  • VENUE: Faculty of Engineering, Lecture Theatre
  • DATE: 18 Mar, 2014
  • TIME: 10.00am – 12.30pm
  • Event Organizer and Chair: M.K.A. Ahamed khan, Senior lecturer, FK, UNISEL
The event started with Dua and a key note address from M.K.A. Ahamed khan at 10.00am.During the key note address Mr. Ahamed khan briefed the audience [47 Engineering Degree level students, out of which 16 from Electrical division,5 from Mechatronics , 8 from Electronics division ,and the remaining from Civil engineering] about the role of IEEE, IEEERAS and the importance of attending the seminar. Students who enrolled for the subject Industrial seminar for the semester 1/14/34 took full advantage of this seminar, since its compulsory to attend at least one technical seminar to complete the course. About 19 students, enrolled for the subject industrial seminar were present for this event. The main focus of this event is to expose the students in to real world engineering and research applications where they can compare the theory they learn during the lecturing hours and improve their complex problem solving skills related to design and methodology.
Artificial intelligence (AI) techniques are already known as having significant impact on power electronics. These techniques have created a new and advancing frontier in power electronics, which is already a complex and multidisciplinary technology that is going through dynamic evolution in the recent years. This talk delivered by Dr.Amarn provided comprehensive introduction and perspective of AI techniques in the intelligent control of power electronic converters. Special attention had been given to Fuzzy Logic and Neural Network as widely explored by the speaker in his current research works. Finally, the speaker shared some of his research works and findings done in areas of power quality and renewable energy. The information shared by the speaker can be used by the lecturers involved in to the respective areas to frame assignments and test and final exam questions.
