  • Low Cost Resonance Damping for Grid-tied Converters

    September 24, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm FREEDM Systems Center

    https://www.ece.ncsu.edu/seminar/low-cost-resonance-damping-for-grid-tied-converters/

    Grid connected power electronic converters, such as industrial motor drives and PV inverters, require filters to reduce harmonics. LCL filters are a cost effective means to meet the required standards for total harmonic distortion, but they require an explicit resonance damping strategy. Passive (resistive) damping methods are lossy and expensive, and active damping methods require...

    Title: Four Scholarly Leave Projects

    Abstract: I will summarize the four areas of focus during my 2018/2019 Scholarly Leave. They are 1) Digital Control System Projects course changes and textbook revision plans, 2) IEEE Standards for Machine Olfaction working group establishment, 3) Sleep Apnea Project for BME 551, Medical Device Design; and 4) Artificial Sweetener Toxicity Awareness. A brief summary of all of these projects will be presented.

  • Flexible Bioelectronics on a Thread: Sensors, Microfluidics, Electronics and Drug Delivery

    September 26, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm Monteith Research Center, Room 454

    https://www.ece.ncsu.edu/seminar/flexible-bioelectronics-on-a-thread-sensors-microfluidics-electronics-and-drug-delivery/

    During his presentation, Dr. Sonkusale will explore the new realm of using threads as an ultimate platform for flexible and stretchable bioelectronics. Threads offer unique advantages of universal availability, low cost, material diversity and simple textile-based processing. Interestingly, threads also provide an ideal platform for passive microfluidic sampling and delivery of analytes. Further, Dr. Sonkusale...

    Speaker: Dr. Sameer Sonkusale
    Tufts University

    Sameer Sonkusale is currently a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Tufts University with a joint appointment in the department of Biomedical Engineering. At Tufts University, Dr. Sonkusale directs an interdisciplinary research group Nano Lab with research focus on flexible bioelectronics, biomedical microdevices circuits and systems, microfabrication and nanofabrication. The technology developed in his labs has resulted in creation of several startups (noP Medical – nopmedical.com, Hero Patch -theheropatch.com, Boston Sensors-bostonsensors.com) with others licensed to several companies. Prior to coming to Tufts, he was an Assistant Professor at Texas A&M University from 2002 to 2004. For 2011-2012 and again in 2018-2019, He also held the position of visiting scholar at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School and the Wyss Institute at Harvard University. Dr. Sonkusale also serves on the board of advisors of SRM University-AP in India, and Science for the public (SftP) non-profit.

  • Design and Control of Hybrid Active Power Filters for Power Quality Compensation

    September 27, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm EB2 2040

    Dr. Chi-Seng Lam
    University of Macau

    With the proliferation and increased use of power electronic devices (nonlinear loads) and motor loadings, such as: converters, adjustable speed drives (ASDs), bulk rectifiers, power supplies, elevators, escalators, large air conditioning systems, etc., the power quality (PQ) problems become more and more serious, especially for lower power factor, harmonic current, unbalanced current, etc., which strongly affects the performance, efficiency and reliability of the grid. Active power filter is one of the effective solutions to solve the PQ problems, however, its initial and operational costs are relatively high due to its high DC-link operation voltage requirement. To relax this drawback, the combination of passive and active power filters to form a hybrid active power filter (HAPF) can provide a cost-effective solution for PQ compensation. In this talk, the topology and control strategy of the HAPF system developed by University of Macau will be presented and discussed, and its practical application case in Macao will be introduced.

    Bio:
    Chi-Seng Lam (S’04–M’12–SM’16) received the B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and electronics engineering from the University of Macau (UM), Macao, China, in 2003, 2006, and 2012, respectively. He completed 2019 Clare Hall Study Programme in University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK in 2019.
    From 2006 to 2009, he was an Electrical and Mechanical Engineer with UM. In 2009, he simultaneously worked as a Laboratory Technician with UM and started to pursue his Ph.D. degree, and completed it within three years. In 2013, he was a Post-Doctoral Fellow with The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong, China. He is currently an Associate Professor with the State Key Laboratory of Analog and Mixed-Signal VLSI & Institute of Microelectronics, UM and also with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, UM. He has co-authored/edited 4 books and more than 90 technical journals and conference papers. He holds 4 U.S. patents and 2 Chinese patents. His research interests include integrated power electronics controllers, power management integrated circuits, power quality compensators, renewable energy, wireless power transfer. 
    Dr. Lam was a recipient of the IEEE PES Chapter Outstanding Engineer Award in 2016, the Macao Science and Technology Invention Award (2nd Class and 3rd Class) and the R&D Award for Postgraduates (Ph.D.) in 2018, 2014 and 2012, respectively, and the 3rd RIUPEEEC Merit Paper Award in 2005. He was the Chair of IEEE Macau CAS Chapter from 2017 to 2018. He is currently the Vice-Chair of IEEE Macau Section and the Chair of IEEE Macau IES Chapter. He served as a member of Organizing Committee or Technical Program Committee of several international conferences
