Includes circuit interruption, fault-current limiting, pulsed-power and high-power switching, and power conversion; high-voltage electrical insulation and dielectric materials; space power systems; and motors. Control includes studies and research in power electronics, digital circuit design and instrumentation; real-time control; and systems theory, control theory, switching theory, and digital logic design.
For a detailed description of the courses offered to students specializing in Energy Systems please see the attached worksheet:
IIn a collaboration between an EE group and several other departments, an EE graduate student has demonstrated the ability to trap 2.5um diameter polysterene microspheres in a matrix using a single scanning laser beam.>>
EE Faculty are developing a deep sea internet that could lead to improvements in tsunami detection, offshore oil and natural gas exploration, surveillance, pollution monitoring and other activities. >>
