Title:
Industrial Control Networks | Security Risks and Solutions | Rockwell Automation
Date:
September 18th
5:30 PM (2 hours)
Location:
Luigi's Italian Restaurant
Spokane, WA
Abstract:

How can Industry Manage Threats with a Comprehensive Security Approach?

A fully connected enterprise requires a comprehensive approach to industrial security. This approach includes policies and procedures that address people, process, and technology-related risks. A ​complex, interconnected​ system includes challenges. It is critical to understand the potential risks and start building security into your industrial automation control systems.

Industrial assets require a defense-in-depth security approach that addresses both internal and external security threats. A defense-in-depth security architecture is based on the idea that any one point of protection ​may​ be defeated. This approach uses physical, electronic, and procedural layers of defense, and applies the appropriate controls that address different types of risks.

This presentation will introduce the concepts of managing potential threats and building a more secure industrial control system, including how to address industrial security needs, reduce risk, and enable uptime in control systems.  The presentation will also cover practices outlined in IEC 62443 standard and the NIST 800-82 guidelines.

 This is a non-hosted event, i.e., food and beverages will be available for purchase at the expense of the attendee. Food and beverage purchase is welcome, but not required for event attendance.

4:00 PM (1 hour)
Location:
Warnock Engineering Building (WEB)
Salt Lake City, UT
Abstract:

Would deploying energy storage and/or other innovative technology alter business models and the utility of the future? We are experiencing significant changes in energy supply due to a number of factors, including the increased availability of natural gas; the growth in renewable, demand-side and storage technologies; and new environmental requirements. This lecture provides an overview of US federal regulation of public utilities, including rate revision, challenge process, and the landmark orders that shaped energy industries we have today. In addition, the lecture offers insights of why energy industries moved from traditional cost-based regulation to competitive markets in an open access environment, and how regulators encourage the use of advanced technology in new transmission projects. Advanced transmission technologies increase the capacity, efficiency, or reliability of an existing or new transmission facility while continuing to ensure that consumers have access to sustainable energy at a reasonable cost.

Title:
Lecture: From Bits to Gigabits, Using Software Defined Radio
Date:
September 23rd
11:30 AM (2 hours)
Location:
AGO Building A1
El Segundo, CA
Abstract:

Abstract: 

Have you ever wanted to build a magic receiver that can get images from weather satellites, decode ship and airplane position messages, tune to your favorite FM station, and even navigate by GPS?  All of this is possible today using a USB dongle and a laptop running software defined radio (SDR) code.  This talk will cover the basics of SDR – from getting an analog signal into a computer to the wide range of frameworks and tools available to process the signal.  We will briefly discuss radios that can process gigabits and gigahertz of data, and tiny SDRs that can run off batteries.  Software being the key part of SDR, we will discuss the challenges of executing real-time signal processing at high rates on COTS servers.  Finally, we will touch on the evolution of SDRs as applied to 5G, ground stations, and how it all ends up in the ‘cloud.’

Location:
San Francisco Italian Athletic Club
San Francisco, CA
Cost:
Admission fee may apply
Abstract:

 

Summary: NFPA-99 made changes designating all Operating Rooms as Wet Procedure Locations, unless a documented risk assessment proves otherwise. While this does not change the requirements for Isolated Power Systems (IPS) per NFPA-70 Article 517, the utilization of IPS is increasing.  This session will discuss the NEC and NFPA-99 code changes as related to isolated power systems. Furthermore, the session will discuss best practices in the design, installation, maintenance & usage of the systems.

Learning Objectives 1: Identification of the NFPA-99's new risk based design approach and associated (Chapter 4) categories

Learning Objectives 2: Understand the applicable codes & standards including NFPA-99 Code changes as it relates to Operating Rooms and spaces deemed as "Wet Procedure Locations"

Learning Objectives 3: Understand the theory of operation of Isolated Power Systems and Line Isolation Monitors (LIMs)

Learning Objectives 4: Understand best practices for the equipment selection, installation, and maintenance of Isolated Power Systems and Line Isolation Monitors (LIMs)

Title:
Title 1: Waveguide Cutoff Effect of Vehicular Tunnels Demonstrated with Zero Span Spectrum Analysis; Title 2: Circular Aperture Effect on Radiated Emissions of Electrostatic Discharge Events
Date:
September 24th
6:30 PM (2.5 hours)
Location:
Shiley Hall
Portland
Abstract:

Abstract:  Zero span spectrum analysis was used to characterize the attenuation of AM and FM signals in a vehicular tunnel and demonstrate that AM signals are attenuated immediately due to waveguide cutoff while FM signals are gradually attenuated due to obstruction or blockage in the tunnel.

Abstract:  Waveguide cutoff phenomenon theory and the associated aperture effects on the radiated emissions of Electrostatic Discharges measured during process module assessments are introduced. Characterization of Charge Device Model (CDM) induced events were recorded with an oscilloscope at five voltage levels and three antenna heights with and without an aperture impeding free space propagation. The frequency domain response of ESD events is presented with the aid of real time spectrum analysis.

1:10pm to 2:00pm: Introduction to Control Loops
Abstract: This talk starts out easy on the several simple control methods for a switching power supply. It covers
fixed frequency for both voltage modes and current mode control. Showing how adding in just the right
amount of extra ramp help stabilize the output for >50% duty cycles. Variable frequency control methods like
Constant ON Time and a few of its variations are covered. To be able to shape the gain and keep it stable, we
will cover the error amp and its compensation, covering Type1, Type 2, Type 2B, and Type 3 compensation.
The examples used for this seminar use in the buck regulator.

(since acquired by Renesas Electronics) and Cypress semiconductor.

2:00pm to 2:50pm: A Dive into Fixed Frequency and Constant ON-Time Control Architectures for
Power Converters
Abstract: Throughout the years various control architectures have been adopted by power engineers in order to
regulate the constant output voltage. Fixed frequency control techniques have dominated the market as the
workhorse for precise control under most load conditions. However, the demand for longer battery life and
improvements in efficiency at light loads creates a window of opportunity for hysteretic control and various
power saving control techniques. In this presentation, details on voltage mode, current mode and constant
On-Time architectures will be explained. Pros and cons for each architecture will be discussed along with
practical issues with feedback loop design, effect of parasitic elements and loop gain measurement.

and consumer space. Prior to his recent work in the telecom market, he helped develop DC-DC products for the
computing sector. Nassif obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from California
Polytechnic State University (SLO) in 2010. He also holds a Master’s Degree In Electrical Engineering from San
Jose State University.

3:00pm to 3:30pm: Break and Refreshments

3:30pm to 4:20pm: Multiphase Converters: Higher Powers, Lower Ripple, Faster Response
Abstract: Multiphase converters deliver more power to the load, but also increase performance by interleaving the
switching waveforms to lower ripple voltage. With more switching events, multiphase converters have more
opportunity to respond to fast transients, typical in microprocessor systems. This talk will introduce
multiphase buck converters, discuss popular control strategies, and address methods of current balance, a
typical challenge with these converters.
Bio: Doug Osterhout has worked in power electronics for over 20 years. He started at Celestica Power Systems
designing kilowatt ac-dc power supplies. In 2001, he switched industries to semiconductors where’s held various
positions at Micrel, ADI, and ON Semi. There he designed LED drivers, Intel CPU power, and offline converters.
For the last 2 years, Doug has been at Google working on consumer products.

4:20pm to 5:10pm: From OpAmps to MCU’s: Intro to Digital Control
Abstract: Learn how to transition from op-amp and comparator-based controller to digital microcontroller power
controllers. Digital control provides unique flexibility to tune the converter setpoints and parameters as a
function of load or any digital input. However, moving to digital control introduces its own set of challenges.
This talk will discuss the advantages of digital control, what to look for when selecting a microcontroller for
power, and how to translate continuous-time controllers into discrete-time digital controllers. Finally,
common pitfalls when implementing digital control will be discussed.
Bio: Dr. Michael Seeman is President and Founder of Eta One Power, Inc. Eta One Power develops advanced

Title:
The 5G Deployment Challenge: Regulation and the Debate on Public Safety
Date:
September 25th
5:30 PM (2 hours)
Location:
Luigi's Italian Restaurant
Spokane, WA
Abstract:

In a remarkably short time 5G has transitioned from an idea into a deployed communications technology across towns and cities in the US and internationally. This talk will summarize existing regulatory guidelines governing the deployment of wireless technology and discuss how aspects of 5G will require new approaches in specifying and verifying compliance to appropriate guidelines. However, there is a broader debate in some scientific communities and in the general public that 5G has not been sufficiently studied to ensure that mass deployment does not present a health risk. As it stands, the industry is comfortable with existing guidelines and does not see 5G as a reason for concern. This contrasts with growing scepticism over whether existing guidelines are in fact safe. Both sides cite extensive science research to justify their position. Both can’t be right, so what’s going on?

Title:
Hybrid PLL Architectures and Implementations
Date:
September 26th
3:00 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
Qualcomm AZ-Auditorium (10155 Pacific Heights Blvd, San Diego, CA 92121)
San Diego, CA
Abstract:

Depending on the target application and on implementation constraints, both conventional charge pump PLLs and high performance digital PLLs may be excellent implementation choices. Each design type offers significant technical advantages while also raising its own set of design challenges. For example, charge pump PLLs naturally provide a feedback signal that is linearly related to phase error, but typically demand the use of a physically large loop filter capacitor if lower loop bandwidths are desired. High performance digital PLLs solve the loop capacitor problem, but may require a high performance time-to-digital converter as part of the feedback linearization solution. This presentation will focus on the exploration of a hybrid PLL architecture, an approach which features an analog proportional path in combination with a digital integral path, thus in some way offering the best of both PLL worlds. The approach will be introduced and explored through the presentation of multiple high-performance integrated hybrid PLL implementations in deep submicron CMOS technologies.

TITLE: Dissecting Design Choices in Continuous-time Delta-Sigma Converters

ABSTRACT:

Continuous-time Delta-Sigma Modulators (CTDSMs) are a compelling choice for the design of high resolution analog-to-digital converters. Many delta-sigma architectures have been published (and continue to be invented). This leaves the designer with a bewildering array of choices, many of which seem to pull in opposite directions. Further, it is often difficult to make a clear comparison of various architectures, as they have been designed for dissimilar specifications, by different design groups, and in different technology nodes. This talk examines various alternatives for the design of power efficient single-loop continuous-time delta sigma converters.

Title:
Managing the Unmanageable: If You Are Agile, What Do Managers Do?
Date:
October 3rd
6:00 PM (3 hours)
Location:
National Instruments
Santa Clara, CA
Abstract:

TEMS SCV/SF/OEB Webpage ===> TEMS-SCV-Website

EVENTBRITE REGISTRATION ===> Register-for-TEMS1019

A common misconception about agile is that managers are unnecessary. After all, agile is based on self-organizing teams. If the teams organize themselves, what do managers do?

Unfortunately, most scrum training plays into that. Think about it: how many trainers or coaches have you seen sketch the structure of a scrum team with a drawing that includes a manager? While there’s always a scrum master and a product owner, the core team and maybe some stakeholders, have you ever seen a manager in that drawing?

This misconception can be a problem all around: A frequently cited barrier to agile adoption is managers who don’t know what to do when their teams become self-managing. When they’re not included in training, how would they (or anyone else, for that matter) know how to characterize their role. At the same time, organizations often lay down expectations of managers, some compatible with agile, some not.

Agile has shifted the old roles and responsibilities. Organizations truly embracing Scrum no longer make managers responsible for delivery. Managers bent on command-and-control are clearly a barrier to agile adoption. But managers who take a hands-off approach or think their roles are just H.R. will almost certainly stymie adoption, as well.

Ron Lichty, who advises business leaders how to make their software development “hum”, believes that managers have critical roles to play in enabling agile success. So do a lot of the early agile thought leaders. This talk is about manager roles and about success.

IEEE Oregon Section TEMS Workshop Series - Technology Strategic Planning
Date:
October 5th
9:00 AM (4 hours)
Location:
Tektronix Beaverton Campus-Bldg. 38
Beaverton
Cost:
Admission fee may apply
Abstract:

Strategic planning consists of translating a diverse set of input into a coherent approach to achieve business goals. A strong plan is an integral part of any successful enterprise. This workshop covers topics targeted at managing direction and planning from a corporate, department, or a small company orientation in today’s fast-paced “hyper-velocity” markets.  One of the key questions to be addressed is “How can I develop a strategy when it is nearly impossible to identify a long-term competitive advantage?”  The challenge is to be able to manage today to position the company to compete in an essentially unknowable future.  Defining simply, one’s strategy is necessary, but often insufficient to assure success.  The challenge is planning for effective implementation and rapid adaptation within a diverse team facing fast-changing technologies and markets.  The workshop provides several foundation concepts and tools to organize the strategic plans. The learning will be through presented material and discussions.

Cost:
Admission fee may apply
Abstract:

IT IS FINALLY HERE!  After 16 long years, the next edition of IEEE 1584 was finally published.  In this two-day arc flash training class, Jim Phillips, P.E., introduces the 2018 edition of the IEEE 1584.  Jim discusses the changes, walks you through the calculations with his new worksheets and how the 2018 edition is is used in arc flash studies.

The 2018 edition of IEEE 1584 is a major game changer.  Almost everything has changed since the original edition was introduced in 2002.

Highlights of the next edition include:

  • Five different electrode configurations to enable more detailed modeling
    • Vertical electrodes in a metal box/enclosure – VCB (also in 2002 Edition)
    • Vertical electrodes terminated in an insulating barrier in a metal box/enclosure – VCCB
    • Horizontal electrodes in a metal box/enclosure – HCB
    • Vertical electrodes in open air – VOA (also in 2002 Edition)
    • Horizontal electrodes in open air – HOA
  • More choices for enclosure types and sizes
  • Enclosure correction factor calculation to adjust for specific enclosure size
  • The effect of grounding has been eliminated
  • An arcing current variation factor calculation replaces the 85% factor
  • Calculations performed at 1 of 3 voltage levels with interpolation to actual voltage
  • The 125 kVA transformer exception was eliminated
  • Each calculation is performed in 2 steps which includes an initial calculation based on one of three voltage levels and a second calculation interpolating to the specific system voltage.    The 125 kVA “exception” was replaced.  Learn why and what has replaced it.  What about the 2 second rule?  Jim discusses all this and much more.
