Department profile

Due to the ineffectiveness and inneficiency of electrical energy production, allocation, and utilization as well as a general lack of natural energy resources, the need for intelligent management systems for this energy is simply unavoidable. Fortunately, with the help of IT resources, supplying energy or even providing electrical energy from a vast array of energy resources (i.e. renewable energy resources) becomes not only more effective, but also less costly even when integrated with an assortment of different sources while at the same time ensuring high quality energy. Ideas such as these require studies implemented through interdisciplinary research and are reflected in the work done by the Electrical Machines department (Katedra Energoelektroniki i Automatyki Systemów Przetwarzania Energi) which constitutes diverse laboratories that seamlessly work together to satisfy almost any research demands and provide the most essential teaching tools. This body of intelligent management systems of energy resources is known as Smart Grid and is comprised of the following:

Industrial Electronics - aside from the quality of energy supplied, these studies also concentrate on the form in which electrical energy is processed and utilized. Current standards aim to reduce the flow of negative energy on the receiving end of today's power engineering devices. One way of reducing this emission is constructing a system layout that can be identified as an electricl resistance overload with the form of its electricity being almost sinusoidal. This is especially important in places where electromagnetic configurations are scrambled for example metallurgy plants or extraction sites. Industrial electronics also includes layouts that are engineered to reduce interference known as "custom power" as well as power engineering layouts built for electric and electrothermal propulsion.

Electrical Machines - deals with the research of advanced analytical and optimizational tools (artificial intelligence included) in the planning, building, and utilization of electrical machines for propulsion or generation of energy. The long term goal being energy efficient machines with energy saving configurations that can minimize angular frequency among other obstacles.

High Quality Electrical Energy Supply - more and more frequently energy customers, suppliers, and producers are feeling the toll of the insufficient quality of energy or worse yet, the degradation of that energy under their direct supervision. A wealth of training and knowledge therefore is required by everyone including the producer, supplier, and even the customer. Failure to understand this importance in effect drives energy costs up creating a ripple effect that strains government budgets, encumbers energy firms, and hurts the ordinary citizen. This field also focuses on building efficient equipment infrastructures, designing smart metering software, and monitoring tools all intended to make high quality energy supply possible.

Multiple Energy Sources and Reserves - research focuses on power engineering interfaces interconnecting sources of energy, mainly photovoltaic through a supply network. While transmitting the applied energy from the source to a network or any other receiver the quality of voltage especially at the point of connection can be improved. The research touches on rotating energy reserves.

Automated Buildings - research focuses on highly advanced buildings with equipped with an intricate system of detectors and sensors along with a single central management system handling all installations within the building. Using the feedback from the system, these automated buildings can adapt to changes within the structure and outside of it. Maximizing functionality, comfort, and security while keeping exploitation and modernization costs down are just some of the possibilities.
