Electrical Power Systems Engineering
This course is about keeping things in balance; not just the balance between generation and load or between production and consumption of reactive power; it is also about the balance between the cost of energy and its environmental impact or the balance between the reliability of the supply and the investments needed to develop the system; these programmes teach students how to quantify both sides of these equations and then how to improve the balances through technological advances and the implementation of sophisticated computing techniques.
An Upper 2nd Class Honours degree, or international equivalent, in an electrical and electronic engineering discipline; students who do not already possess a recognised English language qualification need to take a test such as IELTS or TOEFL and attain a minimum of IELTS 6.5 (with no sub test < 5.5), TOEFL 570 with 5.0 in the TWE (Test of Written English) or CBTOEFL 230 with 5.0 in the TWE.
Modules include: Introduction to power engineering; power system analysis; power system plant and operation; asset management and dynamics; sustainable electricity systems; economics and quality and power systems protection.
Assessment is by a research project.
