Institute (former «the Azerbaijan Scientific Research Power
Azerbaijan Scientific-Research Power Institute has been organized on
the basis of created in 1933 year in a city of Baku, Sector of Power
of the Azerbaijan branch of Academy Sciences of the USSR.
Activity Sector of Power was
conducted in following directions:
* studying of hydropower resources of republic and working out of
methods of their effective utilization in a power supply system;
* research of special modes of a power supply system and working out
of methods of their calculation;
* the decision of problems of automation and power support of a
* thermodynamics research quasiideal gases, oil carbohydrates and
the generalized equations of a condition of their fractions.
In 1941 year the Power Sector has been transformed by the decision
of Ministerial council of the USSR to the Azerbaijan
Scientific-Research Power Institute of Academy Sciences of
At this time research works by an estimation hydro-and
windenergetics resources and to their effective utilization,
studying of structure of a power supply system and its communication
with power supply systems of Southern - Caucasian republics and
under the decision of problems of power support of a petroleum
industry were spent. The further researches have been connected with
building of powerful power stations and the electric mains which
necessity was defined by creation of large industrial centers and
actual problems of development of a power supply system of
In 1963 year the Power Institute has been placed under the authority
the Department of Energy and Electrification of the USSR and renamed
into the Azerbaijan Scientific-Research Power Institute named
The scientific subjects of Institute during this period were defined
by branch scientific programs and all-union bodies of the Government
of the USSR. Researches were spent in following directions:
* working out of fuel and energy balance and development on its
basis of priority branches of a national economy (the industry,
agriculture, household services etc.);
* application of electronic computers and new methods, management of
complex modes of power supply systems on the basis of modern methods
* creation of devices and information-measuring systems on the basis
of new electrochemical principles;
* thermophysical researches and research of heat exchange of steam

* working out of methods of increase in reliability of the power
equipment on the basis of new methods of restriction of currents of
* working out of effective protective systems of high-voltage
transmission lines from a lightning;
* researches on environment protection;
* use of sources of renewed energy (a wind power and geothermal
* Working out of effective protection of environment from influences
of high-voltage electric lines.
After disintegration of the USSR and
finding of independence by the Azerbaijan republic (1992 year) AzSR&DPPEI
began to function as the independent scientific organization. The
basic directions of scientific researches spent now are defined by a
problem of support of a production efficiency and energy
consumption, economic and technical problems of development and
functioning of electro power branch of the Azerbaijan Republic.
Division «Designing of power stations» (earlier -
Institute “BakuHydroProjects” has been created in July of 1945 year
by the decision of the National Commissariat of power stations of
the USSR for working out of design-budget documents in connection
with renewal of building of Mingachaur hydroelectric station.
Being unique in region research-and-production structure in the
field of electric power industry, the Institute has saved up a wide
experience in this sphere also has strengthened the numbers skilled
experts that has allowed to extend sphere of the activity for limits
of republic and to make working out of complex projects of
hydroknots for a number of the countries.
On the basis of the projects developed at Institute, in Azerbaijan
hydroelectric stations (HYDROELECTRIC POWER STATION) have been
constructed and placed in operation: Mingachaur, Varvara, Shamkir,
Tartar, Yenikand, together with Iran - hydroknots Araz and Mil-Mugan,
and also main channel Mugan and HYDROELECTRIC POWER STATION in Iran,
Chir-Yuurd №1 and №2, Chirkay and Ergebil, Thak-Ba and the
HYDROELECTRIC POWER STATION Hoa-bin - in Vietnam, etc. Listed
powerful hydroconstructions and doing today the leading part in
economy of these countries.
At institute “BakuHydroProjects”, except aforementioned complex
projects of hydroknots, some schemes have been developed.
Among them - «Energetics part» «Head scheme of protection and use
of water resources of Azerbaijan», «Schemes of complex use of an
average part of the river the Kur», «Schemes of use of water
resources of the river Sulak», «Schemes of use of water stocks of
the river Araz», «Schemes of placing of hydrostorage and
hydroelectric stations in republic Azerbaijan», «Schemes of
protection and complex use of water resources of sources of the
river the Kur», etc.
For the purpose of definition of the objects which building is
necessary in Azerbaijan first of all, including for support of use
of potential of small energetics, experts of Institute develop
projects: «the Technically-economically motivies on the basic
directions of development of small energetics» and «the Program of
development of water-power engineering in the Azerbaijan republic».
In first half 80-s' of the last century the Institute had been
executed contract designs of hydroknots Hudafarin and Giz-Galasi
which should be constructed on the river Araz according to the
project «Scheme of complex use of water resources of the river Araz».
These projects have been considered and confirmed by the official
organizations of the former Union and Islamic Republic Iran.
Now employees of Institute, according to the making in 1992 year
with IIR the bilaterial contract, work over sketches of the
hydraulic engineering equipment for water resources Hudafarin and
Giz-Galasi - the rivers Araz in territory of Iran.
In 1990-2004th years at institute "Бакугидропроект" projects of
hydroknots as in territory of Azerbaijan (Tovuz, Mil, Vaykhur,
Arpachay, Ordubad), and in other countries (in Lithuania - Kaysador,
in Moroco - Kudial-El Porpha) have been developed and handed
successfully over the customer. For republic Vietnam the project of
modernisation of the equipment of hydroelectric stations Thak-Ba has
been developed and in due time put in operation.
Experts of institute “BakuHydroProjects” in the contract with
Corporation «Ardabil Regional Water Economy of East Azerbaijan of
Islamic Republic Iran» throughout 10 years work on hydroknots of
irrigational appointment under construction there: (Nakhand, Param,
Ushtula, Akhar, Yamchi, Asabshir, Vaniyar, Tadj-Yar, on channels
Jamchi №1 and №2), a water dam on a site of Tabriz Agriport, and
also perform geologic-prospecting works on dams Hurramdarag, Merkid,
Now cooperation of institute with foreign countries proceeds. From
1995 year in the city of Tabriz institute “BakuHydroProjects”
permanent mission works.
In 1999 year employees of institute together with firm of
Switzerland «ABB Poner Generation Ltd.» (Baden) have developed the
project of technical modernisation physically and the obsolete
equipment of the Baku thermal power station-1. The project of 1st
