Course summary

This course covers various aspects of planning, operation and control of electric power networks of the 21st century, which are required to support and facilitate decarbonisation of the electricity, heat and transport sectors. The unique challenges posed by high penetration of variable renewables and electric vehicles in the power network and bulk power transmission over long distances require specialised know-how, which will be provided by this course. The course content draws on our research experience in the areas of power systems, power electronics, control and power economics.

From this course, you will gain:

  • an understanding of the operating practice, design standard and regulatory policies in the electricity supply industry
  • knowledge of power transmission and distribution network operation and control
  • competency in modelling, analysis and optimisation of power networks
  • competency in advanced signal and data analysis.

Graduates will be equipped to pursue a career with the transmission or distribution network operators, electric power utilities, power equipment manufacturers, power/energy consulting, regulators and so on.

This course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council. It meets the full academic requirements for registration as an Incorporated Engineer and partially meets the academic requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng).
