The main goal of the Master's Degree in "Electrical Energy Conversion and Power Systems" is the training of qualified staff in areas related to electrical energy management, emphasizing in power systems for renewable energies. The Master presents a double approach: scientific and professional. In the scientific thread, training focuses on the design of two main applications: Electrical Power Systems and Electrical and Hybrid Traction Systems. On the other hand, in the professional thread, training is focused on the management of electrical energy. Thus, the subjects of this thread have been designed attending to two main issues, such as the management of energy in large consumers and the generation and transmission of electrical energy in a liberalized market.

Three main lines have been considered as keystones in the Master:

  • Electrical Power Systems
  • Electrical and Hybrid Vehicles
  • Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energies

The above mentioned lines are among those areas of knowledge identified by the ANEP (Spanish Governmental Agency for Evaluation and Prospective Tasks) as strategic sectors in the Spanish National Programme of Projects of Fundamental Investigation. (http://www.micinn.es/). In particular, the tasks and skills gained by one student after completing the Master are directly related to one of the following topics:

  • Environment and Innovation in Ecosystems
  • Energy
  • Transport and Infrastructures
  • Industrial Sectors
