Electrical Power Engineering is a multidisciplinary field that explores and promotes effective and efficient power generation, transmission, distribution, and utilization, as well as energy management. Sustainable energy and advanced power systems are paramount for the future of human civilization.
European Union has defined high standards for the development of technologies that warrant long-term positive impact on humanity and the environment, including climate neutrality. Through #NextGenerationEU and #EUGreenDeal, the EU has ensured implementation mechanisms to achieve these goals supported by the largest-ever stimulus packet of 750 billion euros. Demand for electrical power engineers is at an all-time high, especially those specializing in "green" energy, energy efficiency, and transition from traditional to modern sustainable energy and power systems.
By studying this programme, 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, and many more.
Research, innovation, and teamwork are crucial in determining the engineering progress and the development of new technologies. The select student will have an opportunity to participate in leading EU-funded research projects during their studies.
Differential courses and recommendations for elective courses during bachelor study
To enroll in the profile of Electrical Power Engineering, students do not need to take the differential courses.
Students are expected to know the material of the courses Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering and Electrical Power Engineering from FER’s bachelor study programme or equivalent courses from other higher education institutions. Students, who were not able to enroll in these courses during their bachelor studies, are advised to independently master selected chapters from these courses in agreement with their mentors so that they can successfully attend classes in our profile subjects.
In addition, we recommend all students to enroll in the courses Power Systems 1 and Power Systems 2 during their undergraduate studies, if possible. This will significantly increase the flexibility of their studies and have greater opportunities to choose elective courses and modules at master level.
