Teaching

Electrical Machines and Systems (Undergraduate)

This module introduces the principles of electric power generation, transmission and distribution. It also explains the operation of electric machines and simple power electronic systems.

Electrical Machines and Systems (Postgraduate)

This module introduces the principles of electric power generation, transmission and distribution. It also explains the operation of electric machines and the principles of the protection of power systems. It provides revision of ac and dc circuit theory and analysis of balanced and unbalanced three-phase ac power systems. The methods of generating electric power and how power is transferred from the generating station to industry and domestic consumers will also be explained. The module will include ac and dc generators, ac and dc motors, stepper motors, transformers, ac and dc transmission, protection of power systems and introduce the smart grid.One part of this module introduces the principals and technologies of power system operation (generation, transmission and distribution). This module will have labs either in the electronics lab, or in the ITL

Power Electronics (Postgraduate/Undergraduate)

This module is intended to strengthen the electrical power component of our UG programmes. This has been highlighted as an area of weakness in the past by our accrediting body, the IET. This module is intended to complement ECS618U Electrical Power Engineering. This module will be optional on Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and optional on Electronic Engineering and Electronic Engineering and Telecomms.
