Future Power Networks and Smart Grids

Organization profile

Organisation profile

The University of Strathclyde, Imperial College London and our industrial partners have invested heavily in facilities to test and verify key smart grid technologies. This provides a unique opportunity for students to gain a wide range of experience of testing and prototyping new smart grid technologies. The experiential modules will be coordinated to follow relevant advanced topic modules. Students will also have the opportunity to undertake an industrial or international secondment of up to three months.

Fingerprint Dive into the research topics where Future Power Networks and Smart Grids is active. These topic labels come from the works of this organisation's members. Together they form a unique fingerprint.
