This MSc is designed to provide instruction and training in the most recent developments in equipment and systems used to interface and control renewable and sustainable energy systems. The course provides essential knowledge both for electrical engineers wanting to work within the renewable energy systems industry, and for engineers planning a research career in the field.
Students will develop: advanced and comprehensive knowledge of the specialist engineering skills required by an engineer working in this field the ability to plan and undertake an individual project interpersonal, communication and professional skills the ability to communicate ideas effectively in written reports the technical knowledge and skills to equip them for a leading career in engineering for renewable and sustainable energy technologies, electrical engineering and power engineering the ability to design, analyse and evaluate hardware and software aspects of renewable and energy efficient power systems decision making powers in relation to the specification and solution of power electronics, power systems and electrical engineering problems for appropriate renewable and sustainable energy technologies
Following the successful completion of the taught modules, an individual research project is undertaken during the summer term.
Previous research projects on this course have included: the design of a DC-DC voltage convertor with maximum power tracking for a photovoltaic module electrical modelling of a PEM fuel Cell microprocessor based control of a wind turbine generator optimisation of the operation of a renewable energy micro grid
