Course content

This course aims to provide a broad-based understanding of the subject and then a study of in-depth topics covering modern technology for Power Systems, Power Electronics and related subjects. It will prepare students for a career as a professional engineer working in research, design or industrial applications.

The modular structure of the MSc in Electrical Engineering offers students a great deal of flexibility, allowing them to choose the
modules that most reflect their interests and feed into their research project. The modules cover the following subjects; power electronics, drives, power systems (including distributed generation and wind power), design of single and multi-variable control systems, motor and generator design, instrumentation and measurement. This course is suitable for graduates of related disciplines who wish to convert to electrical engineering.

Students will develop:
up-to-date knowledge of electrical engineering, including design and modelling techniques and applications
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 skills to equip them for a leading career in electrical engineering, especially in the areas of power electronics, power systems, electrical machines and control

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:
Modular converter topologies for power system applications
Predictive control for an uninterruptable power supply
Power systems stability enhancement using Static Converter (STATCOM)
Sensorless permanent magnet motor drives for more electric aircraft applications
