Power Engineering

Here in Urmia University, the Electrical Power Engineering Department provides unique access to both research centers and exploratory labs, fostering different aspects of electricity generation, transmission, and distribution systems. Qualified and competent faculty members along with professional staffs are steering the interested students to dig in the cutting-edge technologies and explore the frontiers of knowledge.

In Power Engineering Department, the graduate program mainly deals with Master of Science and Ph.D. careers. A wide range of research studies are thoroughly conveyed to graduate students. However, the main focus is on modern power system operation and control, electromagnetic field analysis on power system apparatus, deregulation and electricity markets, smart grid technologies, power electronics, power quality and custom power devices, high-voltage engineering, and electrical machines design. The graduate students are collaboratively conducting fresh and innovative research studies aiming at devising pertinent models assuring cost-effective and technically-justified solutions. Specifically speaking, the Master and Ph. D. students could freely involve in several research and development tasks including:

  • Bulk Power System Dynamics and Protection;
  • Probabilistic Assessment of Power Systems;
  • FACTS Applications in Power Systems;
  • Power Electronics and Grid-Integrated Renewable Energies;
  • Smart Grids Research Studies;
  • Demand Side and Energy Management Systems.

More importantly, the students could access to the design and fabrication facilities to experimentally validate the proposed schemes. Modern test and measurement setups, such as power electronics laboratory (shown in figures), encourages the students to bridge the gap between the theory and practice. As well, graduate students could be involved in some granted projects, contracted by regional electricity companies, to resolve the running technical issues in industry applications.

Moreover, we are offering beneficial and standard pedagogical process for the undergraduate students who are pursuing the B. Sc. degree in Electrical Power Engineering. Versatile beneficial and standard course topics along with experimental labs are available for mixing the theoretical learnings with practical experiences. Well-equipped Electrical Machines Lab (shown in the figure) and power system analysis and control labs could be named among the several laboratories provided for in-depth learning of undergraduate students.
