This new course considers aspects of sustainable energy generation as well the issues concerned with bulk electrical energy transport to the ultimate user. In order to design and develop our future energy networks, we need knowledge and understanding of the current infrastructure, and therefore this course will provide a solid grounding in generation, transmission and distribution engineering in addition to considering the wider issues of energy, renewable generation and sustainability.
The course is particularly relevant for students considering a career in the electrical power industry. It is designed to meet a growing specific industrial need – the development of future power engineers capable of meeting the challenge of providing secure sustainable energy to consumers in the mot efficient and cost-effective way possible.
Semester one: Power Systems Analysis; Power Generation - Technology and Impact on Society; Transmission and Distribution; Fundamental Principles of Energy
Semester two: Advanced Electrical Materials; High Voltage Insulation Systems; Power Electronics for DC Transmission; Mechanical Power Transmission / Vibrations; Green Electronics; Nuclear Energy Technology; Renewable Energy from Environmental Flows; Bioenergy; Energy Resources and the Environment
First- or upper second-class degree or an equivalent standard in other qualifications approved by the University in an appropriate discipline (e.g. physics, engineering, or applied mathematics). English language: IELTS 6.5, with minimum of 6.0 in each component.
Recipient: University of Southampton
