Modern Day Applications of Power Electronics – Who Can Benefit?
Nov 24 @ 00:46 – 01:46
Modern Day Applications of Power Electronics – Who Can Benefit?

AbstractApplication of power electronics is widespread in everyday
life. Some applications are considered as “nice to have it;” in other cases,
they are essential. This presentation discusses a wide variety of daily-used
applications around the world. Also covered is an advanced topic, such as SMART
Controller that today’s grid requires for voltage regulation, power factor
regulation, unbalance voltage/current regulation, harmonic elimination and so
on. A SMART Controller that is based on functional requirements and
cost-effective solutions is derived from utilizing the best features of all the
technical concepts that are developed until now. Final year students of
electrical engineering undergraduate curriculum, post graduate students,
researchers, academicians and utility engineers will benefit from attending
this course. The participants will hear from an expert who actually designed
and commissioned a few utility-grade SMART controllers since their inception in
the 1990s.

Digital Marketing — Tools and Methodologies

Joint presentation IEEE Ottawa Section Consultants Network and IET Ottawa LN

Not your Grandmother’s Marketing – The impact of SaaS and AI

 Since Google’s arrival on the scene in the late 1990’s,
marketing took a turn to digital, never to look back again.  With the proliferation of technologies such
as Artificial Intelligence, and novel business models like
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), marketing tools and techniques continue to
rapidly evolve.  Our eyes glued to
screens of devices of all sizes, we are at the same time a willing victim and a
reluctant participant in the marketing dance in both our professional and
personal lives.  These combined bring a
huge democratization of marketing for businesses, allowing for successful
growth in the most unlikely locations.

A Novel Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) Technique for Photovoltaic Solar Panels

By

 

Mahdi Ranjbar

DATE:       July 7, 2020

TIME:        18 19:30.

       

A
novel Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) technique for photovoltaic (PV)
solar panels will be presented.  Current
sensors are costly components. They also require a signal conditioning
circuitry to reduce the noise and condition the signal to be sampled and used
by the controller.  Th
is
method takes advantage of the non-linearity of the I-V curve of the solar panel
to
find the MPP
. By injecting high-frequency perturbation signals and
monitoring the system behavior current sensing used for controlling of MPPT
is eliminated. This elimination can reduce the cost of MPPT circuitry. The proposed method also shows a very fast tracking response due to the use of high-frequency signals instead of relying on low frequency and DC signals which are used in the traditional methods. Numerical analysis, simulation results, and experimental results verify the feasibility of the proposed technique will be shown.

 

Mahdi
Tude Ranjbar received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Tehran,
Iran (2017). In this period, his main focus was on collaboration with different laboratories in ECE and Mechanical engineering departments. He started his M.A.Sc degree in 2018 at Queen’s, Canada with a focus on improving the efficiency of the solar system power generation techniques.  Since March 2020, Mr. Ranjbar has joined the System
Architecture group at HUADA Semiconductors where his main focus is designing power applications using Huada’s microcontrollers, gate drivers and current sense amplifiers.
