Electrical Power and Energy Conversion

The Electrical Power and Energy Conversion group focuses on superconductivity, power electronic devices and integrated circuits, and their uses in various applications. Other major research strands include solar cells and their integration in power systems, integrated design of electrical machines and drives, electromagnetic modelling for industrial applications, novel sensors and electrical power applications of superconductivity.


With the ever increasing integration of renewables and rapidly changing power requirements, the supply and regulation of electricity is changing rapidly. New advancements in power electronics, superconductivity, solar power, machines and wireless power transfer present considerable opportunities. Comprising approximately 40 members (7 academics, 10 post-doctoral researchers and 25 students) we have a diverse range of experience and interests which covers large parts of the Energy Sector.  The Electrical Power and Energy Conversion Group has excellent facilities, is at the centre of the coming power revolution and is always interested in new research challenges.
