VDL: Generative Adversarial Networks for Spectrum Sharing

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/329642

Abstract: Due to the explosive growth of new users and new applications, it is expected that the wireless spectrum will need to be used in a dynamic fashion starting in the near future. This can be achieved by using the concept of cognitive radio, giving users access to the unused spectrum under dynamic spectrum access. It is generally accepted that conventional methods of cognitive radio will fall short of being able to handle the enormous demand for spectral resources, and therefore it is expected that techniques from artificial intelligence or machine learning will help provide dynamic control for spectrum sharing. The process of spectrum sharing begins with sensing the spectrum. Recently, a number of techniques for spectrum sensing employing machine learning have been introduced. In this talk, we employ a machine learning approach known as generative adversarial networks towards this purpose. This particular approach is known to be very successful for anomaly detection in image processing. We alter performance criteria used in this set of networks from image processing applications to wireless and employ such networks for spectrum sensing, both in conventional and cooperative spectrum sensing. Initial results show the efficacy of this approach. Speaker(s): Dr. Ender, Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/329642

VDL: AI in 6G Networks – Path from Enabler to AI Native Air Interface

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/329644

Abstract: Machine learning (ML) and AI will play a key role in the development of 6G networks. Network virtualization and network softwarization solutions in 5G networks can support data-driven intelligent and automated networks to some extent and this trend will grow in 5G-advanced networks. Radio access network algorithms and radio resource management functions can exploit network intelligence to fine tune network parameters to reach close-to-optimal performance in 5G networks. In 6G networks, network intelligence is envisioned to be end-to-end, and air interface is envisioned to be AI-native. The user equipment (UE) devices need to be smarter, environment and context aware, and capable of running ML algorithms. This talk will focus on the main practical challenges in developing machine learning solutions in 5G use cases and emphasize with a case study how deployment of these solutions is much harder in a live network as compared to theoretical performance evaluation. Further, a vision for paradigm shift from AI-as-an-enabler to AI-Native air-interface will be provided for 6G networks. Speaker(s): Dr. Majid, Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/329644

IEEE Denver PES/IAS Chapter NOVEMBER 2022 Meeting

Room: Upstairs Meeting Room, Bldg: The Original Brooklyn's, 2644 W Colfax Ave, Denver, Colorado, United States, 80204

Schedule 6:00 – Check-in and Networking 6:30 – Dinner Served 7:00 – Presentation 8:00 – Adjourn Troubleshooting 5 MW mobile gas turbines Summary: End users complained of voltage fluctuations from 5 MW mobile gas turbines. Initial investigations discovered arc marks and corroded connections in the PT bushings. This type of corrosion is not common across several hundred similar installations used for the past 10 years. During review of the original damaged PTs engineers postulated that ferroresonance could potentially be a root cause of voltage fluctuations on the original configuration. During testing, ferroresonant voltage waveforms were captured by a power quality meter at the secondary of the wye PTs feeding the voltage regulator following a breaker close onto unloaded switchgear. These waveforms were not present during steady state operation nor were they captured during every breaker close operation. Each of the captured ferroresonant events were accompanied by high speed over voltage spikes that resembled arcing. This report summarizes the results of an independent, outside review commissioned to further investigate the ferroresonance issue and possible root cause of the arcing damage observed in the PT connections.

Double Feature: Report on HotChips 2022 and a view of the US National CHIPS Act

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/332275

Continuing our tradition of giving a report on the semiconductor industry’s annual HotChips conference (in 2022 they celebrated the 34th edition), the speaker will share his perspective on what was new, what was slightly warmed over and what we can really look forward to in the coming years. But beyond this annual conference, there was also intense activity taking place in the corridors of Washington DC and after some hand wringing, the US Congress finally passed the Chips Act of 2022. The second half of the presentation will cover numerous aspects of this, what does it really entail, does it help or is it a drop in the bucket? That depends on who you ask. Not an easy document to digest, and with insights gathered from different personae, the speaker will attempt to give you the skinny on this. Interestingly – in the last 8 weeks, there have been some developments in the chip shortage supply chain. We will squeeze in a couple of items, as this does have implications overall for all industries.

FERC Order 2222: Key Concepts and Ongoing Steps Towards DER Aggregations in Wholesale Markets

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/332440

FERC Order No. 2222 will help usher in the electric grid of the future and promote competition in electric markets by removing the barriers preventing distributed energy resources (DERs) from competing on a level playing field in the organized capacity, energy and ancillary services markets run by regional grid operators. This rule enables DERs to participate alongside traditional resources in the regional organized wholesale markets through aggregations, opening U.S. organized wholesale markets to new sources of energy and grid services. It will help provide a variety of benefits including: lower costs for consumers through enhanced competition, more grid flexibility and resilience, and more innovation within the electric power industry. The rule allows several sources of distributed electricity to aggregate in order to satisfy minimum size and performance requirements that each may not be able to meet individually. FERC staff will provide an overview of the rule’s requirements and the compliance efforts to date.

VIRTUAL PRESENTATION: COMMITTING TO BEING A HIGH IMPACT LEADER AS AN ENGINEER

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/330680

Engineers often get a bad wrap as being committed to their profession but not to leadership. Leadership is the number one key to building successful organizations and teams and can also be a key to gaining acceptance of ideas. Leaders are a major influence on the culture in which people work, on how people are treated, and how things get done. Engineers can be excellent, high impact leaders who make a difference in lives and organizations. However, to do so they must be committed leaders as well as committed engineers and become students of how to lead and bring out the best in people, teams, and organizations. This session will provide a practical understanding of the importance of skilled leadership, the impact leaders can have, and the critical skills engineers need to learn to be leaders committed to making a difference.
