Electric Power and Energy Systems Engineering Program – An OverviewThursday, September 19th, 2013ASU Electric Power and Energy Systems Program
  • ASU has the one of the largest electric power and energy systems programs in the country today
  • Relative to other universities, we are the most diverse in terms of research expertise, simulation tools, and experimental capabilities
  • ASU’s program is among the top three programs in the nation in research excellence and recognition (has 3 NAE members)
  • Our graduates have an excellent record with employers and also in graduate school
  • Excellent employment opportunities – it is difficult to ‘outsource’ power engineering
  • Students are attracted to power engineering because they like to work on important things – it is NOT ALL THEORYEmployment in Power Engineering
  • With the deregulation of the electric utility industry and the evolution of the smart grid, siting new transmission lines and construction of new power plants has lagged the need for these facilities
  • Within the next decade the electric power industry will, of necessity, engage in large infrastructure development
  • In addition, estimates are that 50% of the utility engineering workforce will retire within 10 years
  • The availability of U.S. trained engineers will be insufficient to meet the needs of the industry
  • Undergrad Power CoursesEEE 360 Energy Systems and Power ElectronicsEEE 460 Nuclear Power EngineeringEEE 463 Electrical Power PlantsEEE 470 Electric Power DevicesEEE 471 Power System AnalysisEEE 472 Power ElectronicsEEE 473 Electrical MachineryEEE 488-489 Senior Design ProjectsConcentration in Electric Power and Energy SystemsRequirements for the concentration are:
  • EEE 360 Energy Systems and Power Electronics (4);
  • At least 9 hours of electrical engineering technical electives in the power and energy area, which may include any combination of the following courses:
  • EEE 46x/47x and approved EEE 498 special topics courses (e.g., Solar Energy, and Power Electronics), and
  • At most one of either IEE 300 or 431;
  • A capstone senior design project (EEE 488 + 489) in the EPES field of study as approved by the EE Associate Chair for Undergraduate Studies.
  • Power Senior Tech Electives
  • What power courses should you take?
  • Three subdivisions of the power technical electives
  • Power generation
  • Transmission & distribution (T&D)
  • Electricity utilization
  • GenerationT&DUtilizationAircraft are mobile power systemsbut at 400 Hz, not 60 Hz(all three power subdivisions)Centralized Power DistributionGeothermalWindSolarTidal Renewable EnergyPower Generation
  • EEE 460 Nuclear Power Engineering
  • Radioactivity and decay. Radiation interactions and dose. Nuclear reaction, fission and fusion theory. Fission reactors, four factor formula, moderation. Nuclear power, TMI, Chernobyl. Nuclear fuel cycle.
  • EEE 463 Electrical Power Plants
  • Generation of electric power using fossil, nuclear and renewable, including solar, geothermal, wind, hydroelectric, biomass and ocean, energy sources. Power plant thermal cycle analysis. Cogeneration and combined cycles. Economics, operations, and design of electric power stations. Energy storage.
  • Things can go wrong, so you must like problem solvingTransmission & Distribution
  • EEE 470 Electric Power Devices
  • Analyzes devices used for short circuit protection, including circuit breakers, relays, and current and voltage transducers. Protection against switching and lightning over voltages. Insulation coordination.
  • EEE 471 Power System Analysis
  • Review of transmission line parameter calculation. Zero sequence impedance, symmetrical components for fault analysis, short circuit calculation, review of power flow analysis, power system stability, and power system control concepts.
  • Electric vehiclesFACTs STATCOMPower Electronics (fast switches)2500V IGBTs.1700V IGBTinsulated gate bipolar transistorsAC/DC and DC/AC Converters used in power supplies and speed drives.Applications include: trains, metros, buses, hybrid vehicles, industrial processes, DC Transmission, electric “Valves” called FACTS (power controllers), and aircraft.Electric Energy Utilization
  • EEE 472 Power Electronics
  • Fundamentals of power electronics, design-oriented analysis of power electronic converters, PSpice based simulations, optional 1-hr laboratory
  • EEE 473 Electrical Machinery
  • Operating principles and modeling of different types of electric machines including DC, brushless DC, induction, permanent magnet and conventional synchronous machines; control aspects of these machines within modern electric drives for applications such as industry automation, energy conservation through variable speed drives, wind generators and electric vehicles.
