Speaker:
Mohamed Orabi, VP of Research, Aswan University, Egypt

When: 5:00 PM, November 10, 2022

Abstract:

Photovoltaic (PV) systems based on microinverters harvest more sun energy than traditional central or string inverters because the shading of a PV panel within an array affects only that panel. However, cost is still an issue when competing not only with fossil-based energy sources but also with central or string inverters. Through this talk, several architectures will be presented and discussed.

November 22nd, 2022

Speaker:
Julie G. Pilitsis, M.D., PH.D., M.B. A

When: 5:00 PM, November 22, 2022

Abstract:

In this seminar, Prof. Pilitsis will describe her experiences with neurosurgeries for deep brain stimulation for the treatment of chronic pain and Parkinson’s Disease. This informal discussion is mostly oriented for students to ask questions regarding the surgical constraints for bioelectronic implants, device enhancement needs, challenges, and opportunities. The discussion will also focus on new treatment modalities that she has been pioneering, such as minimally invasive catheter-based ultrasound technology or MRI-guided focused ultrasound for brain tumor ablation.

Speaker:
Jeremy D. Ollerenshaw, PhD

When: 5:00 PM, November 10, 2022

Abstract:

This talk will focus on the requirements of the FDA for simple and complex biomedical products that may include bench, preclinical and clinical studies, validation and verification studies, product stability and biocompatibility. Other requirements will also be discussed such as product packaging and labeling. These are all aspects that are addressed in FDA submissions and are usually handled by a broad team. We will discuss how these all fit together. Additionally, the strategy of making applications to FDA for review and approval of biomedical products will be covered. This will be an interactive discussion, with plenty of time for Q&A, of regulatory considerations in developing medical devices and biotechnologies for clinical use, and for their approval by the US FDA.

Speaker:
Mohammad Atiquzzaman, Ph.D. and Distinguished Lecturer

When: 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM, November 03, 2022

Abstract:

Data communications between Earth and devices on spacecraft, such as satellites, have traditionally been carried out through dedicated links. Shared links using Internet Protocol-based communication offer a number of advantages over dedicated links. The movement of devices on spacecraft however gives rise to mobility management issues. This talk will discuss various mobility management solutions for extending the Internet connection to devices on spacecraft. The talk will provide an overview of the network layer-based solution being developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force and compare it with the transport layer-based solution that has been developed at the University of Oklahoma in conjunction with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Network in motion is an extension of the host mobility protocols for managing the mobility of networks that are in motion, such as those in airplanes and trains. The application of networks in motion will be illustrated for terrestrial and space environments.

Speaker:
Professor Mohammad Shahidehpour, NAE, IEEE Fellow, Illinois Institute of Technology

When: 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM, October 24, 2022

Abstract:

Hydrogen has been advocated as a promising energy carrier to achieve low-carbon integration of urban transportation network (UTN) and renewable energy-based power distribution network (PDN). In this presentation, we discuss the hydrogen refueling service fee (HRSF) as a scheduling strategy to guide hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (HFCEVs) in selecting the hydrogen refueling stations. Correspondingly, the HRSF-based coordinated operation model is established to minimize the costs of UTN travel, PDN operation, and carbon emission, while the nodal carbon restriction, uncertainties of renewable distributed generators, and origin-destination traffic demand and constraints are considered. The proposed model is solved by the decentralized alternative direction method of multipliers algorithm and verified on the hydrogen integrated UTN and PDN in Sioux Falls. Numerical results demonstrate that popularizing HFCEVs contributes to emission reduction, and the HRSF-based coordinated operation strategy is effective in reducing the overall emissions, promoting renewable energy accommodation, and improving the holistic operation efficiency of the hydrogen-integrated UTN and PDN.

Speaker:
John D. McDonald, NAE, P.E., GE Grid Solutions.

When: 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM, November 3, 2022

Abstract:

This talk will familiarize participants with a vision for Grid Modernization, focusing on technological advancements beyond Smart Grid. The technological advancements include discussions of key industry/societal trends, Smart Grid concepts, holistic solutions, integration of microgrids and distributed generation, and Advanced Distribution Management System (ADMS) software applications. The talk will also cover feeder automation business models, managing different types of data, big data, analytics, enterprise data management, Smart Grid standards and interoperability, and Smart Grid deployments and lessons learned.
