Electrical power engineering

solar panels in field

Our group researches and develops electrical technologies with a focus on efficient power transmission, satellite technology and renewable power generation.


The EPE group's research interests range from nanoscale insulation materials and plasma, through to electrical power systems and sustainable energy generation.

We apply our research across areas including;

  • advanced materials
  • condition monitoring
  • energy and power engineering
  • modelling and simulation
  • plasma and space science

As part of the School of Electronics and Computer Science, our group is central to enterprise in the University of Southampton. We provide consultancy and commercial testing services and our main facility is the Tony Davies High Voltage Laboratory.

We've created 2 companies from the strength of our research:

Wolfson Electrostatics: one of the world's leading centres of expertise in its field. It specialises in the control of electrical and electrostatic hazards in industry.

Mars Space, which provides services and consultancy on space and plasma engineering and science.
