Energy Systems Design

Module Title - Energy Systems Design
Number of credits – 10

It is necessary for engineers to be able to use their technical expertise to design processes and systems that can improve on current practice through implementation of innovative, more efficient designs or yield a step change increase in performance via novel technology.

This module will allow you to use your engineering expertise gained via other modules and their previous experience, supplemented with information from pertinent guest lectures, and apply such to the field of energy system design.

The syllabus will include analysis of the UK energy mix, transmission and distribution from an industrial/government point of view, as opposed from that of the purely theoretical.

Students will ultimately be expected to design a technology pathway to a specific type of energy system for a small conurbation for near-future implementation of policy and infrastructure (5-10 years).
