Although electrical engineering is a science that has existed for over a century, it has undergone numerous changes in recent years. Some of these changes are the emergence of electronics and its mass introduction in areas that were electrical (the control of electric drives and the introduction of electronics in transport systems and electricity distribution), the incorporation of simulation and modelling techniques, changes in the structure of electric power system businesses caused mainly by their deregulation, and the introduction of a free market of supply and demand.

To address all these changes, society needs electrical engineers who are trained and capable of working in such a changing world and can also drive and foster these changes.

The main aim and rationale of the doctoral degree in Electrical Engineering is to train this type of electrical engineers, as current industrial engineering curricula do not generate this skill set for society.

The programme offers third cycle studies for graduates in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and industrial engineering, to train them in the techniques of researching, developing, modelling and simulating electromechanical devices, systems and processes. Considering the interdisciplinary nature of the programme, a wide range of contents are offered to obtain a full view of all the applied technologies. The contents include the analysis and design of complex electromechanical systems (such as drives, devices and control systems) and the modelling and simulation of these systems, based on electrical and electronic systems.

The origins of the doctoral programme in Electrical Engineering date back to 1987, when the Department of Electrical Engineering was founded at the UPC and the doctoral programme in Electromechanical Engineering was created. Subsequently, in 2003, this programme became the doctoral programme in Electrical Engineering. Finally, the current situation was reached on entry into the EHEA.

General information

Access profile

Any student who has completed a master’s degree in engineering (or the 60 corresponding ECTS) has sufficient capacity to undertake a doctoral degree in our programme. However, preference will be given to students whose knowledge is directly related to electrical engineering. Students from other master’s degrees will be considered if they can demonstrate basic knowledge of fundamental electrical subjects such as electrotechnics and electrical machinery. In general, the programme committee and the future tutor will decide whether these students need to take any bridging courses to study on the doctoral programme.

Output profile

Doctoral candidates who complete a doctoral degree will have acquired the following competencies, which are needed to carry out quality research (Royal Decree 99/2011, of 28 January, which regulates official doctoral studies):

a) A systematic understanding of the field of study and a mastery of the research skills and methods related to the field.
b) An ability to conceive, design or create, put into practice and adopt a substantial process of research or creation.
c) An ability to contribute to pushing back the frontiers of knowledge through original research.
d) A capacity for critical analysis and an ability to assess and summarise new and complex ideas.
e) An ability to communicate with the academic and scientific community and with society in general as regards their fields of knowledge in the manner and languages that are typical of the international scientific community to which they belong.
f) An ability to foster scientific, technological, social, artistic and cultural progress in academic and professional contexts within a knowledge-based society.

The award of a doctoral degree must equip the graduate for work in a variety of settings, especially those requiring creativity and innovation. Doctoral graduates must have at least acquired the personal skills needed to:

a) Develop in contexts in which there is little specific information.
b) Find the key questions that must be answered to solve a complex problem.
c) Design, create, develop and undertake original, innovative projects in their field.
d) Work as part of a team and independently in an international or multidisciplinary context.
e) Integrate knowledge, deal with complexity and make judgements with limited information.
f) Offer criticism on and intellectually defend solutions.

Finally, with respect to competencies, doctoral students must:
a) have acquired advanced knowledge at the frontier of their discipline and demonstrated, in the context of internationally recognised scientific research, a deep, detailed and well-grounded understanding of theoretical and practical issues and scientific methodology in one or more research fields;
b) have made an original and significant contribution to scientific research in their field of expertise that has been recognised as such by the international scientific community;

Duration of studies and dedication regime

Duration
The maximum period of study for full-time doctoral studies is four years, counted from the date of first enrolment in the relevant programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited. The academic committee of the doctoral programme may authorise a doctoral candidate to pursue doctoral studies on a part-time basis. In this case, the maximum period of study is seven years from the date of first enrolment in the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited. To calculate these periods, the date of deposit is considered to be the date on which the thesis is made publicly available for review.

If a doctoral candidate has a degree of disability equal to or greater than 33%, the maximum period of study is six years for full-time students and nine years for part-time students.

For full-time doctoral candidates, the minimum period of study is two years, counted from the date of an applicant's admission to the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited; for part-time doctoral candidates it is four years.

When there are justified grounds for doing so, and the thesis supervisor and academic tutor have given their authorisation, doctoral candidates may request that the academic committee of their doctoral programme exempt them from the requirement to complete this minimum period of study.

Temporary disability leave and leave for the birth of a child, adoption or fostering for the purposes of adoption, temporary foster care, risk during pregnancy or infant feeding, gender violence and any other situation provided for in current regulations do not count towards these periods. Students who find themselves in any of these circumstances must notify the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which must inform the Doctoral School.

Doctoral candidates may request periods of temporary withdrawal from the programme for up to a total of two years. Requests must be justified and addressed to the academic committee responsible for the programme, which will decide whether or not to grant the candidate's request.

Extension of studies
If a doctoral candidate has not applied to deposit their thesis before the expiry of the deadlines specified in the previous section, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may, at the request of the doctoral candidate, authorise an extension of this deadline of one year under the conditions specified for the doctoral programme in question.

Dismissal from the doctoral programme
A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The doctoral candidate not having completed their annual enrolment or applied for a temporary interruption.
  • The doctoral candidate not having formalised annual enrolment on the day after the end of the authorisation to temporarily interrupt or withdraw from the programme.
  • The doctoral candidate receiving a negative reassessment after the deadline set by the academic committee of the doctoral programme to remedy the deficiencies that led to a previous negative assessment.
  • The doctoral candidate having been the subject of disciplinary proceedings leading to their suspension or permanent exclusion from the UPC.
  • A refusal to authorise the extensions applied for, in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.3 of these regulations.
  • The doctoral candidate not having submitted the research plan in the period established in Section 8.2 of these regulations.
  • The maximum period of study for the doctoral degree having ended, in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.4 of these regulations.

Dismissal from the programme means that the doctoral candidate cannot continue studying at the UPC and that their academic record will be closed. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission, and the committee must reevaluate the candidate in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

A doctoral candidate who has been dismissed due to having exceeded the time limit for completing doctoral studies or due to an unsatisfactory assessment may not be Academic Regulations for Doctoral Studies Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya Page 17 of 33 admitted to the same doctoral programme until at least two years have elapsed from the date of dismissal, as provided for in sections 3.4 and 9.2 of these regulations.

Agreements with other institutions

The doctoral programme has strong ties with lecturers in electrical engineering at the University of Girona. As the University of Girona does not offer a doctoral programme in Electrical Engineering, the UPC is the closest university at which to take this doctoral degree. This has happened in some cases. There is no specific agreement between the universities.
The doctoral programme also has strong ties with lecturers in electrical engineering at the Rovira i Virgili University (Tarragona). Likewise, as there is no doctoral programme in Electrical Engineering at this university, the UPC is the closest university at which to take the doctoral degree. This has happened in some cases. There is no specific agreement between the universities.
There is collaboration on research projects and teaching activities with Cardiff University, Imperial College London and Leuven University (KUL).
The Centre for Technological Innovation in Static Converters and Drives (CITCEA) research group is in close contact with the Energy Research Institute of Catalonia (IREC).
For many years, the UPC Lightning Research Group has had ties with Horacio Torres’s group at the National University of Colombia, and reciprocal research visits take place.

Monitoring and evaluation of the doctoral student

Procedure for the preparation and defense of the research plan

Doctoral candidates must submit a research plan, which will be included in their doctoral student activity report, before the end of the first year. The plan may be improved over the course of the doctoral degree. It must be endorsed by the tutor and the supervisor, and it must include the method that is to be followed and the aims of the research.

At least one of these annual assessments will include a public presentation and defence of the research plan and work done before a committee composed of three doctoral degree holders, which will be conducted in the manner determined by each academic committee. The examination committee awards a Pass or Fail mark. A Pass mark is a prerequisite for continuing on the doctoral programme. Doctoral candidates awarded a Fail mark must submit a new research plan for assessment by the academic committee of the doctoral programme within six months.

The committee assesses the research plan every year, in addition to all of the other activities in the doctoral student activity report. Doctoral candidates who are awarded two consecutive Fail marks for the research plan will be obliged to definitely withdraw from the programme.

If they change the subject of their thesis, they must submit a new research plan.

Procedure for assignment of tutor and thesis director

The academic committee of the doctoral programme assigns a thesis supervisor to each doctoral candidate when they are admitted or enrol for the first time, taking account of the thesis supervision commitment referred to in the admission decision.

The thesis supervisor will ensure that training activities carried out by the doctoral candidate are coherent and suitable, and that the topic of the candidate’s doctoral thesis will have an impact and make a novel contribution to knowledge in the relevant field. The thesis supervisor will also guide the doctoral candidate in planning the thesis and, if necessary, tailoring it to any other projects or activities undertaken. The thesis supervisor will generally be a UPC professor or researcher who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience. This includes PhD-holding staff at associated schools (as determined by the Governing Council) and UPC-affiliated research institutes (in accordance with corresponding collaboration and affiliation agreements). When thesis supervisors are UPC staff members, they also act as the doctoral candidate’s tutor.

PhD holders who do not meet these criteria (as a result of their contractual relationship or the nature of the institution to which they are attached) must be approved by the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee in order to participate in a doctoral programme as researchers with documented research experience.

The academic committee of the doctoral programme may approve the appointment of a PhD-holding expert who is not a UPC staff member as a candidate’s thesis supervisor. In such cases, the prior authorisation of the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee is required. A UPC staff member who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience must also be proposed to act as a co-supervisor, or as the doctoral candidate’s tutor if one has not been assigned.

A thesis supervisor may step down from this role if there are justified reasons (recognised as valid by the committee) for doing so. If this occurs, the academic committee of the doctoral programme will assign the doctoral candidate a new thesis supervisor.

Provided there are justified reasons for doing so, and after hearing any relevant input from the doctoral candidate, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may assign a new thesis supervisor at any time during the period of doctoral study.

If there are academic reasons for doing so (an interdisciplinary topic, joint or international programmes, etc.) and the academic committee of the programme gives its approval, an additional thesis supervisor may be assigned. Supervisors and co-supervisors have the same responsibilities and academic recognition.

The maximum number of supervisors of a doctoral thesis is two: a supervisor and a co-supervisor.

For theses carried out under a cotutelle agreement or as part of an Industrial Doctorate, if necessary and if the agreement foresees it this maximum number of supervisors may not apply. This notwithstanding, the maximum number of supervisors belonging to the UPC is two.

    Thesis abstract: This thesis contributes to the field of partial discharges in low-pressure environments, aiming to improve electrical wire interconnecting systems (EWIS) protection in aerospace applications. A series of experimental studies have been conducted to evaluate the potential of corona and surface discharges as indicators of electrical insulation degradation. To this end, the influence of variables such as pressure, pressure drop, frequency, and geometry on corona discharge behaviour has been examined. Furthermore, the performance of various sensors, including CMOS image sensors, photoelectric UV sensors, and acoustic cameras, in detecting corona discharges has been investigated and compared. Additionally, by employing RGB image processing techniques, this thesis presents a novel method for the quantification of corona discharges. This method allowed studying the correlation between the light intensity of electrical discharges and the dissipated electrical energy, with a particular focus on how pressure and frequency variation impacts on this relationship. The feasibility of utilizing corona and surface discharges as an indicator for the degradation of wire insulation has also been explored, providing foundational knowledge for the future development of electrical protection tools aimed at predictive maintenance. The findings from this research contribute to the advancement of predictive maintenance strategies, offering potential for early detection of insulation failures, thereby enhancing the safety and reliability of aerospace electrical systems.

    Thesis abstract: The proliferation of batteries for local storage and electric vehicles (EVs) is rising steadily. The EV market’s prospects point to exponential growth in the coming years. This trend has also contributed to the promotion of local storage using second-life batteries. The emerging electrical landscape aims for an environmentally friendly energy system. However, this new paradigm brings along various technological challenges. Electronic power converters are crucial in managing battery energy in both charging and discharging directions, offering grid flexibility services. Compliance with international safety standards mandates galvanic isolation, particularly in high-power systems. Furthermore, power density is significant in the automotive industry, where space and weight constraints are significant factors. The same holds for dwellings, where land value continues to escalate, especially in urban areas. In this context, the Dual Active Bridge (DAB) converter emerges as a highly suitable power electronics-based component that fulfills all the mentioned requirements. This Isolated Bidirectional DC-DC converter (IBDC) is appealing due to its impressive power density, galvanic isolation, and bidirectional power flow capability. Firstly, this thesis explores the potential of IBDC and addresses a state of-the-art. The next step focuses on the DAB converter, establishing the unification of criteria for the different DAB modulations and obtaining generalized equations for any DAB converter. Moreover, the different parasitic elements of the DAB converter are extensively analyzed. On the one hand, this thesis presents a Triangular Current Modulation with Zero Current Switching (TCM-ZCS). The analysis highlights that six of eight semiconductors operate under ZCS conditions, concentrating turn-off switching losses in the same leg regardless of the power flow direction. This finding suggests the potential for utilizing more cost-effective semiconductor technologies for those operating under ZCS conditions. As a result, a hybrid Si-SiC DAB configuration is considered the preferred hardware option to take advantage of this proposal. On the other hand, the work proposes two DAB modulations that consider all three degrees of freedom to optimize conduction losses and turn-off losses across the entire load and voltage rate range. The optimization algorithms and equations are presented and normalized for clarity, with nomograms as graphical representations. One key contribution of this thesis is the development of equations for implementing minimum conduction loss modulation while guaranteeing Zero Voltage Switching (ZVS) constraints and maintaining stability. The proposed approximation offers precise optimal solutions across the entire operating range, allowing real-time evaluation with low execution time and ensuring a fast dynamic response for any DAB converter. Finally, the last chapter focuses on the positive impact of the transformer’s magnetization inductance on extending the ZVS operation region of the DAB converter. The focus is on understanding the consequences of this extension, particularly in terms of increasing the Root Mean Square (RMS) current and conduction losses. The chapter provides a manageable analytical approximation for real-time modulation implementation.

    Thesis abstract: The massive installation of converter-based resources, such as wind and solar photovoltaic power plants and High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) systems, is resulting in a profound transformation of power systems and their operation. In this context of modern power-electronics-dominated power systems, the converters’ control will play a key role in their performance and stability. This thesis focuses on the stability analysis of converter-dominated power systems, encompassing both small-signal and transient stability, aiming to understand the fundamental operation and limitations of such modern power systems.First, the two most extended Voltage Source Converter’s (VSC) control approaches, grid-following (GFOL) and grid-forming (GFOR), are compared via time domain simulations under different disturbances to identify the main characteristics and potential limitations of both control strategies. Regardless of the converter’s control selected, power system stability must always be ensured, both for small-signal and transient disturbances. In this work, thorough fundamental small-signal analysis are conducted to understand the principles governing network stability in converter-dominated power systems. For this purpose, a methodology to build accurate EMT linear state-space models of large power systems has been implemented. Using these models, a detailed analysis is developed to identify the stability limits of grid-following operation in an essential system, investigating the influence of the VSC’s controllers on the system stability, revealing the main mechanisms of interaction and identifying the minimum synchronous generation to ensure system stability. This work is later extended to a larger power system with several generators in presence of an HVDC link. To this end, an index-based methodology has been developed, which determines the steady-state, small-signal and transient analysis regions of stability.Additionally, previous publications have proved that grid-forming operation can improve power system stability for high penetrations of converters. In this thesis, a comprehensive study of frequency dynamics in modern low-inertia power systems is provided, revealing that the VSC’s dominance can be an opportunity to shape frequency dynamics, which can be designed to follow the desired response. However, considering the GFOR converter’s limitations can lead to synchronisation loss. Therefore, this work analyses the risk of synchronisation loss during frequency excursions for droop-based GFOR converters when active power limitations are considered. In addition, a control modification is proposed to extend the operation frequency range of GFOR converters.Finally, a transient stability study is performed for a future HVDC system that will connect the Balearic power system to the Spanish peninsula. In this realistic scenario, both GFOL and GFOR operation modes are studied, considering several contingencies in the system, such as faults in different locations and line disconnections.

    Thesis abstract: In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the growth of electricity demand. This electricity demand requires retrofitting of lines or exploiting the maximum capacity of existing power lines. In addition, substation connectors are the critical components of power systems since the failure of substation connectors can lead to serve power outages and significantly affect the power transmission efficiency. Therefore, it is vital to have real-time information on key elements of electrical systems, such as connectors and conductors, in order to ensure the reliability and efficiency of power transmission systems. To this end, the Smartconnector project aims to combine ICT (Information and Communication Technologies), IoT (Internet of Things) and data-driven technologies to estimate the state of health of substation connectors and take advantage of the maximum capacity of lines. Over the past few years, several research projects have been carried out to develop a smart high voltage connectors prototype, Smartconnector, in order to collect and wirelessly transmit information from power connectors in real time. Moreover, a prediction model has been proposed to utilize the collected data to separately predict the remaining useful life of connectors. However, improvements, experimental validation and field application are still needed to verify the reliability and feasibility of the Smartconnector prototype. In addition, field application of the IoT device is required for both connectors and conductors.This thesis is dedicated to the development, improvement, and experimental validation of the IoT prototype and the extension of its application to further increase the efficiency of power transmission systems. It is divided into two cores, which include the optimization of the Smartconnector prototype, and the extension of its application. This thesis improves the power management system, which helps to prolong the lifetime of the device. This improvement is based on thermal energy harvesting together with the energy balance strategy. Also, it develops statistical filtering algorithms for data processing. The proposed algorithms are finally implemented on the embedded system of the Smartconnector device, ensuring the accuracy of the continuous measurements. This thesis also focuses on the application of the Smartconnector for the dynamic monitoring of the line capacity considering weather conditions. In conclusion, this thesis aims to provide improvements and developments for the Smartconnector, as well as to open its application to other fields.

    Thesis abstract: The main objective of this thesis is to develop and validate simple but sufficiently accurate mathematical models for single-phase and three-phase transformers, by estimating their parameters from simple laboratory tests and field measurements, in particular, from the information obtained from the inrush current. The energizing process of a transformer results in the generation of a high inrush current due to the saturation of the transformer core. This current can cause several problems, such as protections tripping and consequently being out of service. Clearing faults in the transmission network can also lead to transformer saturation. A part of this work aims to develop methodologies for the reduction of these high inrush currents.In the literature, a great effort has been dedicated to the modeling, identification and analysis of electrical transformers. The representation of a transformer can be very complex due to the different types of core configurations and the large number of transformer parameters, as well as the fact that some of these parameters are nonlinear and even frequency dependent. These include core and coil configurations, self and mutual inductances among coils, dispersion fluxes, skin and proximity effects in coils, magnetic core saturation, hysteresis cycles, losses due to eddy currents, and capacitive effects.The materials commonly used in transformer cores, like ferromagnetic materials, exhibit non-linear magnetic permeability, and usually work slightly saturated. The behavior of a non-linear core is given by the relationship between the magnetic field and magnetic induction, known as the magnetization or saturation curve. There are different ways to model the nonlinear operation of a magnetic core, ranging from finite elements to single-valued functions, through especially complex models such as Jiles-Atherton or Preisach hysteretic models.This work is focused on low frequencies models (up to a few kHz), whose parameters reproduce in detail those situations in which the nonlinearity of the magnetic circuit significantly influences its dynamic behavior. For example, inrush current can be predicted, for which modeling or estimation of the residual flux is necessary. The adjustment of the parameters will be based on experimental measurements to which the developed adjustment algorithms will be applied. These measurements will be obtained both in specific laboratory tests and in transient connection records in transformers connected to the distribution network.Although articles on transformers have been published for more than seventy years, the high number of current publications on their modeling and on the problems derived from their non-linear behavior is an indication that the issue has not been resolved satisfactorily and which is still relevant.

Quality

The Validation, Monitoring, Modification and Accreditation Framework (VSMA Framework) for official degrees ties the quality assurance processes (validation, monitoring, modification and accreditation) carried out over the lifetime of a course to two objectives—the goal of establishing coherent links between these processes, and that of achieving greater efficiency in their management—all with the overarching aim of improving programmes.
