IEEE WIE Ottawa at REV UP: an Interactive Day of Insight and Inspiration for Women-Identified Prospective Engineering and IT Students
Feb 8 @ 09:30 – 14:30
IEEE WIE Ottawa at REV UP: an Interactive Day of Insight and Inspiration for Women-Identified Prospective Engineering and IT Students

This event is designed for women and femme-identified folks
who are interested in pursuing engineering and IT at Carleton
University! In teams, you will be paired up with our women-identified
student ambassadors for specialty tours, insights
and activities. Who better to hear from than those who have experienced
it all? Plus, we’re holding an informative panel discussion with
talented women in engineering and IT – students and alumnae – who have
excelled in STEM. IEEE WIE Ottawa will be hosting
an expo booth there!

This event includes a free lunch and free on-campus parking.

AI in Modern Power and Energy Systems @ Room 4359, Mackenzie Building
Mar 4 @ 18:00 – 19:30

Driven by global environmental emission issues and tighter requirements for system resilience and reliability, electricity production is shifting from a centralized paradigm to a decentralized one. In this context, renewable energy sources (RES) and electric vehicles (EVs) have proliferated over the past decade, exhibiting a steadily increasing trend. Thus, today, a large number of wind turbines, photovoltaic (PV) panels, and EVs are connected to medium- (1-69 kV) and low-voltage (=1 kV) grids, with traditional integrated bulk power systems becoming decentralized in the presence of active distribution networks, where the flow of power is bidirectional between generators and “prosumers”. Such systems are typified by high penetration of metering infrastructures, generating a large volume of data, providing the opportunity to harness the power of big data using data-driven techniques.

This seminar discusses the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in modern power and energy systems, in particular electrical distribution networks. Real-world examples of the use of AI for energy storage systems optimization and control will be provided and discussed.

BIOGRAPHY:

Dr. Mostafa Farrokhabadi

Dr. Mostafa Farrokhabadi is the Senior Director of Technology at BluWave-ai. Concurrently, he serves as Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid. He has more than 8 years of experience in designing mission-critical grid solutions for industry and academia, including technical leadership of a $6M international consortium in electric grid modernization, and smart grids projects with Hatch and Canadian Solar. Mostafa has (co)authored several articles in high-impact journals, conference proceedings, and magazines, and holds patents on intelligent control and optimization of renewable-penetrated grids. Mostafa has also led the award-winning IEEE Power and Energy Society Task Force on microgrid stability, an international coalition of 21 researchers from 14 institutions investigating stability issues in microgrids. Mostafa obtained his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Waterloo. He has also studied and performed research in Sweden at KTH and Germany at KIT. During the course of his career, Mostafa has received multiple business, research, and teaching awards, including the prestigious University of Waterloo Doctoral Thesis Completion Award and Ottawa’s Forty Under 40.

11 Annual IEEE WIE Wine and Cheese
Mar 5 @ 17:30 – 21:00
11 Annual IEEE WIE Wine and Cheese

A fantastic opportunity for the Ottawa STEM
community to unlock leadership through diversity and network with like
minded people.

About this Event

Looking to make meaningful connections within your community? Well, look no further.

Introducing IEEE Women in Engineering 11th annual Wine and
Cheese. A fantastic opportunity for professionals to practice their
networking skills and build a network with students and academia from
the Ottawa community.

With an evening filled of interesting speakers, ice-breakers, and
of course wine and cheese (and other foods!), there’s no better time
and place to start networking!

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

With this year’s theme being “Unlocking Leadership Through
Diversity”, we are showcasing amazing leaders in our community and
putting our focus on how their diversity has moved industry and academia
forward. We believe that the creativity and intellect of all members of
society – regardless of gender, background, etc., are essential to
accelerate progress towards a sustainable future with innovative
technology.
