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
