UBC Electric Power and Energy Systems Group
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
of the fundamental pillars of our generation’s economic progress,
stability and social wellbeing. In North America,
the demand for electrical energy has been increasing at a rate of 2%
for the past 25 years. These trends are not only limited to North
world wide, the demand for electricity is expected to double in the
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.
