Optimization of solar power plant performance through energy management strategies

The project provides a framework from which an individual can put into practice theories and concepts learned on the programme. This provides an opportunity to study a particular topic in depth and present evidence of independent investigation. At the same time students are required to show evidence of ability to plan and manage a project toa strict deadline. Moreover, the student has the opportunity to develop and demonstrate his or her own personal abilities in Manufacturing, Engineering or Project Management environment and to review, critically analyse and apply the recent findings of other researchers.

Projects/Dissertations need to demonstrate knowledge and understanding beyond undergraduate level and should also reach a level of scope and depth beyond that taught in class. All Projects/dissertations must be presented in an appropriate academic style and format. It is important that the aims and objectives of the project/dissertation are clearly expressed and are achievable within the given time frame.

This project handbook provides guidance and information on how to carry out a project. It covers: the aims of the project, the way in which projects are initiated, managed and assessed. However, it is unlikely to answer all  questions which you may have. Therefore, it is vital that each student meets regularly with his or her supervisor to ensure that the supervisor can be kept up-to-date with the progress of the project so they can advise on any issues that may arise. The supervisor has a timetabled allowance for this purpose. Where necessary, the project tutors should be informed of any exceptional problems that arise as soon as possible.
