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. Selected students will have an opportunity to participate in leading EU-funded research projects during their studies.
