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.

India, Tuskegee University, USA, and Worcester Polytechnic Institute, USA,
respectively. He also received an MBA from Robert Morris University, USA.

 

Dr.
Sen spent more than 30 years in academia and industry and became a Westinghouse
Fellow Engineer. He was a key member of the Flexible Alternating Current
Transmission Systems (FACTS) development team at the Westinghouse Science &
Technology Center in Pittsburgh. He contributed in all aspects (conception,
simulation, design, and commissioning) of FACTS projects at Westinghouse. He
conceived some of the basic concepts in FACTS technology. He has authored or
coauthored more than 25 peer-reviewed publications, 8 issued patents, a book
and 4 book chapters in the areas of FACTS and power electronics. He is the
coauthor of the book titled, Introduction
to FACTS Controllers: Theory, Modeling, and Applications

Clarifying the Path to becoming a Professional Engineer
May 26 @ 12:00 – 14:00
Clarifying the Path to becoming a Professional Engineer

In this time of social distancing, we are pleased to announce that all the team members of IEEE YP and WIE Ottawa Sections are fully committed to providing online interaction and support to our community! In partnership with Professional Engineers Ontario, we present an online talk in “Clarifying the Path to Becoming a Professional Engineer.”

If you are an engineering undergraduate or post-graduate student, or a recent graduate starting out your engineering career, then this seminar might be for you. In it you will learn:

  • What is PEO?
  • What engineering experience is PEO looking for once I graduate?
  • I have international engineering education and experience; how is that evaluated by PEO?
  • How is my engineering experience evaluated by PEO?
  • How do I prepare my Experience Record?
  • What is the PPE?
  • What is the EIT Program and the Student Membership Program?

The emphasis of this webinar will be on the P. Eng. licensure process – what PEO is looking for. The webinar will focus on how engineering experience is evaluated and how you can facilitate the process. Learn the dos and don’ts of preparing your licensing application for evaluation.

To participate, you will require: internet connection to view the webinar, phone access to dial into the conference for audio.

We look forward to speaking with you!

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.
