UBC Electric Power and Energy Systems Group

The Electric Power and Energy Systems Group at The University of British Columbia is dedicated to enhancing the understanding of the control, production, transmission and consumption of electrical energy by developing models, electronic devices and software for faster and more accurate analysis of electromagnetic transients, rotating machines, distributed generation and advanced power electronic devices.

Electricity is considered by some as one of the fundamental pillars of our generation’s economic progress, political stability and social wellbeing. In North America, the demand for electrical energy has been increasing at a rate of 2% per year for the past 25 years. These trends are not only limited to North America; world wide, the demand for electricity is expected to double in the next 20 years. The result of this incredible electrical demand is that the North American electrical power system has been predicted to exceed the generation capacity within the next 5 to 15 years. Innovative research in this field will ensure that there is a continual, reliable and secure supply of electricity for future generations to come.

The Professors and instructors of the UBC Electric Power and Energy Systems Group are: Dr. J. Martí, Dr. W. Dunford, Dr. J. Jatskevich, Dr. L.Linares and Dr. H.Dommel.
