The Electrical Power Research Group at Warwick is set up to conduct internationally leading research and drive for cutting edge technology development in tackling the great challenges in power generation, energy conversion, distribution, transmission and efficient use of energy.
Our research is supported by state-of-the-art research facilities in three research laboratories: Power Electronics, Applications and Technology in Energy Research (PEATER) Laboratory, Power and Control Systems Research laboratory and Power Electronics Applications Lab.
The group’s expertise covers power electronic devices (SiC, fabrications, packaging, reliability, modelling and simulation), power electronics applications, drives and control, power system modelling and control, compressed air energy storage, wind power generation, HVDC, hardware-in-the-loop modelling, simulation and control.
The group has strong links with industry and works with, amongst others, the following companies: Dynex Semiconductor Ltd., Eltek Semiconductors Ltd. E.ON., Alstom, Jaguar Land Rover, AVL, National Grid, GE Energy. The group also has links and conducts collaborative projects with other Universities in the UK and internationally.
