    Renewable energy and reduction of carbon emissions are now topping the global environmental agenda. Renewable generation techniques are now producing unfamiliar problems in stability, control and conversion, whilst power distribution networks are reaching their capacity limits. Nevertheless enormous advances in semiconductor power devices and the application of enabling technologies are overcoming these problems. Power is again one of the most active areas in electrical engineering and electronics.
    Against this background, the course addresses the fundamentals of renewable energy and shows how solar, wind, wave and other such energy sources can be efficiently integrated into practical power systems.

    This advanced course in electrical engineering applied to renewable energy is distinctive in providing a solid, rigorous treatment of core power engineering topics. This comprises of power electronic converters, machines and control reinforced by modules on power system modelling, analysis and power converters, which are specific to renewable energy sources. It also offers a unique set of modules in the efficient generation of electricity from solar, wind and wave power. The integration of renewable generators into micro-grids, with stability analysis and active power management, is also covered. Power electronics design is covered in depth, including conventional and emerging converter topologies and recent advances in semiconductor power devices.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.

    Program requirements

    A degree equivalent to a UK upper second class (2:1) honours degree or equivalent in appropriate numerate disciplines usually electronic engineering, but others may be considered.Applicants with a good lower second class (2:2) honours degree and who have relevant experience may also be considered and should not be deterred from applying.We also welcome and accept students with a wide range of international equivalent qualifications.English language requirement: A pass at GCSE level in English language (grade C or above). If English is not your first language, you are required to provide evidence of proficiency in English. You will need to meet our minimum requirements for one of the following recognised English language tests: the International English Language Testing Service (IELTS), the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) and the Pearson Test of English Academic.

    Scholarships worth up to £3,000 available. For more information, please visit our website.
