Teaching

  • EG-342 Power Systems

    This module aims to introduce the component of a Power Network and discuss their operation in both balanced and unbalanced conditions

  • EG-D05 MSc Dissertation - Electrical Engineering

    The module aims to develop fundamental research skills. It comprises the development of supervised research work leading to a dissertation in the field of the Master's degree programme. The specific research topic will be chosen by the student following consultation with academic staff.

  • EGLM05 Advanced Power Systems

    This module will study Power Networks control including active power-frequency control, voltage-reactive power control and fault analysis. Integration of Renewable resources (including wind and solar) within the grid will be also discussed, which leads to the introduction of of distributed generation, microgrids and smart grids.

  • EGLM07 Power Systems with Project

    This module aims to introduce the component of a Power Network and discuss their operation in both balanced and unbalanced conditions. The students are required to self-study Load Flow analysis using the provided lecture notes (and other sources). Load Flow analysis will be assessed by a project (not in the final exam), which is 25% of the final mark.

  • EGLM114 Computational Case Study in Power Engineering and Sustainable Energy

    The aim of the module is to undertake an in-depth study into the use of computational methods (numerical and/or analytical) in engineering practice related to the areas of power engineering and sustainable energy by carrying out a detailed literature survey and state of the art examination in a given topic of specialisation.
