Course Description

** School ranked No 1 in the UK in the latest Research Assessment Exercise ** Renewable energy and reduction of carbon emissions are top of the global agenda. This programme addresses the fundamentals of renewable energy and how solar, wind, wave and other such energy sources can be efficiently integrated into practical power systems. This is an advanced course in the area of electrical engineering applied to renewable energy systems. It is distinctive in that it provides a strong core of power electronic converters, machines and control backed up with modules on power generation and electronic conversion with renewable energy sources. The course offers a unique set of modules in the efficient generation and use of electricity from solar, wind and wave power. The integration of renewable generators into micro-grids, with stability analysis and active power management, is also covered. The design of power electronics is covered in depth, including conventional and emerging converter topologies and semiconductor power devices. Students undertake substantial elements of practical work giving them confidence with hardware implementations using electric drives, microcontroller control and electronic conversion circuits. Project work is highly rewarding and conducted in a research-led environment, with selected students having the opportunity to carry out an industrial placement for their project. Sample taught modules include: Advanced Energy Systems, Climate Change: Impacts and Adaptation, Climate Change Mitigation, Climate Change: Physical Science Basis, Control Systems Design, Electric Drives, Electric Power Generation by Renewable Sources, Embedded Systems Design, Grid-Connected Microgeneration Systems, Main Project, Micro-grid Laboratory, Mini Projects and Laboratory, Pilot Study, Power Electronics and Drives, Sustainable Energy Processes. This course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET)
