Energy engineering research
Energy engineering is a core strength of Wolfson School, with a very broad reach from energy generation, storage, transmission, utilisation and energy systems management through to energy delivery and utilisation in power train activities.
We host a number of world leading groups in powertrain technologies, specifically combustion, transmission systems and analysis and are host to the internationally leading Centre for Renewable Energy Systems Technology.
Activities we address include but are not limited to:
- Renewable energy technologies
- SMART grids
- Pulsed power and applications
- Energy storage
- Powertrain engineering
- Energy efficiency
Dynamics Research Group
A leading group in the fundamentals of multi-body dynamics and its applications to all forms of machines and mechanisms
Thermofluids and Combustion Research Group
The Group’s work covers industrially and environmentally relevant projects associated principally with the automotive, internal combustion engine, power and medical industries.
Plasma and Pulsed Power Research Group
The group focuses on basic principles and technological challenges of plasma and pulsed power systems, aiming at translating advances in fundamental understanding into novel practical solutions.
Sustainable Manufacturing Research Group
This group has a multi-disciplinary team with a diverse background and skill set.
Mechanics of Advanced Materials Research Group
The group undertakes multi-disciplinary research into the response of advanced engineering and bio-materials to various types of external loading and environmental conditions, using a combination of analytical, numerical and experimental techniques.
Healthcare Engineering Research Group
The theme of this cross-disciplinary translational research group is the design, manufacture and exploitation of current and next generation medical technologies.
Centre for Renewable Energy Systems Technology Research Centre
The Centre for Renewable Energy Systems Technology is the largest and leading UK sustainable energy research centre.
