Development of a GIS-based underground transmission line route planning tool (FULLY FUNDED)
Industrial Partner: Siemens
The objective of this project is to investigate the potential for route optimisation for underground power transmission lines. This will involve research into a number of datasets from a variety of sources, as well as routing algorithms and data processing techniques. The end-goal is to produce an automated route planning -support tool that is capable of calculating optimal routes for underground power transmission lines, in order to improve efficiency in the planning of energy projects.
For this project, we are looking for students from any of the following backgrounds:
Electrical and Electronic Engineering
Planning, Geography and Environment

This project is funded by EPSRC, the University of Manchester and our Industry partners. Funding is available to UK candidates. EU candidates are also eligible if they have been studying or working continuously in the UK for three or more years (prior to the start date of the programme). The successful candidates will have their fees paid in full and will receive an enhanced maintenance stipend.
