  Modelling and Simulation of Closed Cycle Gas Turbine for Power Generation using Solar and/or Nuclear Heat Sources
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

To meet the ever increasing energy demand worldwide, closed cycle gas turbine power plants have the potential to complement the conventional coal-fired power plants and the open cycle gas turbine power plants.
  Nonlinear control of grid-tied inverters for stabilising future smart grids
  Dr G Konstantopoulos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Power systems stability has been an active area of research for many decades. However, recently, the large number of renewable energy sources being integrated to the power network has started to significantly affect the stable and reliable operation of the grid.
  Performance Assessment and Flexibility Study of Natural Gas-Fired Power Plants Integrated with Intensified Solvent Based Carbon Capture
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Natural gas-fired (mainly combined cycle gas turbine) power plants are becoming increasingly popular due to its cleaner nature. Solvent based carbon capture is the most matured technology for commercial deployment in natural gas-fired power plants.
  Process Modelling and Flexibility Study of Coal-Fired Power Plants Integrated with Intensified Solvent Based Carbon Capture
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coal is the major primary energy source in many countries such as China and India. Coal-fired power plants are the largest single sources of CO2 emissions.
  SolarBioChip: development of a solar bio-battery for printed bioelectronics
  Prof M Shaffer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Funded by the Leverhulme Doctoral Scholarship Programme in Cellular Bionics – 3 year PhD studentships. Supervisors. Prof Milo Shaffer | Prof Peter Nixon | Prof Klaus Hellgardt.
  High Power Renewable Energy Nano Catalysis – Fundamental and Applied Electrochemistry
  Prof A Schechter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of a low-cost, high-performance fuel cell is hindered by the lack of an active and electrocatalysts at the anode and cathode.
  The development of a fuel cell stack (power generator) for APU applications
  Dr A El-Kharouf
Application Deadline: 3 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project focuses on the development of a low weight, low volume portable fuel cell device that can be used either as an APU system for small military vehicles or as a power supply for soldiers’ operation.
  Process Simulation, System Identification, Model Reduction and Process Control of Solvent Based Carbon Capture for Power Plants
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is viewed as a key technology to reduce anthropogenic CO2 emissions worldwide. We have pilot plants or even large scale commercial deployment of solvent based carbon capture plants.
  PhD Scholarship in thermochemical energy storage materials for concentrating solar thermal power
  Dr M Paskevicius
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This Research-only PhD is directed towards developing high temperature materials that store thermochemical energy for large-scale solar thermal plants so they can operate 24/7.
  Systems engineering of flexible demand technologies powered by renewable energy
  Research Group: Process Development and Integration
  Prof A Kiss
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The availability of cheap renewable energy (e.g. solar, wind) is dramatically changing the energy sector and the landscape of power plants.
