The Power and Energy Systems Group is part of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The area includes seven full-time faculty, two emeritus professors, two research engineers, five postdoctoral research associates, and thirty-six graduate research assistants throughout the year—all have substantial interaction with other groups.

Facilities include an electric machinery and two state-of-the-art advanced power applications laboratories used for both research and curriculum purposes and a computer software lab equipped with PCs. The power faculty offers approximately twelve courses at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, covering electromechanics, power electronics, and power systems.

Thanks to the Future Energy Challenge program, which promotes interdisciplinary student involvement in important current energy topics, as well as participation in the Solar Decathlon.

The Power and Energy Systems Area at the University of Illinois is a leading participant in the national Power Systems Engineering Research Center (PSERC) as well as home to the Grainger Center for Electric Machinery and Electromechanics, a collaborative network of universities dedicated to electric machines and power electronics.
