IEEE Atlanta PES Lunch Meeting: “Battery Energy Storage for System Flexibility with Solar Generation”

November 13, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Abstract: Proliferation of solar generation continues to grow as incentives and lower costs drive the technology forward. As the total installed capacity grows, utilities are facing issues that include excess generation during times of peak sunlight and intermittency due to nature of renewable resources. Battery energy storage is gaining traction as a means to support solar generation to achieve energy arbitrage and firm intermittency. This presentation will discuss drivers, applications, and system architectures for battery energy storage combined with solar…

IEEE AP/MTT Atlanta Chapter Presents: Vacuum Electronics to Power MMW Applications

December 5, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

The benefits of operating in the millimeter wave or extremely high frequency (EHF) region of the electromagnetic spectrum (spanning from 30 to 300 GHz) are well known to the RF electronics system designer. Of course the challenges of working in this spectral region are also well documented, including high signal attenuation, tight antenna pointing accuracy, and general lack of system components, especially RF sources. Device development over the last decade has served to significantly increase the transmitter designer’s toolbox for…

Human-Guided Statistical Relational Learning

December 10, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Recently there has been an increased interest in intelligent systems that effectively utilize human feedback. Traditional machine learners are reliant on a large amount of ideal training data. However, it is vital that learning systems working on complex, real-world tasks make use of expert knowledge to complement available data. Many intelligent systems require that the expert understand machine learning in order to provide useful knowledge. This talk will give an overview of relational learning techniques and then describe approaches that…

IEEE Atlanta PES Lunch Meeting: “Grid 2.0 – Changes and Challenges for the 21st Century Electric Grid”

January 15 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Program:  “Generally speaking, keeping up with the speed of technological advancement has not been a major challenge for those responsible for the electric grid – until now. Utilities’ historical maintenance-focused approach of ‘If it ain’t broke it, don’t fix it’ no longer applies.  The unique challenges of the 21st century – including cyber threats and global interconnectedness, coupled with an extreme interdependence on technology – necessitate that the Grid change at a faster pace than ever before. This story will…

IEEE AP/MTT Atlanta Chapter Presents: Time-Varying Electromagnetic Devices

February 19 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

Professor Yuanxun Ethan Wang, UCLA: I will introduce multiple initiatives supported by NSF and DARPA on the development of a new class of electromagnetic devices that operate in a time-varying fashion. These time-varying devices include transmission lines, filters, and antennas, and may be constructed on semiconductor or electromechanical platforms. Their time-dependent properties are induced through parametric modulation or switching modes. Through addition of the new time dimension, several fundamental limits of passives can be lifted.  Applications including full-duplex radios, tunable…
