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
