The centre is organised in four research programs, each managed by a program manager. The research programs are:
- Controllable Power Systems
- IT Applications in Power System Operation & Control
- Maintenance Management
- High Performance Electrical Machines and Drives
A program manager manages and co-ordinates the operational activities within a program. For larger projects within the program separate project managers may be appointed. The program managers report to the centre director with regards to administrative and financial matters, and to the steering committee for the program regarding research results. Projects involving PhD Students in the centre include Professors acting as academic supervisor ensuring the academic quality of the project.
Board of the centre
The Board of the centre has the overall responsibility for the finances and operations of the centre in terms of goal fulfilment and quality of the results. It makes priorities between the four research programs and decides upon the allocation of funds for each program and the overall budget and is responsible for follow up of the budget. The board may change or revise the strategic goals for the centre and also suggest changes in the organisation of the centre. Additionally the board appoints the chairmen and members of the steering committees.
Each research program has a steering committee, which is responsible for the industry participation in the projects and for follow up of the results of the research projects within the programmes The steering committee decides upon the start up of new projects and termination of completed projects. New projects are proposed by the program managers in conjunction with the centre director. The steering committees are formed of industry and university representatives active within the research programs with industry representatives being in majority.
Organisation within KTH
The centre is administratively organised as a separate unit within the School of electrical engineering at KTH. Four divisions within the school are involved in the centre representing different research fields in electrical engineering: electric power systems, industrial information and control systems, electrotechnical design and electric machines and power electronics.
