Description

The Group has a wide range of facilities for the design, production and testing of electronic, communication and optical equipment.
The Power Systems Laboratories are located on the ground floor of the Fraser Noble Building. Separate laboratories support both research and teaching in Electrical systems and power electronics. Purpose-built high power transmission facilities support experimental research. Equipment includes a test Direct Current rig with DC fault protection and DC/DC voltage transformation capability (900V, 30kW 5-converter Direct Current network). A recent addition is a 30kW prototype DC/DC converter and a DC circuit breaker. The DC network provides a unique capability to test integration of large offshore renewable power parks with DC grids.
