Sustainable Electrical Power MSc
About the course
The Sustainable Electrical Power MSc develops graduates
capable of leading teams which will operate, design, analyse,
secure, stabilise, control, regulate and manage the sustainable
electrical power systems and networks of the future.
The course equips you with the ability to critically evaluate
methodologies, analytical procedures and research methods in:
Renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, hydro,
bioenergy, geothermal and nuclear.
Design of stand-alone, grid-connected and hybrid
sustainable electrical power systems.
Power system engineering, using state-of-the-art
computational tools and methods.
Power electronics for power quality and grid integration.
Regulatory frameworks for power systems and electricity
