Department of Renewable Energy and Transport Electrical Systems and Complexes (RETESC)

The department prepares bachelors, specialists and masters in specialty 141 "Electric power engineering, electrical engineering and electromechanics" (specialization "Electrical systems and complexes of vehicles").
              The department conducts training of scientific personnel of higher qualification through post-graduate and doctoral studies within the framework of the scientific school of the honored scientist and technician of Ukraine, academician of the National Academy of Pedagogical Sciences of Ukraine, Doctor of Technical Sciences, professor Borys Mokin .

The scientists of the department have considerable experience in the research of electric transport and wind power systems. The main advantage of scientific research of transport electric systems is the complex approach: modeling, optimization, diagnostics (including thermal imaging). Modern wind power plants, which are created and patented by the inventors of the department, received approval from the leading experts of Ukraine in the field of wind energy and have long become the "business card" of the educational building №4 VNTU, where the Faculty of Electricity and Electromechanics is located.                Highly-skilled teachers of our department teach students to design, simulate and optimize both the simplest control systems of electric drives and elements of more complex systems of control of transport electric systems and complexes, such as the electric control system of the tram, trolleybus, electric locomotive, etc.
             The department has a powerful material base with laboratories equipped with a modern element base in combination with computer equipment, lecture halls and auditoriums, premises for creative work. This combination with theoretical knowledge provides students with the improvement of their professional skills and involvement in scientific activities. The laboratories of the department of VETESK are constantly updated in the pace of scientific and technological progress. Thanks to long-term cooperation with foreign partners, at the department (together with the department of EMSAPT), a laboratory based on the equipment of the firm "SIEMENS" for the construction of electric drives and process automation systems and a laboratory based on the equipment of the company "SCHNEIDER ELECTRIC". Also, a traction electric drive laboratory was created on the basis of the Vinnytsia Tramway and Trolleybus Administration Public Utility Company.              The department conducts training of scientific personnel of higher qualification through post-graduate and doctoral studies within the framework of the School of Honored Worker of Science and Technology of Ukraine, Academician of the National Academy of Pedagogical Sciences of Ukraine, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Borys Mokin.
