Future electrical power generation system integration and control


Supervisors: Professor M Pourkashanian, Professor L Ma, Professor K Hughes

With the projected increase in the contributions from renewable energy to the power generation mix in the foreseeable future, a new control strategy of power generation and supply need to be investigated to mitigate the impact of the uncertainties of renewable power sources.

The research will be focused on how best to match the power generation from a network consisting of renewable (usually fluctuating), nuclear and the conventional fossil fuel based power generations to the fluctuating electricity demand in a large scale. The research will be mainly modelling based, integrated and supported by measurements.
