The institute was established on the ba- sis of Research Institute of electrodynamics and Research Institute of Energy and Communications to concentrate and to optimize research projects. It was establi- shed to implement the fundamental and exploratory researches, to accomplish ex- perimental works, to create and to pro- duce new equipment for electric power systems of the Kyrgyz Republic. Institute work is closely connected with training process.
Science labs successfully work in the Institute. New models of equipment are created. The process of creation includes the following steps: prototyping, creating a mock-up and sketch (technical) project; working out a complete set of working technical documentation; manufacturing of prototype and full complex tests\’ conducting.
Laboratories of Power Engineering Faculty are used to fulfill scientific research and experimental work of the Institute. Research results are implemented in the energy sector, and are used as standards and guidelines for the design and operation of energy facilities.
Scientific research Institute of Power engineering has close scientific relation ships with the Almaty Institute of PowerEngineering and Telecommunications, and the Moscow Power Institute.
