Making V2G a reality from technology to market success Webinar

MS Team:

We welcome you to the Making V2G a reality from technology to market success Webinar. Let us introduce you to our speakers: André Duarte SWITCH CTO André holds a MSc. in Electrical and Computers Engineering yielded by the Technical University of Lisbon. Since he has finished his academic studies in 2014, he has dedicated his career to e-mobility, by working for Siemens Mobility, developing High Power Charging stations, The Mobility House where he helped build an intelligent backend system for EV charging and now Switch EV, where André is now the CTO and helps the company to achieve its vision to solve the interoperability problem of the industry. Beyond his professional roles, André champions Open Source solutions and is an active member of pioneering standardization committees, shaping the future of e-mobility. He is deeply vested in Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) discussions and leads an ISO 15118-20 task force, aiming to integrate Distributed Energy Resource (DER) capabilities into the international standard. Dennis Schulmeyer LADE GMBH Founder & CEO Dennis Schulmeyer is a trained electrician and IT entrepreneur. Ever since he electrified his skateboard as a kid, he’s been driving meaningful application and forward-looking development of technology, spanning areas like smart living, corporate infrastructure, education, and many more. In 2012 he installed his hometown‘s first public charging point for electric cars at his private house in Mainz. Eight years later, he founded LADE to realize and implement the ideas he had developed since then, which is to utilise EV batteries for optimised renewable energy consumption. This includes technologies like the first AI-based energy and charging management as well as development and research of bidirectional solutions. Today, the company offers an all-in-one system for energy management and EV charging. Enabling easy installation, operation, and use, the system couples renewable energy production and e-mobility to benefit both. With its AI-based Green Charging, LADE is the first provider introducing time as a dimension of automated energy and charging management, which can be applied to bidirectional charging as well. Leveraging this factor at scale, the system allows for cheaper, carbon-free mobility while simultaneously advancing efficiency of green energy production.

Webinar on Capabilities and Applications of Digital Phased Array Radar Technologies

MS Teams:

IEEE Young Professionals Germany presents a Webinar on the Capabilities and Applications of Digital Phased Array Radar Technologies Speaker: Prof. David Schvartzman at the University of Oklahoma School of Meteorology, affiliated with the ARRC. Date: Friday, May 5th, 2023. 18:00-19:00 (CEST) Language: English Join Link: Abstract: Because of the confluence of previous development projects, technological readiness and reasonable cost, scientific need, and opportunity created by the eventual replacement of parabolic-reflector-based radars, now is the time to strongly consider Phased Array Radars (PARs) for atmospheric remote sensing. Unique and flexible capabilities offered by PAR technology have the potential to improve weather radar products, making PAR technology an attractive candidate for the next generation of weather radars. Although PAR technology was initially conceived in the early 1900s, tremendous advancement of the technology was motivated by the need for advanced air defense capabilities during World War II. Over the past few decades, this technology has greatly matured in the context of air surveillance and defense applications, making PAR technology more accessible to other applications. Key PAR capabilities that support the needs of advanced weather surveillance include the ability to almost instantly steer the radar beam to an arbitrary direction within the scan sector (i.e., beam agility), the flexibility to dynamically redefine the sampling parameters for each beam position in the scan, and the ability to digitally form multiple simultaneous beams in different directions. Nevertheless, considering that dual-polarization capabilities are a non-negotiable requirement for a future network of weather surveillance radars and the challenges associated with combining these technologies, the feasibility of producing high-accuracy dual-polarization PAR observations has to be investigated. This important question has recently gained attention in the research community, and scientists have begun investigating the implementation and calibration of dual-polarization technology on PARs. This talk will focus on the current developments in phased array radar technology, polarimetric radar calibration methods, and the use of phased array radar technology for atmospheric science applications.


IEEE Germany YP Webinars on Quantum Computing by Zhen Luo

IEEE Young Professionals Germany presents Webinar on Microwave-Based Design and Physical Implementation of Superconducting Qubits Speaker: Zhen Luo, PhD Student at TU Munich & Fraunhofer EMFT. Date: Friday, March 31st, 2023. 13:00-14:00 (CEST) Join Link: Abstract: Quantum computers are at the forefront of a technological revolution that promises to substantially increase computing power beyond what is currently possible with classical computers. In particular, quantum computers have the potential to surpass classical computers in various fields, including factoring integer numbers, simulating quantum systems, and solving optimization problems. In numerous leading qubit technologies, such as superconducting qubits based on Josephson junctions, microwaves are crucial in various aspects of quantum computation. This includes qubit state initialization, superposition, entanglement, general manipulation, and readout, which are necessary for implementing quantum algorithms. Additionally, classical electronic control systems based on microwaves that allow for scalable, multi-channel, synchronous stimulus response measurements with low-latency feedback, may be the critical component needed to eventually achieve practical quantum computers. This presentation focuses on the microwave-based design and physical implementation of superconducting qubits with a brief discussion of underlying physics. The key parameters of a superconducting qubit system will be emphasized, and simulations using HFSS will be utilized to enhance the understanding of microwave engineers. The talk will conclude with a discussion on the future prospects and challenges associated with superconducting quantum engineering.
