Overview

This is a specialist Electrical Engineering programme. Electrical energy networks and the methods by which electrical energy is generated are changing. Generating resources are being connected to the distribution network rather than the transmission network. These distributed resources include renewables and conventional thermal plant.

This includes increased renewable generation, primarily from wind resources, and embedded generation which includes co-generating (thermal and electrical) plant. The integration of distributed generation within existing networks causes particular problems in the control of power flow, power quality and protection. Also exploiting renewable resources requires novel and innovative engineering.
