The University of Manchester – School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering
|Country: United Kingdom|
Description: The University of Manchester is the largest single-site university in the UK, offering students a greater choice of degree programmes and options, along with excellent facilities and student support services. The Electrical Energy and Power Systems (EEPS) group at the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering is at the forefront of research and teaching in the field of electric power engineering in the United Kingdom and internationally with its 10 permanent academic members of staff and its 30+ researchers.
EEPS People are in constant contact with industry and at the vanguard of the research trends in electric power engineering. As the home to the National Grid High Voltage Research Centre, the EEPS group is very strong in many aspects of high voltage engineering. Particular areas of competency include transformer insulation and monitoring, polymeric insulation and power system transients.
Research of the Electrical Energy and Power Systems (EEPS) group goes along three main axes:
- Power Systems Analysis, Operation and Economics
- High Voltage and Power System Plant
- Power System Protection, Control and Communications
PC consists of 9 academic staff, and over forty PhD candidates, Post-Doctoral Researchers and Experimental Officers. The Group covers a range of power conversion technologies, and hosts the Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre (UTC) in Power Conversion Systems, which contains the Intelligent Electric Power Network Evaluation Facility (IEPNEF). The group also has a 240kW 180kWh AC-grid connected energy storage system with a real-time control platform interface to enable rapid controller prototyping.
Research of the Power Conversion (PC) group includes:
- Energy Storage and Electrical System Integration
- Superconducting Fault Current Limiters
- Power Electronics and Electrical Machine Design
- Condition Monitoring
