Power Engineering and Energy

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. 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.

Our work encapsulates a wide range of research and development capabilities including: Energy conversion, Energy Resources, Power Electronics, High Voltage Engineering, Smart and micro-grids, Distribution Systems, Power Quality, Renewable Energy, amongst others.
