May 14 @ 12:00 – 13:00

Presented by IEEE MTT-S Distinguished Microwave Lecturer (DML) Talks:

Transceiver Architectures for Beyond-5G: Challenges and R&D Opportunities, co-organized with SSC-S

By
Dr. Payam Heydari
University of California, Irvine

Date: Thursday, May 14 , 2020

Time: 12:00 PM – 1 PM

Abstract:

The ongoing super-linear growth of world’s population coupled with the worldwide access to internet and the general public’s tendency to use more bandwidth-intensive applications fuel the urgency to enhance wireless infrastructures so as to meet these demands. Consequently, the wireless R&D is headed towards the inception of “Beyond-5G” (e.g., 6G) technology.  This webinar provides a comprehensive overview of challenges and opportunities in designing beyond-5G transceiver architectures capable of achieving high data rates above and beyond 20 Gbps.

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!

Online Talk: AI in Modern Power and Energy Systems (Part II)
May 27 @ 14:00 – 15:00
Online Talk: AI in Modern Power and Energy Systems (Part II)

This seminar discusses the use of AI in modern power and energy systems, in particular electrical distribution networks.

About this Event

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 a 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.

Key Focus

  • What are modern power systems control and optimization issues?
  • How data-driven techniques can help?
  • What is the state-of-the-art?
  • What is the path forward?

Admission is FREE! Everyone is welcome! Registration is required!

Abstract

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
