The power division is involved in both research and educational activities. The research interests of this division can be summarized in power systems protection and operation stability, power system dynamics and control, power system software design, power system harmonics, reactive power control, electrical machines, power electronics and drives, switching power supplies, power system protection, power quality, electrical insulation and high voltage, lightning protection, EMC, and electrical energy management.
The main objective of the recently developed graduate level program in electrical energy management is to provide relevant education for individuals, working or intended to work, in electrical energy demand and consumption management projects and programs for both public and private sectors and governmental establishments. It covers fundamental methods and techniques in energy planning, the economic appraisal of energy projects, energy policy analysis, and electricity economics. This encompasses fundamental techniques of energy auditing, economic appraisal of energy conservation projects, efficient component and system design, energy conservation policy formulation and implementation, and planning for the dynamic control and management of energy demand and consumption in buildings and industries.
