Electrical Power Systems is an introductory subject in the field of electric power systems and electrical to mechanical energy conversion. Electric power has become increasingly important as a way of transmitting and transforming energy in industrial, military and transportation uses. Electric power systems are also at the heart of alternative energy systems, including wind and solar electric, geothermal and small scale hydroelectric generation.
Power system engineering 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 will teach the 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.
The course aims at:
- Providing an advanced education in electrical power engineering.
- Giving graduates the education, the knowledge and the skills they need to make sound decisions in a rapidly changing electricity supply industry.
- Giving a sound understanding of the principles and techniques of electrical power engineering.
- Helping graduates in broadening their knowledge of the issues and problems faced by electrical power engineers.
- Delivering a solid working knowledge of the techniques used to solve these problems.
