DC power flow controller for meshed DC power system


School of Engineering

About the Project

This PhD research project is on the topic of a DC power flow controller for a meshed DC power system.

The future European Super Grid will evolve towards a multi-terminal DC system. Suitable power flow control devices are essential to facilitate the power flow in such highly meshed system. This project will evaluate various options to implement DC power flow control. Converter system modelling and control design will be a focus to address challenges of cost, flexibility, and security.

Candidates should have (or expect to achieve) a UK honours degree at 2.1 or above (or equivalent) in Electrical Engineering

The candidate should have good background knowledge in power electronics, power systems and control engineering, and should be motivated to perform theoretical research and simulation studies.
