Course summary

This course is distinctive as it combines the more traditional subjects of electrical engineering with the more recent advances in power electronics and computer control. Many modern electrical installations include advanced machine drives which are computer controlled for optimised performance and efficiency.The course provides insight into these and prepares the graduate to meet the challenges of advanced power engineering systems. It offers common modules at level 4 setting the background and covers electrical machines, power electronics and electrical services to buildings etc. at L5 to serve as an intermediate for more advanced treatment of related topics at L6. At L6 more detailed power systems engineering, electrical energy converters as well as systems for (built) environmental services are covered alongside a comprehensive module on renewable energy. The combination of these modules will enable graduates to acquire knowledge of, and skills to apply, in the modern Electrical Power engineering area, which encompasses not only traditional power systems and electrical energy conversion but also electrical systems in building services area and the use and application of power electronics in designing systems for renewable energy.The BEng (Hons) Electrical Power Engineering programme aims to produce graduates who have acquired and can use a broad base of active knowledge in the fields of Electrical Engineering, Power Engineering, Power Electronic applications in the areas of energy conversion and renewable energy technologies, Electrical building services etc, and the skills necessary to update, extend and deepen it for career development or further study. Some of the skills that students would gain during the course of study and are of vital importance to the industry are:1. Gain experience of programming using a structured/object-oriented language, such as C/C++.2. Gain experience of producing designs using an industry standard Electrical Design software, AMTECH.3. Gian experience of working with MATLAB and various Simulink toolboxes.4. Gain experience of working with a Power Systems Simulation software such as ERACS.The overall aim of this course is to produce Engineers who hold a qualification that meets the educational requirements of the relevant Professional Engineering Institution for registration at the appropriate level. The BEng course fully satisfies the academic requirements for membership of the Institution of Engineering and Technology registration as an Incorporated Engineer and partially satisfies the requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer
