Several research topics currently being tackled by researchers in the faculty of engineering fall under this theme. Some specific topics are listed here below.
- Design of active power filter
- Novel design techniques in the construction of steel and composite structures
- Seismic strengthening of existing structures
- Design of water hammer system
Researchers in the Faculty of Engineering show their interest in these topics by conducting research and reporting the outcomes in prestigious international and national journals, magazines, symposia, conferences and meetings. More than 4 publications were reported during the last two years.
One main research direction in this area is the development and implementation of series active filter in the distorted circuit, when there are nonlinear loads or converters like as photocopier machine, faxes, etc. The line current would be distortion free after introducing this filter to meet IEEE standard. The faculty of Engineering through its staff members is planning to invest further in this theme. Among its plans is increase collaborations with national and international companies which will provide financial support to fund research under this theme.
