History of department

The Department of Electricity Supply and Energy Management has gone through several stages:

  • in the year of establishment of the faculty (1948) the department “Application, production and distribution of the electric power in agriculture” was created;
  • on the basis of the department the department “Production and distribution of electric energy in agriculture” was created;
  • later the department was named “Electricity supply of agriculture”;
  • since 2010 in connection with the expansion of the department was named “Power Supply and Energy Management”.

    The first head of the department until 1958 was Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor V. Pliuhachov (1914-1972). He was a specialist in the field of electricity supply to agriculture.
In the period from 1958 to 1974 the department was headed by associate professor, Ph.D. Volodymyr Imshenetskyi, who was a talented practitioner and scientist, the founder of the development and application of complete transformer substations, complete 6-10 kV switchgear, distribution network sectioning devices, automatic reserve input devices. V. Imshenetskyi enjoyed great prestige among specialists in rural electrification. With his direct participation as the head of the department and the dean of the faculty of electrification, the first specializations were opened: “Electricity supply of agriculture” and “Application of electricity in agriculture”.
For a long time he worked at the institute as vice-rector for teaching and research. In 1974, the head of the department was elected Ph.D., Professor Semen Rozhavskyi, who directed the efforts of the staff of the department to the modernization of laboratory equipment and the purchase of computer equipment. Rozhavsky SM was a specialist in the field of optimization of rural networks, he owns a number of developments for the balancing of 0.38 / 0.22 kV networks. New computer-related disciplines have been introduced into the curriculum. Practically, the department was the first department of the faculty, which focused the educational process on the widespread use of computer technology.
During the leadership of the department V. Imshenetskyi and S. Rozhavskyi conducted serious scientific work and work on training scientific personnel. The department performed economic and contractual work for hundreds of thousands of rubles, which gave the opportunity to update the material base of the department, develop scientific work and prepare replenishment of scientists.
In 1981 candidate of Technical Sciences, Associate Professor B. Ilchenko was appointed to the position of the head of the department. He was a graduate of the faculty, a scientist in the field of high voltages.
A characteristic feature of educational and methodical work of this period was the expansion of student training in the direction of automation of production processes based on the use of control computers. Simultaneously with the solution of problems related to the reconstruction and expansion of the educational-laboratory and research base of the department, work was carried out to increase the scientific level of the teaching staff, to expand the scope of economic work.
From 2005 to 2013 the department was headed by a graduate of the department, Ph.D., Professor O. Miroshnyk, scientist in the field of power supply. During this time, a laboratory of modern station equipment was established at the department, classes were organized for students of Faculty of advanced training.
From 2013 to 2016, the department was headed by Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor O. Moroz. During this time, there was a significant update of logistics of the department and improving the quality of educational services. According to the results of the competition in 2014, the department took fourth place among the departments of the university.
Since 2016, the department is headed by Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor O. Miroshnyk. intention to carry out activities on “Inspection of engineering systems of buildings” and “Certification of energy efficiency of buildings”. New laboratory stands have been created/p>
