Course content

The Centre for Doctoral Training in Power Networks is designed to enable those wishing to study for a PhD in this area to further their research interests while developing a wider understanding of the sector and the personal skills to further their careers.

The Centre will help ensure future networks support the electrification of energy, especially heat and transport, and encourage greater use of low carbon energy sources.

To meet these challenges engineers, scientists, mathematicians, social scientists and business experts have been brought together to solve our future problems in: power network design, operation and management; effect of changing energy demands on networks, and the role of planning, governance and cross-cutting technologies.
