Electrical power systems continue to advance and develop across industrial and domestic applications,with almost half of global electrical energy thought to be consumed by electric motors ad motion devices.
As technology continues to develop in these sectors, the need for engineers with relevant, contemporary skills to work with these systems continues to grow. To reflect this demand,this course focuses on subjects in system modelling and simulation, control engineering,plus electrical power systems design and analysis.
Featured specialisms include modern power electronics and drive systems,combined with their controlling mechanisms and modelling using MATLAB software and state space models.
Key Course Features
-Specialism's within this programme feature modern power electronics and drive systems combined with their controlling mechanisms and modelling using MATLAB and state space models. -The MSc in Electrical Power Engineering is accredited by Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) and Energy Institute (EI), and provides you with the required training for registering for Chartered Engineer status.
What Will You Study?
FULL-TIME MODE (SEPTEMBER INTAKE) The taught element, Part One, of the programmes will be delivered in two 12 week trimesters and each trimester has a loading of 60 credits. The six taught modules will have lectures and tutorials/practical work on a weekly basis. The expected timetable per module will be a total of 200 hours, which includes 40 hours of scheduled learning and teaching hours and 160 independent study hours.
Part Two will then take a further 15 weeks having a notional study time of 600 hours. During this time the student will be responsible for managing his/her time in consultation with an academic supervisor.
FULL-TIME MODE (JANUARY INTAKE) For the January intake, students will study three specialist modules first during the second trimester from January to May. Other three common modules the students will study in the first trimester of the next academic year from September to January.
On successful completion of the taught element of the programme the students will be progressed to the Part Two, MSc dissertation to be submitted in April/May.
PART-TIME MODE The taught element, part one, of the programmes will be delivered in two academic teaching years. 80 credits or equivalent worth of modules will be delivered in the first year and 40 credits or equivalent in the second year.
The part time students would join the full time delivery with lectures and tutorials/practical work during one day on a weekly basis. The dissertation element (i.e. Part Two) will start in trimester 2 taking a further 30 weeks having a total notional study time of 600 hours. During this time the student will be responsible for managing his/her time in consultation with an academic supervisor.
AREAS OF STUDY INCLUDE -Engineering Research Methods -Sustainable Design & Innovation -Engineering Systems Modelling & Simulation -Control Systems Engineering -Electrical Power Systems Analysis & Design -Power Electronics & Drive Systems -Dissertation
