This research theme is closely linked to and motivated by the growth in distributed generation in the UK and around the world at one hand and by the need to replace or extend the life of existing ageing power system equipment. It is also driven by the imperative to develop more sustainable energy systems with significant penetration of renewable energy sources as well as demand side participation within the context of smarter grids.
Our research also involves advanced power system modelling and optimisation including modelling and optimisation of multi energy carrier networks, data analytics, power system dynamics, and power quality.
Our research is often conducted in collaboration with industrial partners. Our most recent project is VISOR which aims to demonstrate the role of innovative measurement technologies and wide area monitoring in ensuring the success of our low carbon future.
