History of the department of APEPS

The Department of Automation of Designing of Energy Processes and Systems was established on June 30, 1984 (Order KPI No. 78-1) as part of the Heat and Power Faculty.

The organizer, the main ideologue of the department's establishment and its first head is the doctor of technical sciences, professor, academician of the engineering academy of sciences, winner of the State Prize of Ukraine Vladimir Slipchenko.

The purpose of the establishment of the Apeps Department was to increase the level of computer technology use by students of TEF and to conduct research in the field of simulation of complex dynamic systems. During this period, the department taught such disciplines as "Fundamentals of programming", "Numerical methods in engineering calculations", "Modeling of dynamic objects".

Since 1986, the department of APES has started to train specialists in the field of Information Technology Designing for the heat power industry.

In 1990, the specialty "Software Automation Systems" was opened for a new specialty for Ukraine.

In 1998, the "Computer Environmental and Economic Monitoring" specialty was opened for the first time in Ukraine. 

The core of the pedagogical staff of the department included the faculty of the department of computer engineering in engineering and economic calculations of the Kiev Polytechnic Institute and leading scientists of the scientific laboratory "Automated design of dynamic objects and systems" at the KPI. Significant contribution to the formation of the department and its achievement of high scientific and methodological level made by her veterans, some of whom work as teachers and present: Slipchenko V.G., Medvedeva V.M., Gagarin O.O.

The activity of the department is aimed at the development of the latest information technologies and the training of qualified specialists in the development of automation systems for modeling and designing objects of various physical nature, information analytical systems, as well as expert systems.

НИИ «APRODOS» - science for practice 

The department has a scientific production facility for testing and introducing scientific developments of teachers and students. Such a unit is the Research Institute of Automation of Designing Dynamic Objects and Systems - Research Institute "APRODOS".

Research Institute "APRODOS" is an organizational scientific and structural unit of NTUU "KPI", and originates from the laboratory "APRODOS", created in 1979 at the "Kiev Polytechnic Institute" as a structural subdivision of the department of automation of designing of energy processes and systems ( "APESP»). , Supervised by the doctor of technical sciences, professor Slipchenko VG The laboratory was created to carry out particularly important topics related to the creation of aerospace technology in the USSR.

In 1987, the laboratory "APRODOS" was transformed into a research institute "APRODOS" at the Kiev Polytechnic Institute, the director of which was appointed VGSlipchenko. At this time, the Research Institute "APRODOS" functions as an independent scientific unit at NTUU "KPI". 

From 1978 to 1980 in the institute's laboratory of computer engineering work was carried out on the creation of a package of applications - Complex calculation and optimization of complex systems - a unique tool for mathematical modeling. The authors and program developers were: Assoc. G.M. Elizarenko, Assoc. V.M. Medvedeva, Senior Researcher M. Plyusnov, art. engineer I. Sinitsyn, art. engineer S. Kislenko, art. engineer A. Kutsil, engineer A. Samofalova. This package of applications was intended for automation of numerical analysis processes and parametric optimization of mathematical models of continuous systems with lumped parameters.

From 1979 to 1989 in the Research Laboratory of Automation of Designing Dynamic Objects and KPI Systems together with the Kiev Production Association. Artem has developed a set of MTM programs. (Supervisor - Prof. V.G. Slipchenko, team of performers - Senior Researcher O.A. Datsyuk, Senior Researcher S.O. Lukyanenko, Senior Researcher V.B. Krasnoyarska, Veda engineer A.M. Belentsova.) The complex was intended for circuit design of radio-electronic devices with the help of a computer. The complex was implemented at the enterprises of Kyiv, Gorky, Artemovsk, Voronezh, and Kharkiv. 

"Buran" - software for the space project

From 1979 to 1987, the APRODOS laboratory carried out extensive research and development, together with the Molniya Scientific Production Association (Moscow), which developed the Buran aerospace project, similar to the American Shuttle project and which was successfully completed in 1988 as a launch experiment . The work was aimed at the development and implementation of mathematical methods for simulating the handling of a complex dynamic object, which is a modern multifunctional aircraft (LA), as well as the creation and implementation of algorithms and programs necessary for the preliminary bench system development of design decisions, laid down in the basis of implementation the aircraft. A general and specialized mathematical support was created, 

Such systematic work with a full-size stand was held for the first time in world and domestic practice. The stands simulated work in different flight modes as separate systems of the aircraft, and the entire complex, and also used as simulators for the preparation of pilots. The intelligence of the on-board control complex was that, should unforeseen situations arise, the system must perform certain actions without interference with ground support.

Six professors of the Apeps department - the scientific supervisor of the work of the doctor of technical sciences, professor VG Slipchenko, responsible executor of works, candidate of technical sciences, associate professor G.N. Yelizarenko, Senior Research Fellows, Candidates of Technical Sciences O.O. Gagarina, A.V. Kovaly, A.A. Yasko, Head of the Department of V.R. Senchenko - became the laureates of the State Prize for participating in the program of launching the airship "Buran". 


"SIGRANT" - software system of geometric calculations for the construction of airplanes

From 1979 to 1985, in the laboratory of APRODOS, the development of an automated system of geometric calculations of airborne aircraft circuits (the SIGRANT system) was implemented at the Kyiv Aviation Plant and was used in the design and manufacture of aircraft AN72, AN32, AN200 (RUSLAN), Ан-70 (МRIYA), and also received application on other airlines of the CIS countries. According to the results of these works, 2 monographs, more than 60 scientific articles, published NIAT Technical Recommendations. 

In 1998, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor YI Badayev started the direction of applied geometry and computer graphics. Under his leadership, his students are Assoc. NM Ausheva and associate professor Y.V. Sidorenko conducts fundamental development on computer geometry with the introduction of results in production. 


GRANIT - IT application in environmental topics 

In 2004, in accordance with the Decree of the President of Ukraine from January 17, 1995, the scientific and technical program GRANIT - "Development of scientific and methodical principles of the system of prediction of genetic risk for the introduction of new technologies and pollution of the environment "was completed.

Head of the work of doctor of technical sciences, professor Badayev Y.I. 

In the course of its implementation, methodologies, programs, methodological recommendations for assessing the territorial distribution of risks of cancer and inherited diseases, depending on the radiation burden, the use of therapeutic mineral waters of the Carpathian region and Podillya, the modeling of the distribution of pollutants in the atmosphere and the economic assessment of the costs of neutralizing the negative consequences of pollution of the environment. 

Today the department collects 5 groups of freshmen of full-time forms of education each year and one group on a form of education without leaving the production. Each year the department produces more than 130 specialists and masters.

The purpose of students 'training is to issue such specialists who will be able to perform almost all tasks that require the use of computer technology and the use of information technology, and will be able to adapt to constant changes and improvements in computer technology.

The content of the disciplines, which are read by the teachers of the department, is constantly updated in accordance with the requirements of the present. Together with the leading scientists and under their guidance, the young talented computer professionals work at the department. Modern information systems are taught by experienced professionals from renowned computer firms.
