April 11th, 2014

Join us in this interactive session that will provide insight into how to be effective working virtually at companies. In addition to your technical skills, success in your job will depend on your ability to communicate and build strong working relationships with a global team. This workshop will focus on building trust in virtual teams as well as techniques for communicating with today’s technology. Learning techniques for communicating in virtual meetings, using email and IM will help you build a reputation as a solid team player.

Abstract – Pressure sensing is one of the most critical measurements in industrial hydraulics systems. Pressure sensing elements non linearity, temperature coefficient and sensitivity levels must be considered/compensated by a good analog front end in order to be digitized and properly compensated. In addition full span signal levels (peak to peak) generated by the sensor can be very low, in the single mili volt range, requiring low noise and high gain front ends to drive Analog to Digital Converters (ADC). This presentation covers analog techniques for front end design, their implementation and silicon results. Various system level analysis techniques and performance parameters are discussed as well.

You have likely been on a project where some members of the team didn’t pull their weight. How did you handle those individuals when you were working together for a grade? How will you handle it if that happens at work? How will you make sure you are not the one they are frustrated with?

PRESENTATION ABSTRACT:

Data-driven methods are based on a simple generative model and hence can minimize the assumptions on the nature of data. They have emerged as promising alternatives to the traditional model-based approaches in many applications where the underlying dynamics are hard to characterize. Independent component analysis (ICA), in particular, has been a popular data-driven approach and an active area of research. Starting from a simple linear mixing model and imposing the constraint of statistical independence on the underlying components, ICA can recover the linearly mixed components subject to only a scaling and permutation ambiguity. It has been successfully applied to numerous data analysis problems in areas as diverse as biomedicine, communications, finance, geophysics, and remote sensing.

This talk reviews the fundamentals and properties of ICA, and provides a unified view of two main approaches for achieving ICA, those that make use of non-Gaussianity and sample dependence. Then, the generalization of ICA for analysis of multiple datasets, independent vector analysis (IVA), is introduced and the connections between ICA and IVA are highlighted, especially in the way both approaches make use of signal diversity. Examples are presented to demonstrate the application of ICA and IVA to analysis of functional magnetic resonance imaging data as well as fusion of data from multiple imaging modalities.

La IEEE Power & Energy Society está celebrando sus 15 años en el recinto. Celebrando esto estaremos celebrando una actividad llamada PES Seminar Week. La misma consiste en una serie de 7 seminarios divididos en toda la semana con temas educativos enfatizados al área de potencia. Es nuestro intréres invitarlos a que nos acompañen durante esta actividad. En los actos de clausura se estará haciendo la dedicatoria formal de la actividad que será a los profesores Dr. Agustín Irrizary (primer consejero) y Dr. Lionel Orama consejero actual de nuestra sociedad. Durante todos los seminarios se estará tomando lista de asistencia y para algunos habrá comida. Esperamos contar con su incondicional apoyo para que actividades como está se sigan realizando ya que las mismas son para el beneficio común de todos nosotros.

Invite you to the following seminar:

Visita Técnica: Finca Aerogeneradores  de Santa Isabel, PR


Date: Saturday, October 26, 2013
Place: Bo. Paso Seco, Carr 153 km 2.4 Santa Isabel, PR 00757
Time:  09:00 AM — 11:00 AM
Speaker: Ing. Sergio Luna
Fee: Free of charge

Abstract:
Santa Isabel is a 101 MW project located on the south coast of Puerto Rico. The project consists of 44 2.3 MW Siemens turbines and commenced commercial operations in late 2012. 100% of its electricity generation including environmental attributes is sold to PREPA under a long term power purchase agreement. Santa Isabel is connected to the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority transmission system and is Puerto Rico’s first commercial wind power project. The project is located on approximately 5,500 acres of land owned by the Puerto Rico Land Authority, which is actively farmed by private operations and subject to a long-term lease arrangement.

Registration:
Registration is limited (45 persons). For registration, please visit IEEE vTools.Meetings

“Colegio de Ingenieros y Agrimensores de Puerto Rico
Capítulo de Mayagüez”

and the

Power and Energy Society / Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
Western Puerto Rico Section

Invite you to the following seminar:

Reconstrucción de Accidentes Eléctricos y de Subclase Iluminación

Date: Wednesday, October 30, 2013
Place: Casa Capitular de Mayaguez del CIAPR (Calle Los Ingenieros – Esquina Calle Obispado, Bo. Miradero, Mayagüez)
Time:  06:00 PM — 10:00 PM
Fee: Free of charge

Abstract:
Se expondrá el uso de los fundamentos de ingeniería en la práctica forense, en las materias pertinentes de electricidad y el subtema de la iluminación, la ciencia de materiales y su relación al diseño en los casos expuestos. Los Colegiados podrán optar por extender sus prácticas hacia el campo forense, uno donde el país tiene necesidad de servicios por lo escaso de la oferta.
