General information

 The department dates back to 1961, when the Department of Electrical Engineering was organized at the Kazakh Chemical Technology Institute. The department was general educational and conducted classes in the disciplines "Electrical Engineering" for students of technological specialties.

In 1994, documents were prepared and the specialty "Electric drive and automation of technological complexes" was opened. In the same year the department recruited students for the specialty "Electric drive and automation of technological complexes". Associate Professor Smogorzhevsky V.U. was appointed as the head of the department. The department was general educational and conducted classes in the discipline "Electrical Engineering" for students of technological specialties.

In 1979, the head of the department was appointed candidate of technical sciences, assistant professor Ilyasov RM, who was at the head of the department until 1990.

In 2006, the decision of the SKSU Council resulted in the establishment of the Department of Electrical Power Engineering. The department trained students and undergraduates in the specialty "Power Engineering". The teaching staff of the department engaged in scientific research in the field of power conversion technology, electric drive, and electrical technologies. The head of the department is Associate Professor Romanenko A.F.

The teaching staff of the department was engaged in scientific research in the field of power conversion technology of electric drive, electrotechnology.

 Since the first issue in 1999 to the present time the department has trained more than 1000 specialists - power engineers of the highest qualification.

In 2010, the Rector's order was renamed the department. The new name of the department "Energy and non-traditional energy systems" is associated with the opening of one more specialty - "Heat power engineering", as well as the development of the scientific direction of non-traditional and renewable energy. In the 2013-2014 academic year, the first graduates of the bachelors degree in specialty 5В071700 "Heat power engineering" took place.

The  scientific life

Scientific activity of teachers of the department in 2017 was carried out within the framework of development of leading scientific cathedral themes:

   1. НИНИ №Б-16-04-01 "Development and research of electrotechnical and electromechanical systems of renewed energy sources".

Phase 1 "Development and study of energy converters in the electrical energy of renewable energy sources" was completed and a report was compiled.

Phase 2 "Development and study of mechanical energy converters in the electrical energy of wind turbines" started work, the report on which was compiled at the end of 2017.

  2.NIIR №B-16-04-02 "Studies of the flow of liquid in the elements of heat and mass transfer devices." Two stages have been investigated for this state budget work.

 Stage 1. Review of scientific and technical literature on the structure of fluid flow in canals of various shapes. Analysis of mathematical descriptions of the distribution of fluid velocity along the cross section of the channel, work is completed, a report is compiled.

Stage 2. Development of a hypothetical physical model of the beginning of the transition of laminar flow to turbulent flow, and its mathematical description, the work continues.

The most significant results of the department's research are collections of articles based on the results of scientific and practical conferences that raise important, urgent problems. Since the beginning of the year, the faculty has prepared and published 38 publications: In journals with impact factor (0.100) - 6, in Republican magazines (VAK) - 1; in collections of scientific works of the international scientific-practical conference-5; "Auezov Readings" - 12; IV International Conference "Industrial Technologies and Engineering", ICITE-2017 - 4. in the proceedings of the 20th Student Scientific Conference on Natural, Technical, Socio-Humanitarian Sciences: "New Developed Kazakhstan - The Purpose of the Youth of the Great Steppe Country" - 7, published 3 educational-methodical manuals, 8 scientific research works are introduced into the educational process.

Research work of students

A student scientific-practical conference is held annually at the level of the Higher School of Information Technology and Energy.

At this conference, students come forward with a research report, which they prepared during the year under the guidance of teachers on the following topics:

 1. New methods for developing alternative energy sources by applying modern energy-saving technologies.

2. Optimization and improvement of energy efficiency in the transmission and  distribution of electrical energy.

A feature of the current conference (2017-2018 academic year) was the creation of a "Model for creating a forced wind flow" students of the group of IP 15-4p. The scientific novelty and practical significance of this model is that the possibility of converting the heat of geothermal sources into an air stream whose energy can be converted into electrical energy is being investigated.
