Do you want to be able to help design the next generation of renewable energy systems, clean cars and aircraft? Do you want to be able to invent the electrical systems for future factories and robots?

The Power Electronics, Machines and Drives (PEMD) is a 1 year degree course that provides its students with the knowledge to design, construct and analyse integrated networks of power electronic converters, electrical machines, actuators, energy storage devices, and control systems. As a result of recent technical advances, PEMD technology is becoming commonplace and can be found for example in more-electric aircraft and ships, electric vehicles, railway systems, renewable power generation, active management of power distribution systems, automation systems for factories and industrial processes. The adoption of PEMD technology is being driven by the need to increase energy efficiency, and controllability, whilst reducing system weight and maintenance costs.

This MSc course has been designed to equip electrical engineers with the knowledge and skills that are required to design modern PEMD systems, it includes the fundamentals of electrical machine and power electronics design, system integration, control, energy management and protection. The teaching team of eight academic staff belong to the Power Conversion Group and are all actively involved in researching new aspects of machines, drives, power electronics and electrical systems, particularly for applications in transport and sustainable electricity supply. The Group's research activities and industrial links inform the course content and enrich the student experience.

Aims

-To enable you to gain experience in the design and analysis of systems in electrical engineering, for example renewable energy, more-electric aircraft, vehicles, and next-generation electric power transmission
-To enable you to critically evaluate electrical machine and converter technology applied in manufacturing, power systems and transport industries
-To employ recent developments in these research areas and to prepare students who wish to continue on to research studies
-To develop your ability to integrate strands of machines, power electronics, drives and their control

The MSc course begins with an introduction to the fundamentals of converters, machines, actuators and relevant control systems. The course will give you a high level of exposure to system integration and is illustrated by a broad range of high-technology activities related to industrial and other systems.

The next five course units give specialist tuition on advanced topics including machine design, systems analysis, converter circuits and applications. In addition to lectures, tutorials, design exercises and enquiry-based learning, you will attend industrial seminars and practical laboratories which employ mainly industrial equipment. The course will include a `mechatronic' emphasis in examining how system blocks interact and ensuring that electrical and mechanical systems work together.

The summer is spent on this individual dissertation project, which is strongly supported by the Power Conversion Research Group's research base (including the Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre) and extensive industrial contacts. Cutting-edge research areas include versatile power and conversion systems for a variety of applications, including more-electric aircraft and ships, electric and hybrid vehicles, automation systems and autonomous/micro-grid power systems.

Career opportunities

Graduates of the course will have acquired in-depth education in modern design, broad exposure to the expanding range of applications, hands-on experience and integration into state-of-the-art systems. These comprise the special knowledge and skills needed for a professional career in energy conversion systems, an area in which engineers are in demand for key power electronic/drives/automation industries.

Industry's competitive edge relies on high-technology drives and in the integration of systems to provide superior overall performance. Applications include the `more electric aircraft', electric transport and high-reliability systems.

Our students have been employed by companies such as:
-ABB
-BAE Systems
-Cummings Turbo Technologies
-GE Energy
-National Instruments
-Rolls-Royce
-Siemens

Opportunities also exist for further study to doctoral level (PhD) in the Power Conversion Group's recently re-equipped and expanding research laboratories.

This two-year Erasmus Mundus masters course has been developed by 4 leading European universities in partnership with 16 major international companies/organisations to respond to key challenges facing the energy sector:

the development of new energy sources and understanding their implications on power systems
identifying methods to reduce CO2 emissions by increasing energy efficiency and using cleaner energy sources
One solution explored by this masters programme is the development of electric and hybrid electric vehicles which will help reduce CO2 emissions and lessen our reliance on fossil fuels. This innovative programme also looks at electrical power systems, energy efficiency and renewable energy, and has a strong focus on innovation and sustainability issues.

Students will investigate:

the management of generation technologies, particularly renewable energy sources
grid connection interfaces including electronic power converters
transport and distribution systems, including smart grids and micro-grid concept
the impact of electrical transportation systems (EV/HEV) on the electrical network
power electronics applications for EV/HEV
