The history of the Institute of Electrodynamics (IED) of NAS of Ukraine associated with the creation in 1939 the Institute of Energy, the main research trends in the field of efficiency and reliability of electric power systems formed the basis of scientific activities of the institute. In 1947 on its basis the Institute of Electrical Engineering was created, which have been renamed in 1963 in the Institute of Electrodynamics of NAS of Ukraine.
In different years, the scientific team of Institute was led by leading scientists: Academicians of USSR V.M. Khrushchev and S.O. Lebedev, Corresponding Members of USSR A.D. Nesterenko and O.M. Milyah, Academician of NAS of Ukraine A.K. Shydlovskyi.
The main scientific directions of the Institute are:
– transformation and stabilization of electromagnetic energy parameters;
– increasing of the efficiency and reliability of electromechanical energy conversion processes;
– analysis, optimization and automation of the regimes of electrical systems and their components;
– information and measuring systems and metrological support in power engineering.
Institute has strong scientific potential. Currently, there are 5 academicians and 7 corresponding members of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, 37 doctors and 101 candidates of sciences, highly qualified engineering personnel working for IED.
IED scientists have received totally 19 national awards, 11 awards of NAS of Ukraine named after G.F. Proskura, S.O. Lebedev and V.M. Khrushchev and 1 prize of Small Academy of Sciences. There are 6 Honoured persons in Science and Technology and 2 Honored Inventors of Ukraine among the scientists of Institute.
Since May 2007 Institute of Electrodynamics of NAS of Ukraine is headed by Academician of NAS of Ukraine Olexandr Kyrylenko.
Formally Institute of Electrodynamics is the part of the Department of Physical-Technical Problems of Power Engineering of National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. Currently Department includes 11 institutes of NAS of Ukraine. Leading scientist in power engineering, Academician of NAS of Ukraine Borys S. Stognii is current head of the Department.
