Renewable Energy And Distributed Generation MSc
One year (MSc), 9 months (Diploma)
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. The techniques used to generate electrical power are also changing. 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.
Graduates of this course will develop critical understanding of the significant changes electrical energy networks and the methods of electrical generation are currently, and for the foreseeable future, engaged in and the implications of these changes. This course will develop graduates of a calibre capable of developing and implementing creative solutions to the problems encountered in renewable energy and distributed generation and the supply of electrical energy in general.
