Scientific school of the Department of Power Systems Automation


Theory, methods and means of power system control

Scientific supervisor of the school: Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Oleksandr Stanislavovych Yandulskiy, Laureate of the State Prize of Ukraine, Dean of FEA, Scientific Supervisor of the Department of Power Systems Automation.

Fundamental and applied scientific school was founded in 1962 by Ph.D., Prof. Y. P. Gizyla – a well-known specialist in the field of relay protection and automation of power systems, head of the Department of Power Systems Automation and doctor of technical sciences., Prof. J. I. Greben – a well-known specialist in the field of automation and telemechanics.

The scientific school’s basis are scientists of the teaching staff of the PSA Department of NTUU “Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute”.

The nature of school research: fundamental, applied.

  • Fundamental research of the school is aimed at developing the theory of modeling, analysis and synthesis of control systems, development of new approaches and methods of construction and creation of tools to improve the efficiency of power systems.
  • Applied research of the school is aimed at improving the functioning quality of the Ukraine UES frequency and power automatic regulation system, the development and implementation of an automated system for collecting information from microprocessor devices, which is designed for collecting and transmitting to the upper levels the discrete and analog information of an electric power facility normal and emergency operating modes.

Over the last 10 years, the school’s scientists have established training centers and laboratories (together with ABB, Siemens, DTEK), which function as part of scientific research, educational process and advanced training. In particular, 3 fundamental state budgetary works were carried out, the results of which were used in the implementation of 135 contractual projects.

Throughout the existence of the school: 5 doctors, 43 PhDs and about 90 masters have been trained; 22 monographs, 30 textbooks and manuals have been published; over 312 research works have been performed, most of them were put into production; about 700 scientific papers have been published in professional journals; over 45 documents on intellectual property rights have been received.

Personal awards have been received: State Prize of Ukraine (Prof. Yandulsky OS, 2010), S M. Khrushchev Prize of the NAS of Ukraine (Prof. Yandulskiy O.S., 2000), Diploma of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine (Prof. Yandulskiy O.S.), 2 Victories in the “Leader of the fuel and energy complex” competition (Prof. Yandulskiy O.S., 2006; Assoc. Prof. Dmytrenko O.O., 2008), the NAS of Ukraine award for young scientists (Assoc. Prof. Stelyuk A.О., 2010), the President of Ukraine Award for young scientists (Nesterko A.B. 2018).

The scientists of the school carry out international cooperation with Otto von Guericke University of Magdeburg (Germany), Hessen University of Applied Sciences (Germany), ABB, Siemens, Alstom, Schneider Electric, PHNIX corporations on the basis of cooperation agreements in the context of increasing the efficiency of electric power systems management. Joint researches and implementations are carried out, the results are discussed at conferences.
