Course content

This course will develops skills in planning, designing and operating that are needed by engineers working in the 21st century electricity industry which is driven by clean and low carbon energy sources.

Worldwide electricity useage has been growing at an unprecedented rate with energy consumption predicted to grow by 56% in the next 25 years. There is a growing need for more trained power engineers, and you will be equipped to persue careers that involve design, modelling, analysis and control, and the business aspects of bulk electric power supply systems.

About the MSc in Future Power Networks

The course content draws on our last 10 years of research expertise in the areas of power system control, economics and power electronics.

From studying this degree you will gain

  • an understanding of operating practice, design standard and regulatory policies in the electricity supply industry
  • knowledge of power transmission and distribution grid operation code
  • competency in the advanced modelling and analysis of a large system
  • competency in advanced signal and data analysis
  • operating knowledge of commonly adopted power system simulation tools (DigSilent, EMTDC-PSCAD, Matlab, PSSE and Power System Toolbox)

Graduates will be equipped to pursue careers that involve design, modelling, analysis and control, and the business aspects of bulk electric power supply systems.
