Nowadays, the Korean government is making a progress of POWER SYSTEM RESTRUCTURING which is one of the most important movements in the overall industry of Korea. Briefly speaking of the concept of POWER SYSTEM RESTRUCTURING, it can improve the efficiency of power supply to increase the customers' benefits and enhance the competitive power of nation because competition and privatization are incorporated into POWER INDUSTRY.
We are conducting our research on all kinds of problems which can be brought about due to POWER SYSTEM RESTRUCTURING, especially focus on the design, control and operation for reliable and efficient power supply.
