Accelerating 5G Design Innovation Through Simulation
Dr. Laila Salman
Date: Wednesday, June 10, 2020
Time: 2:30 PM – 4:00 PM
5G connectivity is the next technological revolution. This pervasive, ultrafast compute network will connect billions of devices with data on-demand. It will drive economic expansion in many sectors, spawn new products and services, and transform our lives as we know it. Yet, before 5G can deliver on its promises and quality of service (QoS) metrics, wireless systems designers and engineers must overcome sizable challenges.
Ansys 5G simulation solutions empower these individuals to solve the complexities impeding device, network and data center design. Ansys 5G simulation solutions provide electromagnetics, semiconductor, electronics cooling and mechanical analysis tools to accurately simulate 5G radio and related technologies. The multi-solution platform leverages high-performance computing that can be deployed across the enterprise, allowing designers and engineering experts to collaborate more effectively.
This seminar will highlight the following 5G engineering challenges:
· End User Equipment
o multi-frequency band antenna integration
o modeling of mm-wave array antennas
o RFI, EMI & Desense Mitigation
· Base-Station Antenna Modeling
o Full Communication Analysis in Electrically Large & Complex Environment
o RFI, Data Coverage & ElectroThermal Reliability

IEEE CANADA TECHNOLOGY LEADERSHIP WEBINAR SERIES – III
Speaker: Tom Coughlin of IEEE USA
Topic: IEEE-USA Supports Public Policy For A Better World
IEEE-USA supports public policy and career and member services for IEEE members in the USA. This talk will include a brief discussion on what IEEE-USA does and will focus on its public policy activities to support future technologies, funding of science and technology, immigration policies that support a path to citizenship and support for engineers and technologists. I will also discuss the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic and what what IEEE and IEEE-USA is doing to help its members as well as society as a whole, to recover from this extraordinary event. This talk will include discussion of the future of work and the role of technology to enable remote work and new tools to work together in the real world even when we can’t be there physically.

Title: Josephson Arbitrary Waveform Synthesizer as a Quantum Standard of Voltage and Current Harmonics
Speaker: Dr. Dimitrios Georgakopoulos, Senior Research Scientist, National Measurement Institute, Sydney, Australia
Date/Time: Thursday, July 09, 2020, 6:30 pm – 7:30 p.m. EDT
Abstract: Josephson arbitrary waveform synthesizers (JAWS) are becoming a viable technology for national metrology institutes and industry to establish quantum standards of direct and alternating voltage. At the National Measurement Institute of Australia (NMIA) we have extended the application of the JAWS to provide a standard of both the magnitude and the phase of harmonics in a distorted waveform. Harmonic analysis is critical in a number of industrial applications such as electric power systems, power electronics, characterization of systems and materials and acoustics and vibration. At present, in the calibrations of power analyzers, the traceability of the magnitude of the harmonics is based on ac-dc transfer measurements. However, there is a gap in the traceability of the phase of the harmonics relative to the fundamental. The NMIA calibration system uses a JAWS chip from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), USA, a precision inductive voltage divider and a set of current shunts designed and manufactured by NMIA. For distorted waveforms with harmonic magnitudes from 5% to 40% of the fundamental, the calibration system can measure odd harmonics up to the 39th with magnitude uncertainties better than 0.001 % of the fundamental for voltage (from 0.01 V to 240 V) and current (from 0.005 A to 20 A) waveforms. The best phase uncertainties range from 0.001° to 0.010° (k = 2.0), depending on the harmonic number and harmonic magnitude. We anticipate that the ability of the JAWS to generate distorted waveforms with the lowest possible uncertainty in the magnitude, and phase spectra will make it a unique tool for low-frequency spectrum analysis.

Abstract – With the focus on environmental sustainability and energy security, power system planners are looking at renewable energy as supplements and alternatives. But such generation sources have their own challenges – primarily intermittency. It is expected that the smart grid – due to its inherent communication, sensing and control capabilities – will have the ability to manage the load, storage and generation assets (including renewables) in the power grid to enable a large-scale integration of distributed generation. In a smart grid, information about the state of the grid and its components can be exchanged quickly over long distances and complex networks. It will therefore be possible to have the integration of sustainable energy sources, such as wind, solar, off-shore electricity, etc. for smoother system operation. But in order for this to be possible, the electric utility will have to evolve, and change their ways of operation to become an intelligent provider of these services. This lecture introduces the operational characteristics of renewable energy sources, and various aspects of the smart grid – technology, standards and regulations. It also addresses the interplay among distributed generation, storage and conventional generation to provide an efficient operational strategy in the context of the smart grid.
ADMISSION: Free, but the registration in advance is required.
Abstract – A smart city relies on widely distributed smart devices to monitor the urban environment in real-time, collects information for intelligent decision making, and facilitates various services to improve the quality of urban living. The distributed network of intelligent sensor nodes, as well as data centers/clouds where sensor data are stored and shared, constitutes a smart city infrastructure. Smart cities address urban challenges such as pollution, energy efficiency, security, parking, traffic, transportation, and others by utilizing advanced technologies in data gathering and communications interconnectivity via the Internet. It provides real time and remote monitoring for different aspects of data management in areas such as transportation, communication, video surveillance, and sensors distributed throughout the city. Simultaneously, the Smart City building blocks like education, telemedicine, health care, IT applications, pollution management, etc. can be deployed in the IEEE Smart Village initiative to have a greater impact on the rural population throughout the world. through reliable electricity and internet connectivity.
