Pakistan is facing energy crisis since one decade. The solution to come out of energy crisis is not merely energy generation by traditional means, but in an integrated approach such as demand side management, the conservation and efficiency, lighting transformation and energy generation through renewable energy sources.
The electrical energy system engineering courses are designed to cover the subjects of power systems, power electronics and smart grids to impart both theoretical and practical knowledge through high quality applications-oriented postgraduate education/research based on state-of-the-art technological equipment and software associated with power systems, power electronics and smart grids.
The objective will be achieved through several parameters; such as continuing to update specific courses in the program to ensure relevance to the latest industrial changes, supporting the development of appropriate computer facilities, promoting the integration of advanced technology in all courses, and encouraging professional growth and development of the students, engineers and researchers. The program is designed to satisfy the educational needs of the community by providing a climate that fosters self-awareness, personal growth, and a desire for lifelong learning.
Distributed Generation, Smart Grid Technologies (Power and Communication), Renewable Energy System (PV System, Wind Power System etc), HVAC, HVDC, Wide Area Monitoring and Control, Advanced Power System Protection, Power System Stability, Power System Transients Analysis, Power System State Estimation, Blackout Avoidance Strategies, Phasor Measurement Technologies, Joint Time Frequency Analysis.
