Power Engineering

Power Engineering concerns itself with the production, transmission, distribution, and utilization of electrical power. This includes equipment such as turbines, generators, power lines, transformers, electric motors and electronic devices. Issues such as power economics and power system protection also play a pivotal role within this discipline.

Increasing efficiency of these electrical devices and conduits is an area of study which can lead to reduced electricity need and thus less pollution from fossil-fuel powered plants, and lies at the confluence of electrical and energy engineering.
