Electricity is the most flexible and efficient source of energy to power mankind. If we improve the exploitation of sustainable energy sources, electricity is sure to play a leading role throughout the foreseeable future. In the decades to come, a revolution will unfold in the generation and delivery of electrical power, driven by the large-scale introduction of renewable and distributed power generation, the need for environmentally-friendly and sustainable components and the liberalisation of the energy markets.
Electrical power engineers are needed in order to design new components with an eye towards sustainable materials and efficient conversion processes, as well as to integrate them into a smart and adaptable electricity infrastructure.
When you join TU Delft’s track in Electrical Power Engineering, you will get an in-depth understanding of the challenges that electrical power engineers must overcome. The programme covers a wide range of issues, including renewable energy, smart grids, environmentally friendly material technologies, the decentralisation of power generation, power-systems operation, power electronics and electrical machines.
