Department of Power and Control Engineering
History, objectives, vision, and mission
The department of Power and Control Engineering is one of the active research and educational departments at the Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The department of Power and Control Engineering has one faculty member with the rank of associate professor and five faculty members with the rank of assistant professor. It does research activities in different areas such as power systems control and protection, power electronics, dynamic and stability of power systems, new energies, power quality, using power systems, high voltage systems, non-linear systems control, resistant control, and stability analysis and stabilization of dynamic systems. The purpose of establishing this field is to train experienced human resources necessary for universities, industrial centers, and electrical companies. Among other objectives and visions of the mentioned field is to remove the technical problems of the southeast zone of the country within the framework of research and industrial projects. The faculty members of the Department of Power and Control Engineering have joint research projects and students with local and foreign prestigious universities and public and private organizations. The department of Power and Control Engineering at GUAT accepts students in the Ph.D. program in power electrical. Furthermore, it accepts students in a Masters degree program in the majors of electronic power, electric machines, and power systems.
The research and educational areas in each of the majors are precise as follows:
