The MSc in Electrical Power Systems Engineering aims to keep pace with the rapidly evolving electricity industry. The programme includes the latest developments in the electricity industry and delivers up-to-date topics on electrical power system plants, advanced power system analysis as well as on the structure and regulatory aspects of the industry.
The course starts with a review of the fundamentals of power systems and progresses through to advanced topics incorporating the latest smart grid technologies as well as techniques applied in the planning, design and operation of modern power systems within both regulated and liberalised environments. All course units include laboratory sessions or practical exercises to bring theory into practice. Every student will also be allocated an individual dissertation project in a specialised topic of research with industrial relevance.
