ELECTRICAL POWER ENGINEERING PROGRAM (EPE)

ELECTRICAL POWER ENGINEERING PROGRAM (EPE)

The electrical power engineering encompasses the generation, distribution and control of electric power. Power systems include electromechanical transducers, motors, generators and transformers. Key technical challenges are the stability of power systems, possible new sources of power (e.g., solar, wind and geothermal energy) and emerging technologies such as magnetically levitated trains and the use of high-temperature superconductors in electrical machinery.

Specialization outcomes

  1. Design and supervise the construction of systems to generate, transmit, control and use electrical energy.
  2. Design and develop heavy equipment, such as generators, motors, transmission lines and distributing systems.
  3. Plan and manage engineering activity during the diverse phases of electric power generation, transmission and control.
  4. Prepare and reviews simple sketches, specifications and data sheets for electric power generation, control and distribution systems.
  5. Perform design reviews and checks for electric power generation and distribution systems. Perform review of supplier documentation for compliance with specifications.
