Master of Science Electrical Energy Systems

This education program is dedicated to Electrical Energy Systems with special focus on industrial applications.

The lectures and projects are dispatched in 3 separated paths: Power Electronics and Grids, Electrodynamic and Mechatronics, New Technologies of Energy.

Major themes: mechatronics, power electronics, electrical grids, renewable energy, sustainable design

Aims of the program

This program enables students to acquire new skills related to the production, storage, transmission, conversion (including electromechanical conversion) and use of electrical energy.

The high-level teaching team, whose members belong to the LAPLACE, LAAS and LGC research laboratories, teaches students the design of power systems (dimensioning and control): static converters, electromechanical converters, mixed energy configurations, including renewable energies, transport and autonomous networks (smartgrids). This design approach is based on analytical system modeling, numerical optimization and simulation, considering couplings and interactions between system parts. Aspects of sustainability and efficiency are also taken into account.

The courses are supported by numerous group projects designed to help students apply theoretical knowledge.

This Master is teach by INP – ENSEEIHT
