PhD's Program “Electrotechnology in metallurgy”

technological equipment for metallurgical purposes, from an engineering stage to equipment commissioning at non-ferrous smelters of Eastern Siberia and Krasnoyarsk Territory. During the engineering stage, we use mathematical and physical simulation introducing dimensionless variables. The simulation is conducted using unique experimental facilities. Successful experience of Krasnoyarsk engineering companies is used during engineering, manufacturing and commissioning of electrotechnological equipment.
