, and motors for agricultural and industrial applica- tions. Planning building lighting and electrical systems. Electronics to sense, monitor, and control mechanical processes. Textbook: • Bern, C. J., Olson, D. O. 2002 Electricity for Agricultural Applications. Ames, IA: Iowa State Press. • Bern, C. J. 2006 TSM 363 Lab Manual 12/27/06 edition Course Works, (provided on BBL). Safety Emphasis: Students in ABE/TSM classes work with systems that, if misused, can be extremely hazardous . Therefore, developing an attitude of safety is crucial to all engineering and technology professionals. Instructors may take an array of actions when students fail to complete required safety training (for example, by coming late to class and missing a safety briefing) or to adhere to procedures. These includ e but are not limited to 1. only allowing the student to observe the lab; 2. only allowing the student to observe the lab, and deducting points from the associated lab report; 3. suspending the student from all lab activities until the student has successfully completed the required safety portion of the lab (this may mean attending another lab section where the student can arrive on time); 4. dismissing students – and particularly repeat violators of safety policy – from the course. Other Course Policies • Work teams are expected to function productively and professionally. • CELL PHONES ARE NOT TO BE USED DURING CLASS LECTURES . • Attendance is expected at each class. Students are limited to a total of 3 unexcused absences before the instructor will consider dropping a letter grade. For University sponsored excused absences, please inform instructor before missing class. NO FOOD, DRINKS, OR CHEWING TOBACCO IS ALLOWED AT ANY TIME IN CLASS OR LAB. Course Website: We are using a BBL (Blackboard Learn) website for TSM 363. Go to the ISU homepage, click Blackboard at the top (or go to ) and login. This BBL site will be used throughout the semester.

 practice problems. • Do the assignments on -time. • Make sure and wo rk out Technical Details Early! Academic Misconduct: The class will follow Iowa State University’s policy on academic dishonesty. Anyone suspected of academic dishonesty will be reported to the Dean of Students Office. Note that ISU identifies several forms of academic dishonesty including: A student uses or attempts to use unauthorized in- formation in the taking of an exam; submits as his or her own work, themes, reports, drawings, laboratory notes, computer programs, or other products prepared by another person; or knowingly assists another student in such acts or plagiarism. Students found guilty of academic dishonesty in this class face suspension, conduct probation, or reprimand. Computer Ethics: Please check the link at for information on the university’s computer ethics policy. You are expected to use the university computers responsibly and to communicate courteously with others in your class . Dead Week: For each Fall and Spring semester, the last full week of classes before final examinations is desi gnated as Dead Week. The intent of Dead Week is to establish a one -week period of substantial and predictable study time for undergraduate students. Dur- ing the Dead Week period, regular lectures are expected to continue, including the introduction of new c ontent, as deemed appropri- ate by the instructor. The restrictions established by this Dead Week policy are: • Due dates for mandatory graded submissions of any kind that fall within Dead Week must be listed on the syllabus provided at the start of the course. • Mandatory final examinations may not be given during the Dead Week period except for laboratory courses or courses that meet weekly and for which there is no contact during the normal final examination week. Disability Accommodation Policy: Iowa State University is committed to assuring that all educational activities are free from discrim- ination and harassment based on disability status. All students requesting accommodations are required to meet with staff in Student Disability Resources (SDR) to establish eligibility. A Student Academic Accommodation Request (SAAR) form will be provided to eligi- ble students. The provision of reasonable accommodations in this course will be arranged after timely delivery of the SAAR fo rm to the instructor. Students are encouraged to deliver completed SAAR forms as early in the semester as possible. SDR, a unit in the Dean of Students Office, is located in room 1076, Student Services Building or online at Contact SDR by e-mail at or by phone at 515-294-7220 for additional information. Jenny Macken, 1330D Elings Hall (515.294.5196;, is the Disability Resource Liaison for the department of Agri- cultural and Biosystems Engineering. Please work with Jenny and John Haughery to address any special needs or special accommo- dations at the beginning of the semester. Harassment and Discrimination: Iowa State University strives to maintain our campus as a place of work and study for faculty, staff, and students that is free of all forms of prohibited discrimination and harassment based upon race, ethnicity, sex (including sexual assault), pregnancy, color, religion, national origin, physical or mental disability, age, marital status, sexual orientation , gender identity, genetic information, or status as a U.S. veteran. Any student who ha s concerns about such behavior should contact the course in- structor John Haughery (, 717.587.6506), the Associate Chair of Teaching (Professor Raj Raman,, 515.294.0465), Student Assistance at 515.294.1020 or email, or the Office of Equal Op- portunity and Compliance at 515.294.7612. Specifically, it is my expectation that students treat their peers, TAs, and instructor(s) with respect and professionalism. Stu- dents engaging in any negative behaviors in this class or in ABE facilities are subject to appropriate disciplinary action by the course instructor, and will also have their cases referred to the Dean of Students Office. Religious Accommodation: If an academic requirement of this class conflicts with your religious practices and/or observances, you may request reasonable accommodations. Your request must be in writing, and John Haughery or supervisor will review the request. You or John Haughery may also seek assistance from the Dean of Students Office or the Office of Equal Opportunity and Compliance . Contact Information: If you are experiencing, or have experienced, a problem with any of the above issues, email academicis-
