Keynote Speakers

  1. Prof.Mustahsan Mir, Ajman University of Science & Technology, UAE


    Abstract: Undergraduate engineering students are required to develop a number of skills including design, simulation, implementation, troubleshooting, and testing of a system or process to achieve the desired specifications while taking into consideration the given constraints. As a result, students are now introduced to the design concepts at an earlier stage and their design, simulation, and implementation skills are gradually developed throughout their undergraduate studies. The keynote speech will describe the evolutionary process developed at Ajman University over the past ten years to gradually develop these skills utilizing course-based projects, completely projects-based courses, capstone projects, and competition projects. The educational effectiveness of this evolutionary approach will also be addressed. The speech will also focus on an embedded peer-to-peer coaching scheme for developing the practical skills of below-average students and mentoring skills of talented engineering students. The results of implementing this scheme over the past many years will be presented and discussed.

    "Stability Control of Electrical Grids Based on Intelligent Strategy"
    Abstract: The load shedding is an emergency technique applied by power companies at times of a huge power demand likely to disrupt the balance consummation and production. The deliberate shutdown of electric power in a part or parts of a power-distribution system, generally to prevent the failure of the entire system when the demand strains the operational stability of the system. In order to ensure the power system stability and to avoid vulnerabilities leading to the blackouts, several preventive and curative means are adopted. In order to avoid the voltage collapse, load shedding schemes represent a suitable action to maintain the power system service quality and to control its vulnerability. In this paper, we try to propose an intelligent load shedding strategy as a new approach based on fuzzy controllers. This strategy was founded on the calculation of generated power sensitivity degree related to those injected at different network buses. During the fault phase, fuzzy controller algorithms generate monitor vectors ensuring a pre-calculated load shedding ratio in the purpose to reestablish the power balance and conduct super grid to a new steady state
