You’ll develop the ability to critically evaluate methodologies, analytical procedures and research methods in renewable energy sources; the design of stand-alone, grid connected and hybrid sustainable electrical power systems; power system engineering, power electronics for power quality and grid integration; and regulatory frameworks for power systems and electricity markets.

Our facilities include a practical power systems laboratory. Our computing capability includes a grid-enabled cluster of processors consisting of 20 dual processor nodes with dual Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. Our power system software includes MATLAB/SIMULINK, Orcad, PSCAD, DigSILENT, IPSA, ETAP and PowerWorld.
The Brunel Institute of Power Systems is an internationally leading research group specialising in the optimal design, operation and modelling of power systems, and in the economics of electricity markets.
