  • Programme Description


    MSc SENSE develops your skills in electrical power engineering, innovation processes and entrepreneurship in the emerging field of Smart Grids. The inclusion of innovation, and its connection to developing new business ventures together with industrial partners, makes the programme unique.

    MSc SENSE focuses on understanding, modelling and analyzing the principles behind electric power generation, transmission, distribution and utilisation. Topics range from the design, operation, control and monitoring of individual components to the power system in its entirety.

    Existing technologies make up the bulk of the course content, but strong emphasis is also given to novel and innovative technologies that may stimulate the evolution of existing power grids into a ‘Smart Grid’. The innovation process itself, plus the route towards new business development in the electric power area, is addressed.

    SENSE displays strong interaction between its innovation projects and its industrial and research partners, who can be found all over Europe and throughout the world. Examples of industrial partners include ABB, Vattenfall and IREQ.

    The programme gives engineering students a highly relevant and advanced education within the smart grid concept. Smart power grids are the electrical power system of the future. They  operate in accordance with many of the key requirements that a sustainable energy system. must meet:

    Capacity - Supply the required electric power to all consumers at any instant.

    Decarbonisation - How to decarbonise the transportations and the changeover and incorporation of electric vehicles.  

    Efficiency - Transport of electric power from producer to consumer in the most efficient way.

    Flexibility - How electric energy trading can become more flexible.

    Reliability - Actions taken to ensure that no consumer will be without electricty at any time.

    Sustainability - Incorporation of renewable energy sources and the system impact of highly distributed generation.

    Next application period opens in December 2012. Please sign up to newsletter further down on this page to be noticed.
