Electrical Power Engineering Research at KU

An efficient and reliable electric power network is vital to the success of any modern economy. Khalifa University carries out innovative fundamental and applied electrical power research with a particular focus on 'integrated' power networks.

Our research seeks to appreciate how complexity and uncertainty can be accommodated, managed and even planned for in the resilient power networks of the future.
