Academics

The restructuring and deregulation of electric utilities together with recent progress in new and renewable energy technologies introduce unprecedented challenges and wide scope for power and energy systems research and open up new opportunities to young Power Engineers. Conventional Power system is redefined and power electronic components are incorporated along with the existing system. This includes flexible ac transmission, HVDC links embedded in the conventional ac transmission networks etc. Further, use of renewable energy such as solar and wind power, coupled with higher efficiency and conservation, will be the key factors to a sustainable world for future generations. 

M. Tech. program in Power and Energy Engineering is intended to explore the above mentioned challenges and also initiate research activities. This program provides necessary theoretical background with a good blend of applied mathematics along with in depth coverage in analysis of power and energy systems. The core courses include sustainable, economic, efficient and reliable energy conversion, generation, transmission, distribution, storage and utilization of electric energy, including application of power electronics in power system operation and control.

Duration of the Course: Two years
