Welcome to Chair SSEC

Jan, 2014By SSEC


The Chair on Systems Science and the Energy Challenge (SSEC) is shared between Ecole Centrale Paris (ECP), and Supelec, with the support of the European Foundation for New Energy of Electricite’ De France (EDF). Ecole Centrale Paris (ECP) and SUPELEC are two of the top five French engineering schools (“Grandes Ecoles”). They recruit students with excellent analytical skills through a national competition, after two years of intensive training in Fundamental Science (maths, physics…). They deliver engineering degrees at the Master of Science and PhD levels. ECP and Supelec share a strong record in terms of academic research and have strong connection with industry. The Chair activities have focused on the development, implementation and use of computational models, methods and algorithms for the analysis of the failure behavior of complex energy systems and the related uncertainty. Then, the research topics of interest for the Chair cover aspects related to reliability, availability and maintainability (RAM) engineering, risk assessment, safety and security evaluation, vulnerability analysis.
