Summary

Over the past few years electric power supply systems have undergone a phenomenal transition. This has mainly been driven by increasing power generation by renewable energy sources, growth in flexible transmission to meet carbon commitments while producing a reliable and secure supply, developments in the transportation of electricity, the use of IT for system control and regulation, and regulatory and policy changes.

Electricity consumption has been increasing at an unprecedented rate across the world, and is predicted to grow by 48% by 2040. There is a growing need for power engineers, and you will be equipped to pursue careers that involve the design, modelling, analysis and control of power systems; as well as the business aspects of the industry.

The course is a combination of studies on the operating principles of renewable energy integrated electricity systems, the economic and regulatory frameworks for network planning, and in-depth optimisation and application system theory. It draws on our last 15 years of research expertise in the area of power system control, power system economics and power electronics; and our influencing of UK and Europe’s energy policy.
