Title: SPACE MICROGRIDS – NANO SATELLITES, LUNAR BASES AND CLOSED ECOSYSTEMS
Abstract and Speaker’s Background
This talk will begin by introducing the control of microgrids, the parallelisms with the human brain and the research for possible sources of inspiration in last frontiers of neuroscience. Then, control in electric power systems of satellites and space platforms will be presented, showing approaches that are extended from terrestrial microgrids and explaining the differences and challenges when it comes to apply them out in the space. Further, multi-microgrid systems will be discussed for moon craters in future lunar manmade bases. Finally, the extension from the hierarchical control of microgrids to bioastronautics in the control of closed ecological systems to support with oxygen, water, and food to the astronauts and creating thus creating new ecosystems for the moon and future mars bases.
Josep M. Guerrero (S’01-M’04-SM’08-FM’15) received the B.Sc. degree in telecommunications engineering, the M.Sc. degree in electronics engineering, and the Ph.D. degree in power electronics from the Technical University of Catalonia, Barcelona, in 1997, 2000 and 2003, respectively. Nowadays he is working towards the M.Sc. Degree in Psychobiology and Cognitive Neuroscience at the Autonomous University of Barcelona.
Since 2011, he has been a Full Professor with the Department of Energy Technology, Aalborg University, Denmark, where he is responsible for the Microgrid Research Program. From 2019, he became a Villum Investigator by The Villum Fonden, which supports the Center for Research on Microgrids (CROM) at Aalborg University, being Prof. Guerrero the founder and Director of the same center (www.crom.et.aau.dk).
His research interests is oriented to different microgrid frameworks in applications like microgrid clusters, IoT-based and digital twin, maritime microgrids for electrical ships, vessels, ferries and seaports, and space microgrids applied to nanosatellites and closed ecological systems. Prof. Guerrero is an Associate Editor for a number of IEEE TRANSACTIONS. He has published more than 700 journal papers in the fields of microgrids and renewable energy systems, which are cited more than 70,000 times. During seven consecutive years, from 2014 to 2020, he was awarded by Clarivate Analytics (former Thomson Reuters) as Highly Cited Researcher with 50 highly cited papers. In 2021, he received the IEEE Bimal Bose Award for Industrial Electronics Applications in Energy Systems, for his pioneering contributions to renewable energy based microgrids.

Title: Big Data Analysis: Theory and Applications
Abstract and Speaker’s Background
Big Data has become a reality that no one can ignore. Big Data is our environment whenever we need to make decision. Big Data is a buzz word that makes everyone understands how important it is. Big Data shows a big opportunity for academia, industry and government. Big Data then is a big challenge for all parties. This talk will discuss some challenges of Big Data analysis as well as Data Science, the scientific issues behind Big Data. Then, this talk will provide several real-life Big Data Applications.

Title: Bio-impedance measurement systems
Abstract and Speaker’s Background
Impedance measurement is one of the most promising topics in research fields because of its wide range of applications such as, fruits growth monitoring, plants modelling, damage detect, and other applications, in this chapter we will discuss one of the embedded measurement devices for bioimpedance.
Bio-impedance is the ability of a biological tissue to resist an AC current. Bio-impedance measurement values for biological tissue depends on many parameters such as tissue type, age, time variation, composition, water content, tissue structure, tissue damage and any other parameter that may affect the biological tissue. Bio-impedance body analysis has been widely used in biomedical applications to estimate body parameters such as fat content, fluid content, total body water and lean body mass. Recently, the ability to relate between electrical and physical properties of food products has gained focus on research. This approach will reduce the investigation time and increase the accuracy compared to conventional chemical methods.
Different attempts have been applied to address a relation between physical and electrical properties. Bio-impedance analysis in food industry is relatively a new method for monitoring food properties change and its relation to food quality. Many attempts performed to study the relation between electrical and physical properties. In this tutorial, we will learn about different systems architectures used for bioimpedance measurements, performance parameters and measurements techniques.
