Next-Generation Power Technology Center of Myongji University does research on Power System and communication technology.
Next-Generation Power Technology Center (NPTC), an Engineering Research Center (ERC) sponsored by the Korean Ministry of Science and Technology and The Korea Science and Engineering Foundation (KOSEF), was established in 2001 with the aim of developing the next-generation protection and automation technology of electrical power systems. This innovative technology, which blends ICT (Information Communication Technology) and AI (Artificial Intelligence) with conventional power technology, is expected to play a key role in every aspect of power systems in a near future. The recent large-scale blackouts around the world have proved the significance of developing new protection and control technology for the new power industry environment. Consequently, many world-leading companies and research institutes are concentrating their efforts on developing the next-generation power technology. NPTC is expected to be a world-leading research institute dedicated to the protection and SAS (station automation system) technology in a near future. The goal of NPTC is technological innovation, which would contribute to more reliable and secure power system in not only Republic of Korea but also the other parts of the world and more convenient human life eventually.
