Young Professionals Reception

During the 7th Annual IEEE International Conference on Wireless for Space and Extreme Environments (WISEE 2019)

Wednesday, October 16th from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Sidedoor Restaurant

18b York St, Ottawa, ON K1N 5T5

IEEE Ottawa Young Professionals (YPs) and IEEE WiSEE’2019 Organizing Committee invite all YPs in Ottawa and those attending the 2019 IEEE WiSEE Conference to join the Young Professionals Reception on Wednesday, October 16th, 2019 from 6:00 – 8:00 PM taking place at Sidedoor restaurant at 18b York St, Ottawa, K1N 5T5. Come ready to meet WiSEE Keynote Speakers, Industry intellects, and other Young Professionals, and learn about the different opportunities available through the IEEE and the Young Professionals Program.

The IEEE Young Professionals Program is aimed at supporting IEEE members at an early stage in their career, up to 15 years after their first degree, by helping them evaluate their career goals, polish their professional image, and create building blocks of a lifelong and diverse professional network.

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.

 

Speaker’s
Bio

Kalyan Sen, a
Fulbright Scholar, is the Chief Technology Officer of Sen Engineering
Solutions, Inc. (
www.sentransformer.com) that specializes in
developing SMART power flow controllers—a functional requirements-based and
cost-effective solution. He
received
BEE,
MSEE, and PhD degrees, all in Electrical Engineering, from Jadavpur University,
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
, IEEE Press and
John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 2009, which is also published in Chinese and Indian
paperback editions. He is the co-inventor of Sen Transformer.
