Abstract

This paper reports on new efforts in the modernization of the basic undergraduate courses and a graduate curriculum in electric power engineering. The main focus of the paper is the modernization of the way power engineering is portrayed to students. The motivation is the recognition of the new deregulated and restructured environment in power engineering and the broadening of the area in general. At the undergraduate level, a multimedia approach is described in which renovation of the curriculum is done in such a way as to allow broadening of the subject material. At the graduate level, new efforts in power electronics and electric power quality are described. The implementations of changes as those reported here were made at several universities including Arizona State University.
