The history of the Institute of Electrodynamics (IED) of NAS of Ukraine associated with the creation in 1939 the Institute of Energy, the main research trends in the field of efficiency and reliability of electric power systems formed the basis of scientific activities of the institute. In 1947 on its basis the Institute of Electrical Engineering was created, which have been renamed in 1963 in the Institute of Electrodynamics of NAS of Ukraine.

Formally Institute of Electrodynamics is the part of the Department of Physical-Technical Problems of Power Engineering of National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. Currently Department includes 11 institutes of NAS of Ukraine. Leading scientist in power engineering, Academician of NAS of Ukraine Borys S. Stognii is current head of the Department.

Scientist in the field of power engineering, Academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (1990), Honoured Scientist of Ukraine (2001), State Prize-winner of Ukraine in Science and Technology (1985).

 

The main scientific directions of the Institute are:

– transformation and stabilization of electromagnetic energy parameters;

– increasing of the efficiency and reliability of electromechanical energy conversion processes;

– analysis, optimization and automation of the regimes of electrical systems and their components;

– information and measuring systems and metrological support in power engineering.

Institute has strong scientific potential. Currently, there are 5 academicians and 7 corresponding members of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, 37 doctors and 101 candidates of sciences, highly qualified engineering personnel working for IED.

IED scientists have received totally 19 national awards, 11 awards of NAS of Ukraine named after G.F. Proskura, S.O. Lebedev and V.M. Khrushchev and 1 prize of Small Academy of Sciences. There are 6 Honoured persons in Science and Technology and 2 Honored Inventors of Ukraine among the scientists of Institute.

National Technical University of Ukraine “Kyiv Polytechnic Institute”: www.kpi.ua

Kyiv Polytechnic Institute was founded in 1898 consisting 4 branches: mechanical, agricultural, engineering and chemical. The basis of the system of higher technical education was a combination of deep natural sciences, basic training in physics, mathematics, chemistry and other disciplines with general engineering and obtain professional and practical skills in production and scientific institutions.

With time-based KPI was in 12 universities in many regions of Ukraine, 9 of which have national status today.

Today KPI is the largest technical university of Ukraine research type universities, one of the leading universities in Europe and world. It has about 30,000 students, including foreign students. It consists of 30 teaching and research departments (10 institutes and 20 departments), 8 scientific research centers, 12 research institutes , 14 research centers and 1 design bureau.

One of the first universities in Ukraine "KPI" in September 2003, joined the Commonwealth universities who signed the "Magna Charta of Universities' Europe (" Magna Charta Universitatum").

Developments KPI annually celebrated State Prize of Ukraine in Science and Technology.

In April, 2007 the Board of Education of Ukraine, it was decided to provide KPI research university status, the Charter is approved by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine of 21.11.2007, № 1332. Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine of 03.02.2010 № 76 "KPI" given the status of self-governing (autonomous) research national university.
