Electrical and Computer Engineering

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECpE) contains two focuses. The focus on Electrical Engineering teaches students in the fields of control systems, electromagnetics and non-destructive evaluation, microelectronics, electric power & energy systems, and the like. The Computer Engineering focus teaches in the fields of software systems, embedded systems, networking, information security, computer architecture, etc.

History
The Department of Electrical Engineering was formed in 1909 from the division of the Department of Physics and Electrical Engineering. In 1985 its name changed to Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering. In 1995 it became the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Abstract

This dissertation proposes and implements a long-term capacity expansion model for the co-optimization of electric and natural gas infrastructures. It allows to determine the required investments in generation units, transmission lines and pipelines for meeting future demands, while representing electricity and natural gas flows using steady state equations. A Mixed Integer Nonlinear Programming problem is developed, from which a linearized version is derived. A twenty six node integrated electric-gas system for the Eastern Region of the United States is used to demonstrate the model's capabilities. Results show that the model provides an accurate operational representation of the integrated system, and therefore, enhances the expansion planning process.
