I. GENERAL INFORMATION
The history of the Department Electrical Power has its beginning in 1959 within technical and engineering section of Physics and Mathematics Faculty of the State University when there was opened the specialty “Electric equipment of industrial enterprises”.
|Heads of the Department|
|EE Department (merged)|
|EPEE Department (merded)|
In the years 1959-1962 at the specialty “Electric equipment of industrial enterprises” were enrolled 50 students annually. Starting with 1962 the contingent of students was divided into two academic groups that later formed the two specialties of the Faculty of Electrotechnics: “Power Supply of Industrial Enterprises” (PSIE) and “Electrical Machinery and Apparatus’ (EMA). In 1963 it was created the Department of specialty “Electric Power Supply” (EPS). The founder – Associate professor Constantin REAZANTEV, a graduate of Tomsk Polytechnic Institute, who headed it until 1964. In the period 1963-1970 at the Department was formed a qualified teaching staff were realized a number of laboratories that served as the model for the Polytechnic Institute.
In 1971 has started the registration to a new specialty – “Electric Systems”. In connection with this from the structure of PSE Department was seconded a group of collaborators who formed the new Department „Electic Systems and Networks” (ESN).
In September 1994 the two departments, EPS and ESN, were merged into the Department Power Engineering.
After the political changes of the years 1989-1991, the Department has made significant efforts to modernize the educational process and the transition to European standards.
Since 2005, the training of specialists is carried out in accordance with the Bologna Process.
From 2006, starts the training of specialists Cycle II (Master) within the MA program „Power Engineering”.
In September 2016 the two departments, Department Power Engineering and Department Theoretic Bases of Electrotechnics, were merged into the Department Electrical Power and Electrical Engineering.
Department successfully fulfilling its fundamental objective of training specialists-electricians in electric systems and networks and electricity supply of enterprises. In the spotlight is the students’ harmonious personality modeling, creativity and their multilateral development. The educational offer is based on a comprehensive curriculum and is provided through student-centered learning activities organized at all cycles of higher education:
- license (4 years the full-time and 5 years – reduced attendance), specialty „Electroenergetica” with two specializations: ESN – Electric Systems and Networks, IE – Industrial Energetics.
- Master (5 years) Masters Program „Power Engineering”
- Doctorate (3 years of the full time and 4 years – reduced attendance).
All educational cycles are adapted to labor market needs, contributing to social development through the provision of well-trained specialists.
Graduates of the specialty ” Power Engineering ” can activate at the enterprises of Electricity Transmission and Distribution Network, in industrial and communal enterprises, in research and design institutions, agencies, associations, companies with various activity fields.
During 1959-2015 the Department prepared 2758 of engineers energeticists who were successfully integrated in the national and international labor market.
II. DIDACTIC-METHODICAL ACTIVITY
Today the didactic-methodical activity is carried out by 27 teachers, including 17 titulars: 1 university professor, 6 associate professors, 4 senior lecturers, 7 university lecturers and 2 assistant university. In those 51 years after the establishment of the Department, the collective has published a great number of monographs, textbooks, guidance books, and other didactic materials necessary for the educational process. Annually at the department meetings take place evaluations of the didactic methodical activity of the staff, to identify the progress and prospects for development.
Permanent is carried out the reevaluation of department disciplines dossiers in order to ensure the continuity in the training of future engineers and elimination of overlaps. It is carried out the publication, edition of didactic materials and their subsequent posting on the UTM e-learning platform for student use.
It is paid a great attention to ensuring the stability of young teachers in order to increase the share of titular university teaching staff by promoting young teachers and their active involvement both, in teaching process and decision making. Currently, at the Department activate 6 young titular teachers (46%).
III. SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH ACTIVITY
The scientific research activity at the Department is conducted through projects and themes contained in research and development center programs with a priority in scientific direction “Modern technologies in the fields of mechanics, electrotechnics and energetics”.
The Department focuses its activity on the following scientific objectives:
- Identify methods and processes of increasing the energy efficiency in electricity networks;
- Forecast of energy consumption in the short term;
- Promoting the concept of implementing the SMART GRID technologies (smart grids);
- Development of mathematical models for electrical network with FACTS devices;
- Estimating the impact of renewable sources on electricity networks;
- Choosing the modality of neutral treatment in electrical distribution networks;
- Determination of energy losses in electric networks of low and medium voltage;
- Static state estimation based on traditional and synchronized phasor measurements;
- The traceability of active and reactive power flows;
- Development of mathematical models and computational algorithms for congestion avoidance and control in electricity transmission networks;
- Estimation of excess voltage in electrical networks of low and medium voltage.
IV. MATERIAL AND TECHNICAL BASE
Department has 16 specialized laboratories endowed with equipment, Devices for measurement, machinery, electrical transformers, stands for laboratory works, other devices and equipment to implement the process of studies and scientific activities. The Department has two computing centers equipped with modern computers.
Development of material and technical base of the department was made from current funding, research grants, sponsorships from economic partners and through stands projections developed within the license and master. There are made further efforts to expand the use of video projection equipment and interactive training for teaching activities.
Department of Power Engineering collaborates with university centers in Romania, France, Belgium, Italy, with enterprises and design and research institutions of the republic – SE “Moldelectrica” ICS, “RED Union Fenosa” JSC, SA “RED Nord”, the Institute of Energy of ASM ICP “Energoproiect” JSC, “Termoenergetica” etc.
