Electrical Power Engineering

Electrical Power Engineering is a professional and scientific field of electrical engineering and power systems. It studies and promotes areas of power generation, transmission and distribution of electric energy as well as electric usage and energy management.

By studying power systems engineering, students gain knowledge of fundamentals and applications of electrical power engineering in a wide range of topics: theory of power systems control; optimization methods applied to power systems; energy efficiency methods; reactive power control; electric facilities automation; reliability theory; expert systems; environmental protection; efficient use of energy and energy conservation; economic analysis; disturbances and transient phenomena in power systems; power system protection; transmission and distribution networks network planning; development, stability, availability, reliability and operational safety of electric power system subsystems; mathematical modelling of power plants components and subsystems; deterministic and reliability analysis of operational safety; development modelling and analysis of environmental impact of electric power systems; establishment of open market environment, risk management and electrical energy trading; economy modelling, business and human resources management ,microeconomics, marketing, etc.

Besides education, research is a crucial factor determining the power systems engineering progress with emphasis on the development of new power system technologies.

Bridge courses

A student whose degree is not in Electrical engineering and information technology is required to take additional coursework as follows:

  • students holding bachelor degree in Computing have to enrol the following “bridge” courses:
    • Electrical Circuits (7 ECTS)
    • Electromagnetic Fields (6 ECTS)
  • Students holding the bachelor degree in Electrical engineering or other related bachelor degree will have to enrol additional courses depending on a difference between their bachelor curriculum and the bachelor curriculum in Electrical engineering and information technology at FER. Additional courses will be defined individually for each applicant by the Admission Committee.
