The Power and Energy Group (PEG)

Fundamental and Applied Research

The Power and Energy Group (PEG) at the Lincoln School of Engineering conducts fundamental and applied research in all aspects of power and energy production, distribution, industrial prognostics and diagnostics, and control, with key application sectors currently including low carbon/emissions engines, gas turbines, energy storage and peak power buffer technologies, smart energy and renewables research. An example of the fundamental part of the research portfolio of the group is the optimisation of fuel-air combustion processes for ICE and gas turbines, extending the life-in-service of combustion chamber hardware, and CHP systems to maximise the efficacy of integrated low- and high-grade heat sources.

The group conducts thermofluid modelling, for the aerodynamic design of ship superstructures to improve the operational envelope of maritime helicopters, for instance, and more generally applied R&D across a wide range of market sectors e.g. automotive, aerospace, industrial, and commercial.
