Outline Syllabus:
The range of the detailed syllabus will be adjusted to the requirements of the students depending on the material required for their work based practice reflection. However, it would be expected that their study will cover some or all of the material shown below.

Principles of generation - synchronous machine, faults and protection systems, transmission and distribution, economics of power systems, deregulation. Principles of embedded generation, renewable energy sources - solar, biogas, CHP systems.

Students will consider these issues critically with respect to a specific case study.
