  • The integration of distributed and non-dispatchable renewable energy into the wider energy system (electricity, heat/cold and transport) poses significant challenges for the design and operation of the energy system. For example, due to the increasing fraction of non-dispatchable generation it becomes more important to provide novel mechanisms to balance supply and demand.

  • Fluid dynamics plays an essential role in our everyday life. You might think of our blood flow, on hot summer days the air-conditioning system, the potable water network, or stirring our coffee in the mornings to enhance the mixing process and the heat transfer.

  • Racing Sailing Yachts

    An EU - New Zealand research collaboration to develop synergies and make cutting edge breakthroughs in Yacht Engineering.

    Our objectives:

  • Break-down of domestic electricity demand by load type

    The Smart Grid Journal Club brings together researchers from various disciplines working on smart grid related topics.  We meet on a regular bi-weekly basis and we discuss journal publications on smart grids.  We are an open and friendly group and we try to keep our meetings relaxed and informal.  If you are interested in joining us, please send us an email.

  • Soft Robotics

    Our research focuses on unconventional, manufacturable, and bioinspired approaches to engineering. Examples of these approaches include our current, and previous, research on:

  • UDRC logo

    Signal Processing is fundamental to the capability of all modern sensor weapon systems and the Defence Technology Strategy identified the development and application of signal processing techniques as high priority technical challenges within the MOD research agenda.

    The UDRC is a leading partnership between industry, defence and is academia led and focuses on sensor signal processing for defence.

  • How droplets and liquid films interact with surfaces and how the surfaces can affect these interactions plays a key role in many processes. Applications such as heat exchangers, microfluidics/lab-on-a-chip, anti-icing and inkjet printing are all processes that can benefit from a thorough knowledge of liquid-surface interactions.
