Electrical Energy and Power Systems

The Group focuses on future networks, with research into the design and operation of power-system plant, transmission networks, and smart low-carbon distribution networks, and the development of HVDC expertise. 

Achievements, facilitated by one of the best academic experimental facilities in the UK, include award-winning spin-out company Arago Technology, contributing to the design of Europe's first ester-filled 90MVA green transformer, development of a new approach to wide-area protection using GPS, integration within the European Monitoring System of the first GB-based phasor measurement system and a new method for optimal accommodation of distributed generation.
