The Department of Electric Power Systems was set up at the beginning of the academic year 2005/2006 after the Department of Electrical Engineering had been split into two departments. The activity of the Department for Electric Power Systems consists of scientific and teaching work in the major field of Engineering Sciences, the field of Electrical Engineering, the branch Electric Power System and Electromechanical-Engineering.


The superior professional work of the Department is enhanced with numerous projects in collaboration with the economy. Thereby, collaboration with HEP distribution of Rijeka and HEP Transmission Opatija can be highlighted.
