KSU - IAS Student Chapter
Kansas State University IEEE Industry Applications Society Student Chapter is a student organization managed by graduate students, currently managed by the SPECS Team members. This organization aims to promote advances in knowledge and theory of Electrical Engineering and related sciences, in accordance with the constitution and by-laws of IEEE. All students interested in the field of power electronics, power systems, and electric machines are welcome to join. Members will have opportunities to discuss ideas research ideas, tour power electronics and power systems laboratories, attend workshops, listen and engage with famous scientists/researchers/industry managers, and receive tutoring/advising from graduate student members.
KSU IAS Chapter and SPECS Research Team hosted a webinar about active front-end power converter for regenerative motor-drive systems applications and challenges presented by Dr. Ahmed Mohamed Sayed Ahmed.
Regenerative active front end “AFE” based motor-drive systems are a very important segment in the drives market. The main advantages of this segment are that it does not require a braking resistor, it provides an input current with significantly reduced Total Harmonic Distortion “THD” , and a unity power factor.
KSU IAS Student Chapter and SPECS Research Group organized a webinar about microgrid concept presented by Professor Josep Guerrero on January 21, 2021. Students, alumni, and faculty members from Electrical and Computer Engineering and Computer Science departments attended the webinar.
Content of this talk include how we could produce, store, and consume energy locally as well as the relationship with our life philosophies concern, "To change outside world, we need to change from inside out." The speech presented some examples of how these technologies have impacted our daily lives with photovoltaic panels (PVs) in our rooftops, electrical vehicles in our garages, and energy storage systems in our houses.
