This masters is multidisciplinary with a strong emphasis on Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. Electrical energy networks and the methods by which electrical energy is generated are changing. Generating resources are being connected to the distribution network rather than the transmission network. These distributed resources include renewables and conventional thermal plant. You will look in depth at the design, modelling, evaluation and operating requirements of smart girds. The masters is designed to give you an understanding of how the components in an energy or electricity network interact. With the increased contribution of renewable power, there’s a demand for highly-trained specialists with technical skills and knowledge in this area.

This programme is concerned with the concepts, applications, design, development and deployment of renewable generation and distributed electrical systems. It aims to enable students to acquire detailed knowledge and critical understanding of the core skills in renewable and distributed generation of electrical energy. Building on these, students will then develop and use a significant range of principal and specialist skills, techniques and practices in both renewable generation and distributed electrical energy systems, and apply this knowledge directly to complex applications.

Commercial properties consume significant amounts of energy on heating and depend on relatively simple control systems. More advanced Smart Heating controls are now available for residential homes but are less common in commercial properties. The aim of this project is the development of a new boiler control system for commercial properties, with the aim of reducing energy consumption, carbon footprint and ongoing running costs.

This project will involve research and development to understand the range of technologies currently available, model system behaviours and develop control algorithms to implement the outcomes of research. It will also aim to discover new possibilities resulting from the inter-connection of IoT technologies, develop these into a commercial product and explore new approaches for complex systems with a focus on AI and machine learning.

This project would suit applicants with an engineering degree and programming experience, or a computer science graduate with a scientific leaning.
