Proposed is the curriculum of PhD Electrical Energy System Engineering to be offered by USPCASE (UET)

Rationale for the New Curriculum: It's a harsh reality that Pakistan power system, ranging from production, transmission, distribution and management has many shortcomings. Moreover less work has been done on integrating alternate energy resources with the conventional system. This specialized energy program will specifically work on how to improve the efficiencies of existing power plants and in helping the integration of various energy sources into and rehabilitation of the present transmission and distribution system. The taught courses will help students in understanding Power Systems and High Voltage Plant Technology, Distributed Generation, System Design and Regulation, Power System Control and Protection, Alternative Energy Systems, Power Quality, Smart Metering, Smart grids and Active Network Devices, and Power Electronics.

Admission into the Program

Dr. Muhammad Shoaib Khalid

Course Objectives: Main objectives of this course include:

· Understand the energy system status quo

· Understand the energy industry conceptually as a constrained system

· Be familiar with the entire palate of emerging energy alternatives, including specifically how and where they will need to compete to in the existing market.

This course focuses on the market structures that exist within the electric energy industry. The course will provide a background on basic economic theory that is necessary to understand operational objectives, pricing and incentives, market power, etc. We will discuss the history of the electric power industry, regulation, and deregulation. We will discuss dispatch optimization problems that exist in the electric industry, approaches to solving these problems, and the corresponding markets. We will discuss different pricing methods, non-convex markets, uplift payments, etc. The final part of this class will deal with a discussion on current research problems in this field.

Dr. Muhammad Shoaib Khalid

Course Objectives: Main objectives of this course include:

· Understand the in-depth interdisciplinary perspective of electric power systems, with regulation providing the link among the engineering, economic, legal and environmental viewpoints.

· Generation dispatch, demand response, optimal network flows, risk allocation, reliability of service, renewable energy sources, ancillary services, tariff design, distributed generation, rural electrification, environmental impacts and strategic sustainability issues will be among the topics addressed under both traditional and competitive regulatory frameworks.

The course presents an in-depth interdisciplinary perspective of electric power systems, with regulation providing the link among the engineering, economic, legal and environmental viewpoints. Generation dispatch, demand response, optimal network flows, risk allocation, reliability of service, renewable energy sources, ancillary services, tariff design, distributed generation, rural electrification, environmental impacts and strategic sustainability issues will be among the topics addressed under both traditional and competitive regulatory frameworks.

The course will make available the engineering, economic and legal basis to critically evaluate the regulatory instruments that are used worldwide for electricity supply activities that are performed as regulated monopolies or under competitive conditions. Most of these regulatory approaches are also of application in other industrial sectors.

The knowledge acquired in the course will provide the comprehensive understanding of electric power systems that will be needed for research in this field, as well as for future professional activities in the energy sector, whether in industry, government or consulting.
