The Electrical Energy Management Group researches, designs, builds and tests advanced energy conversion systems containing energy storage elements, and renewable energy, power electronic and electro-mechanical conversion systems, in order to optimise efficiency or power and energy density.
New electrical energy management and control techniques, demonstrated on systems subjected to realistic load regimes and environmental conditions. Expertise in 'more-electric' technologies, micro-renewables, ultra-high efficiency power converters, wide-bandgap power device operation, multi-level inverters, integrated magnetics, high-efficiency and high fidelity amplifier design, and ultra-low power electronics for energy harvesting.
March 2014: Dr. Xibo Yuan has been awarded an EPSRC Grant on "Multilevel Current Source Converters", exploring high-reliability and high-density solution for electric power conversion.
January 2014: Welcome to 4 new postdoctoral researchers: Dr Salah Adami, Dr Chunhong Zhang, Plamen Proynov, and Dr Ian Laird.
December 2013: Congratulations to Dr Sam Williamson and Dr Philip Anthony for receiving commendations for their PhD theses.
October 2013: £12M EPSRC project SPHERE kicks off. The EEMG is leading the £2M work package on energy harvesting and wireless power.
We currently have 7 members of academic staff, 7 Research Fellows and Assistants, and around 20 PhD students:
