Title:
Seattle IAS January Meeting - Arc Quenching Switchgear
Date:
January 21st
6:00 PM (1 hour)
Location:
Brown & Caldwell
Seattle, WA
Abstract:

This month we’ll be talking with Cameron Clark of Eaton on Arc Quenching Switchgear.  This type of switchgear advances the state-of-the-art for arc flash safety solutions by reducing incident energy to a level where the switchgear will survive an arc flash event, while providing enhanced safety and minimal equipment downtime.

 

Meeting Summary

  • Exceptional incident energy reduction – Reduces incident energy to less than 1.2 cal/cm2, far below methods that rely solely on a power circuit breaker to clear the fault. (For 480 V systems with 85,000 A of available fault current or less at a working distance of 18")
  • Enhanced safety – Exceeds C37.20.7 arc-resistant testing requirements by demonstrating acceptance even when breakers are removed, doors are open and covers are removed - without the need for ducts, plenums or special construction.
  • Advanced equipment protection – Protects valuable switchgear assets from arc flash damage.
  • Dramatically reduced downtime – Switchgear can be quickly returned to service after an arc flash event.

How Arc Quenching Switchgear works:

Arc Quenching Switchgear detects and contains an arc fault in less than 4 milliseconds, drastically reducing the incident energy. It works by detecting the ignition of an arc inside the switchgear and transferring it to the Arc Quenching Device. Arc Quenching Switchgear transfers the arc by creating a lower-impedance arcing fault, not a bolted fault, safely contained inside the Arc Quenching Device. This reduces the peak fault current by at least 25% and puts less stress on upstream equipment during a quenching operation.

Title:
Ground Fault Neutralizer - Earthing Concept & Single Phase to Ground Fault Protection System from Sweden
Date:
January 29th
11:30 AM (1.5 hours)
Location:
Courtyard Room
San Francisco, CA
Cost:
Admission fee may apply
Abstract:

EARTH FAULTS constitute the absolute majority of all faults on power lines, with statistics saying 75-100% of all faults are earth faults. Earth faults are known to start fires, damage properties and equipment, traumatize and kill people and animals.

FAST INTERCEPTION REDUCES RISK:  The Ground Fault Neutralizer technology [GFN] mitigates a specific type of fault on power lines, with this type of fault called many things including: single phase to ground fault, earth fault, and ground fault.

HIGH SENSITIVITY ENABLES PROTECTION TO ACT:  Protection does not only need to be fast and bring down fault currents, but most importantly, it also needs to be sensitive.  Sensitivity is another major challenge for traditional protection systems. Many of the dangerous high impedance faults (Hi Z) are simply not detected at all by traditional protection. The GFN offers world leading sensitivity by using advanced algorithms and the testing in Australia confirmed GFN detection levels of 25 kOhm and higher with fault current of 50mA or less in less than three cycles (

Abstract

One of the most important behavior both socially and culturally that impacts one’s health is diet. Assessing dietary intake of children and adults with high accuracy remains a major challenge in

the field of nutrition and health. In this talk, I will present the design and development of a novel food record using a mobile device to provide an accurate measure of daily food and nutrient intake. Different computer vision and machine learning methods have been developed to automatically identify foods and estimate energy from a meal image. These methods have been validated on both public datasets and our own datasets collected from dietary studies. Significant advances in video coding has been developed in the last two decades to satisfy the growing requirements of video applications. In this talk, we introduce the design and development of a switchable region-based coding scheme that leverages semantic segmentation to achieve a superior coding efficiency. We also present a novel perceptual quality assessment measure for the region-based coding scheme since point-by-point metrics are inadequate. The proposed method is evaluated on both standard test sets and the YouTube UGC datasets, which shows significant data rate reduction with satisfying visual quality verified by a subjective study.

EARLY FAULT DETECTION – Prevention of Powerline Faults & Fires
Date:
February 5th
12:00 PM (1.2 hours)
Location:
Golden Gate Room
San Francisco, CA
Cost:
Admission fee may apply
Abstract:

In mid-2019, a patented Australian designed and manufactured Early Fault Detection (EFD) system completed a large-scale trial on rural powerlines in Victoria in which it demonstrated clear fire-safety benefits.  The EFD Trial was a government/industry partnership covering 250 km of powerlines in NE and Western Victoria. Despite the limited Trial scope and duration (18 months), the EFD system identified three previously undetected failing assets with clear fire risk in high fire-consequence locations. EFD technology is now operating on networks in Australia, China and the USA. The EFD system uses IoT architecture, with geographically dispersed smart sensors performing on-site edge-computing and feeding cloud-based big-data analysis. It continuously monitors networks to detect and locate (to 10 m accuracy) a wide range of incipient faults in time for network owners to take remedial action before a network fault starts fires or interrupts supply to customers.  Incipient faults detected by EDF technology so far include vegetation touches, pole fires, conductor strand failures and clashing damage, broken tie-wires, dirty insulators and leaky insulator strings, and internal transformer faults.  Some of these faults were invisible to expert inspectors.  EFD technology has the potential to disruptively transform utilities’ traditional asset management and fire-risk management approaches.

Abstract:

The propagation of coherent light through a scattering medium is an extremely complex physical process. However, under certain conditions, if the incoming beam is spatially modulated to encode some data, the output as measured on a sensor can be modeled as a random projection of the input, i.e. its multiplication by a random iid matrix. One can leverage this principle for compressive imaging, and more generally for any data processing pipeline involving large-scale random projections. This talk will discuss the theoretical foundations that led to the development of LightOn’s Optical Processing Unit (OPU), the world’s first optical AI chip already operational at scale – available through LightOn Cloud. I will finally present a series of OPU use cases for machine learning, such as transfer learning, change point detection, recommender systems, or reinforcement learning.

Title:
Analysis and Synthesis of Sustainable Systems
Date:
February 10th
6:00 PM (3 hours)
Location:
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Santa Ana – Orange County Airport
Santa Ana, CA
Abstract:

The newly introduced concept of “Sustainability Over Set” (SOS) is presented.
The field of sustainability has traditionally suffered from a lack of specificity, that leads to misinterpretations regarding a system's sustainability status. The SOS concept readily allows the incorporation of human input into system sustainability assessment, by requiring the sustainability practitioner to develop/employ a mathematical model of the studied system, such as for example a set of ordinary differential equations whose solution captures the system's dynamic behavior.mSOS also requires that the user defines in advance the region in the system's state-space, within which the system's behavior must remain for all time. In return, SOS provides definitive "yes" or "no" answers to the question “is the system sustainable?”. Following the SOS introduction, illustrative case studies are presented, on a high dimensional ecosystem, and on an economic growth cycle.

Title:
The Lightning Phenomenon
Date:
February 18th
5:30 PM (2 hours)
Location:
775 Montague Expressway
Milpitas, CA
Abstract:

Lightning is one of the primary causes of damage and malfunction of telecommunication and power networks and one of the leading causes of weather-related deaths and injuries.
Lightning is composed of numerous physical processes, of which only a few are visible to the naked eye.
This lecture presents various aspects of the lightning phenomenon, its main processes and the
technologies that have been developed to assess the parameters that are important for engineering and scientific applications. These parameters include the channel-base current and its associated electromagnetic fields.
The measurement techniques for these parameters are intrinsically difficult due to the randomness
of the phenomenon and to the harsh electromagnetic environment created by the lightning itself.
Besides the measurement of the lightning parameters, warning and insurance applications require
the real-time detection and location of the lightning strike point. The main classical and emerging
lightning detection and location techniques, including those used in currently available commercial
lightning location systems will be described in the lecture. The newly proposed Electromagnetic
Time Reversal technique, which has the potential to revolutionize lightning location will also be
presented.

Lecture 1 (6:00 - 6:50 PM): "Deep-Subthreshold Operation of ADPLLs, Transmitters and ADCs," by Dr. Robert Bogdan Staszewski

Abstract:

Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices are meant to be powered by energy harvesters, which unfortunately tend to generate very little power at very low voltages, often well below the threshold voltage of CMOS transistors. Hence the need for an ultra-low power (ULP) and ultra-low voltage (ULV) operation of IoT electronic circuits. This talk presents recent breakthroughs in collaboration with TSMC in sub-threshold designs of an all-digital PLL (ADPLL), RF Bluetooth transmitter, and open-loop VCO-based ADC. The supply voltage in these circuits can go to as low as 0.2V.

Lecture 2 (7:00 - 7:50 PM): "A New Type of Frequency Synthesis for RF and mm-Wave: Charge-Sharing Locking," by Dr. Yizhe Hu

Abstract:

Ultra-low jitter (sub-100fs) frequency synthesis is highly desirable for 5G RF and mm-Wave (mmW) communications to support the complex modulation schemes (e.g. 1024QAM). Our group has recently invented a new charge-sharing locking (CSL) technique to meet these tough requirements. A quadrature CSL prototype was implemented in TSMC 28nm CMOS and achieves 75fs jitter in 21.7-to-26.5GHz while consuming only 16.5mW. This talk presents the details and gives further insights into designing oscillators with ultra-low phase noise in the flicker and thermal regions.

Bio:

1: The Legal Implications of  CA SB327 (New CA IOT Security Law) for Electrical Design Projects: (Bob Hunter - Alphaguardian)

  

On January 1, 2020 a new era of security requirements begins in California. SB327, also known as the IoT Security Law, affects all devices sold in California which have an Ethernet or Bluetooth port.  The law requires that all of these devices provide a means to securely authenticate any communications to or from a device.  Modbus, BACnet and most SNMP devices do not meet the criterion of the law and will require external security be added in order to be compliant.  The law is enforced by the California Attorney General’s office through the local county and city agencies and has the teeth to levy substantial fines.  In this presentation, we will discuss how to ensure that your designs live within the confines of this new law to ensure that you and your firm will be compliant to the law's requirements.

 Bob is Founder and CEO of AlphaGuardian Networks, a pioneering leader in the field of secure management for the Industrial Internet of Things.    Bob is the author of several patents, a published author and frequent speaker.

Innovation and breakthrough approaches that benefit humanity start with an idea. Your ability to advance your ideas depends in part on whether you can convince decision makers and cross-disciplinary team members to support the work. Yet communicating to non-expert funders, managers or colleagues is often where technologists fail. Amy and Roger Aines reveal why, and what can be done to change the outcome. In this talk, they will share insights and strategies from their research for writing Championing Science – Communicating Your Ideas to Decision Makers. They will explain how engineers can leverage skills in research, observation, experimentation, and the influence process, to make sure their ideas are heard. For more information visit www.championingscience.com

Title:
Toward 100Gbps Fully Integrated Wireless Communication Transceivers
Date:
March 24th
12:00 PM (1 hour)
Location:
Cal Poly Pomona, CA
Abstract:

The future's more connected societies are in sore need of high-speed point-to-point wireless links with a data rate comparable to wireline links in both indoor short-range and outdoor long-range scenarios. Enabling applications include: optical fiber replacement, high-capacity backhauls, close-proximity wireless data transfer, etc. High-speed communication relies on two major factors: bandwidth and modulation format. The vastly under-utilized mm-wave to sub-THz band is very attractive for this application. However, the abundance of bandwidth in mm-wave/sub-THz bands cannot be easily utilized with commercially available low-cost Silicon-based fabrication technologies. Meanwhile, increasing modulation order puts stringent requirement on the high-speed mixed-signal interface design, i.e. analog-to-digital converters, digital-to-analog-converters and digital signal processors. In short, conventional transceiver architectures encounter serious bottleneck that limits achievable data rate and posts significant concerns on system cost and efficiency. The state-of-the-art solutions will be presented and discussed first, followed by our proposed way of implementing highly integrated ultra-high-speed wireless transceivers.
