Electrical Engineering is a discipline of engineering that utilizes natural resources for generation, transmission and utilization of electric power. In addition, electrical engineering deals with design, analysis, prototyping, manufacturing, and maintenance of electrical generators, electric motors, transformers, transmission and distribution equipment, wiring and lighting and electrical appliances. In the recent past, the use of electronics for control of electrical systems is gaining importance and the discipline is known as Electrical and Electronic Engineering instead of pure Electrical Engineering. It is one of the oldest and broadest engineering disciplines. The present day electrical engineers focus on use of renewable sources like solar photovoltaic, wind and other non-renewable energy sources for power generation.
Electricity became a subject of scientific interest in the late 17th century. Probably the greatest discovery with respect to power engineering came from Michael Faraday who in 1831 discovered that a change in magnetic flux induces an electromotive force in a loop of wire—a principle known as electromagnetic induction that helps explain how generators and transformers work. In 1881, using two waterwheels electricity was produced in the world's first power station at Godalming in England. Thomas Edison produced continuous power using steam power in 1882. At present, electric power is being produced using Thermal, Hydro, Solar, Wind and many other non-renewable and renewable energy sources and at present world’s installed capacity of electric power is 16000 GW.
India has one National Grid with an installed capacity of 344.00 GW as on 31 May 2018 out of which 69.02 GW is from renewable energy sources. India's being very active in renewable energy sector would like to achieve an installed total capacity of 175 GW by 31 March 2022, and the central Govt. has set up US$350 million fund to finance the solar projects.
Overall employment of electrical and electronics engineers is projected to grow 7 percent over the next ten years, about as fast as the average for all occupations. At present, the world power sector is facing global warming crisis due to large scale emission of carbon dioxide from thermal power plants. The future is about production of electrical power that is free from production of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas responsible for global warming. Thus there is a demand for electrical and electronic engineers who could play key roles in new developments with solar arrays, semiconductors, and wind power technologies. The need to upgrade the nation's power grids will also create demand for electrical engineering services.
The School of Electrical and Electronics Engineering at REVA UNIVERSITY offers B.
