EE2029 - Introduction to Electrical Energy Systems

Course Syllabus:

This module covers the fundamental principles of modern electrical energy systems, including three-phase analysis, electric generators, electric loads, and power electronic converters. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to analyse, model, and predict the performance of energy systems and devices including single-phase and three-phase systems, transformers, and various types of generators. Students will also learn how different components in a power system co-operate and affect each other. Past and current practices, as well as trends in the operation of modern power systems will be covered.

The module is designed specifically to help students develop a broad systems perspective and an understanding of the principal elements of electrical energy systems. The expectation is that students completing the module will be able to handle adequately the electrical aspects of a broad range of application topics. This module serves as the foundation for higher-level topics in power engineering. Furthermore, and most important, students will impart the necessary skills to solve real-life complex problems.

EE5702 - Advanced Power Systems Analysis

This module for M.Sc. and Ph.D. students aspiring to specialize in power engineering, provides a comprehensive view of modern power system operations. Students are made aware of the latest industry problems and adept at synthesizing new information to solve them. The lecture materials detail state-of-the-art topics including synchrophasor, linear state estimator, and stability of inverter-based resources. Real-life case studies supplemented with theoretical explanations are utilized to develop students’ critical thinking and advanced analytical skills. 


The objective is to equip students with the latest knowledge and tools for their daily research or work. This module also caters to part-time students working in power-related industries, and contributes to the Professional Engineer certification in Singapore. As part of the SkillsFuture Initiative by the Singaporean government, a modified and version entitled, EE5040–Power Flow Modelling and Optimization is offered at the School of Continuing and Lifelong Education (SCALE), NUS. The contents are tailored for full-time industry professionals.

Synthetic Biology - iGEM Competition

Synthetic biology is an interdisciplinary branch of biology and engineering. The aim is to systematically engineer genetic circuits to manipulate life, programming/controlling organisms to perform any desired task. Research demands contemporary gene synthesis technology and advanced biotechnological techniques to build living systems—often by using skills attained by training in many fields.

The International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition is a worldwide synthetic biology competition involving high school students, undergraduate students, and graduate researchers. PEng Lab has been supervising and training undergraduate students to compete at iGEM since 2017. Outcomes of our undergraduate students can be viewed at the following links: 20212019, 2018, and 2017. In particular, our team won Best Manufacturing Project, Best New Part Collection, and Best Wiki in 2021. We also came Second in the Undergraduate Grand Prize.
