Peter Armstrong's picture



I graduated from Edinburgh with a Meng in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering prior to working for two years on the design of a hybrid electric transmission.

I am currently investigating the potential application of thermal energy storage (TES) technologies to power systems to help mitigate the challenges that arise from intermittent energy sources. Presently my D. Phil is aimed at examining different power system topologies which incorporate TES with a view to identifying the optimum combination of technologies that balance supply and demand whilst ensuring power quality is maintained.
