Course Summary

Our research expertise in Renewable Energy Technologies specialises in areas including renewable energy, smart grids, novel wind energy harvest technologies, energy storage systems, energy saving systems and nano materials, fuel cells, energy-efficient buildings, phase change materials (PCM), piezoelectric and thermoelectric energy harvesting systems, engine emission control, development of optically accessible and race engines; conventional and advanced engine instrumentation, thermofluid modelling/simulation and experimental study for energy & flow physics. In addition our research extends to power management of distributed energy systems and dynamic scheduling, optimisation and control of future smart grids, advanced power electronics and Control for microgrids, energy storage systems including coordinated and optimised integration into the power grid, smart meter data analytics using machine learning techniques for efficient energy management, impact of electric vehicles on the distribution grid and smart charging, and dynamic wireless charging of electric vehicles for ptimisation and infrastructure management. Research in Sustainable Energy Technologies at the University of Hertfordshire has been supported with grants from the EPSRC, InnovateUK and industry. Our PhD programmes enable students to develop specialist research skills and knowledge. We aim to provide research projects that will challenge and in some cases even inspire our students.
