An Information Theoretic Approach to the Smart Grid

The way the smart grid is envisioned in the near future is as a constantly changing system where intermittent renewable sources and non stationary loads impose a turbulent system. Read more

High Voltage DC systems with Grid Forming capability

HVDC are becoming essential and preferred interconnection methods for large scale renewable energy sources, because of technical, economic and environmental advantages [1]. Read more

AI system for Vehicle to Grid power management

Artificial intelligence and machine learning approaches have been utilised for managing power systems, however, the introduction of the electric vehicle made power management more difficult due to the charging and utilisation of individual vehicles. Read more

Data-Driven robust and optimal smart grid control

Reference number. SCEBE/21S/016/IK. Aim and Scope. Smart grids refer to electricity networks that enable a two-way flow of electricity and data with digital communication links to help detect, react and pro-act to changes in demand and other issues. Read more

Centralised Protection and Control (CPC) within a Power Substation to Enhance the Electricity Grid’s Resilience

  Research Group: School of Electronic & Electrical Engineering
Centralized protection and control system (CPC) is a new concept which is considered to be the path forward for addressing the foregoing challenges at substation levels. Read more

Energy-USB: A plug-and-play platform to improve connectivity and operation efficiency of energy storage systems in Smart Grid applications

  Research Group: School of Electronic & Electrical Engineering
A future power system almost entirely running on low carbon energy sources needs significant level of flexibility. Energy storage will play a key role in providing such a required flexibility, in particular, the domestic energy storage devices and electric vehicles will offer the greatest potential. Read more

Model of Energy Demand and Carbon Reduction for Control of Energy Storage

The techniques of Control Theory, Artificial Intelligence and Statistical Data Analysis have been applied to engineering systems with great success, and the resulting is better energy efficiency using storage. Read more

PhD in Engineering - Mitigate the impacts of heat electrification on grid with flexible heating system

The electrification of heat is one of the most promising routes to decarbonising heat. However, this will place a significant strain on local electrical infrastructure, and may increase energy costs for already fuel-poor occupants. Read more

Planning and Design of Distribution Networks with Integration of Smart Grid Technologies

  Research Group: Communication and Networks
The UK Government’s target is to achieve 15% of electricity generation from renewable energy sources (RES) by 2020. The installation of large amounts of RES in distribution networks introduces several economic and technical challenges to distribution network operators (DNOs). Read more

Investigation of Greenhouse Gas Alternatives for Electrical Insulation

Manchester is home to one of the largest electrical and electronic engineering departments in the country. Our High Voltage Laboratory makes us a place renowned for applied research, a place ranked in the top three UK universities for research impact. Read more

Energy Storage Modelling

Supervisory Team.   Prof. Andy Cruden & Dr Richard Wills. Project description. Applications are invited for a fully-funded PhD studentship to investigate the electrical, thermal and economic modelling of a range of electrical energy storage types (e.g. Read more

Powering nationwide water resource systems with low-carbon electricity

A reliable water supply and a successful energy transition are two necessary conditions for a sustainable future. Yet we know little about how the switch to intermittent renewables (wind, solar) for our energy supply will affect the operation of our water infrastructure. Read more
