The Siberian Energy Institute (SEI) was established in August, 1960
within the Siberian Branch of the USSR Academy of Sciences. The institute owes its creation to the idea of comprehensive energy study and to Academican L. A. Melentiev, a prominent
scientist in the energy field.
The key task of the Institute is comprehensive studies on energy in its broad sense and
the objects of studies and applications are energy and physico-technical systems: fuel and energy complexes of
areas, regions, country and world comprising electric power, heat-,
oil- and gas-supply systems,coal industry, nuclear energy as well
perspective energy technologies and equipment.
The scientific activity of ESI includes
- the theory of creating energy systems, complexes, plants and their
- scientific foundations and mechanisms for
realization of the energy policy of Russia and its regions.
For the past 40 years the known scientific schools have shaped here
in the following directions:
- The Theory and methods of systems studies in the energy sector;
- Study on interrelations between
the economy and energy;
- Scientific and methodological support of energy programs for Russian, its
regions and areas;
- Theory and methods for comprehensive
study and control of reliability and survivability of the fuel and energy complex and energy systems;
- Theory and methods for management and control of electric power system operation and
- Theory of hydraulic circuits and methods for
mathematical modelling and optimization of heat-, oil- and gas-supplying systems;
- Theory and methods of extreme
- Methods for optimization of flow charts and
parameters of thermal power plants;
- Methods for forecasting of natural and climatic processes;
- Mathematical methods for
optimization and numerical analysis and their applications;
- New information-computer technologies in energy.
