The IEEE WPR PES / CHRES / UPRM Creative Design Challenge on Renewable Energy involves students in critical thinking, the engineering design process, the use of learning drawing tools in engineering graphics, computer-aided drawing (CAD) and teamwork. Students have to solve a “real-world problem” that promotes and challenges the knowledge acquired on topics related to renewable energy. Three types of renewable energy ideas will be evaluated: Wave Energy, Biomass, Hydroelectric, Hybrid Systems and Wind Farms. On December 17, 2020, a “review panel” will select the 10 best renewable energy design concepts. These winners will advance to the “Assembly / Arduino / Award Day” that will take place on February 7, 2021.

Industry 4.0 & Smart Manufacturing Workshop Part 2 – Western Puerto Rico Section Chap,PE31 on 15-September-2020

Wednesday, September 16th, 2020

This workshop is divided in three parts.  The first part consists in the introduction how the manufacturing industry has been evolving across the last decades until the present days where the common use of IoT, Energy Systems, smart devices, etc.  The second part is related on industries like HP has been evolving and changing their business model and adapting smart manufacturing to the current needs.  The third part is in the applications of the different learning experiences and strategies of Industry 4.0 & Smart Manufacturing to other industries like energy systems, pharmaceutical industries, services, etc.

Position Sensor Signal Conditioning for Industrial Applications – WESTERN PUERTO RICO SP01/CAS04 CHAPTER on 30-September-2015

Sunday, September 27th, 2015

Position sensing is one of the most critical measurements in industrial hydraulics systems. Linear Variable Displacement Transformers (LVDTs) are one of the most common sensors used to measure position. The sensor requires AC excitation on primary coil and sensing on secondary coils. Sensor non linearity, temperature coefficient and sensitivity levels must be considered and properly compensated for. In addition signal amplitude and phase information sensed on the secondary requires demodulation to map the displacement within the sensor. These applications present a great case study covering the interaction between analog design aspects and digital signal processing. This presentation covers analog techniques for front end design, excitation circuit, signal processing, their implementation and silicon results. Various system level analysis techniques and performance parameters are discussed as well.
