IEEE AP/MTT Columbus Presentation

Title: Ocean remote sensing with HF radars and application to tsunami detection

Dr Charles-Antoine Guérin 
University Of Toulon, France

Date: 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM, Friday, May 19th, 2017

Place:  ElectroScience Lab, The Ohio State University, MRC Conference Room #132, 1330 Kinnear Road, Columbus, OH 43212

Abstract: Radar remote sensing is a powerful means for characterizing the ocean surface, both at large scale and high resolution. This includes a variety of instruments with different purposes, working under various configurations (e.g., airborne, space-borne, ground based) and electromagnetic frequencies. The so-called « oceanographic radars » are shore-based remote sensing systems working in the « High-Frequency » (HF) frequency regime (3-30 MHz) that are used for monitoring ocean currents, waves, and measure wind direction.  They can provide quasi real-time synoptic maps of ocean  surface currents over a large fields of view, up to a few hundred miles from shore. Today, they are employed routinely to characterize the coastal oceanic circulation at high spatial (~ 1 km) and temporal (~ 1 hour) resolution.

An emerging application of oceanographic radars is early tsunami detection, which takes advantage of the far-range and wide coverage capabilities of these instruments. The detection is based on measuring the additional surface current induced by the arrival of a tsunami wave train and can advantageously complement classical warning systems, which rely on seismic or bottom pressure sensors.

In this lecture we will recall and highlight in a simple way the main physical mechanisms underlying measurements of ocean currents as well as the state of art in tsunami detection in this context. We will present a novel technique that has been developed at the University of Toulon (France) in collaboration with the University of Rhode Island (USA, RI) to improve the tsunami detection performance of oceanographic radars. Some preliminary results based on measurements at an actual HF radar system will be presented.

Bio:Charles-Antoine Guérin received the B. Eng. degree from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace, Toulouse, France, in 1994 and the Ph.D. degree in Theoretical Physics from the University of Aix-Marseille, France, in 1998. He is now professor and researcher at the University of Toulon, France, with the Mediterranean Institute of Oceanography (MIO). He is specialist  in  physical modeling of ocean remote sensing. His current interests include the characterization of the sea surface with microwave radars and tsunami detection with HF radars. He is currently a distinguished visiting international scholar at URI and a Fulbright scholar for the academic year 2016-2017.

IEEE Columbus PES: Presentation on Electricity Markets & Variable Generation

Title:  A Power Market Design Integrating the View of Stochastic Producers

Please join the IEEE Columbus Power & Energy Society (PES) to hear an informative lecture from Professor Antonio Conejo of The Ohio State University. 1.0 hour of CPD credit will be offered. The event is free to Columbus-area IEEE members, students, or those interested in joining.
 
Abstract:  The goal of this presentation is to reexamine the design of electricity markets in light of the fundamental changes that electric power systems are undergoing, while accounting for the two decades of experience we have with restructured electricity markets. This includes: the increasing use of non-dispatchable, uncertain, and variable weather-dependent renewable energy; the use of distributed energy resources; and novel uses of electricity by end-use consumers.

  • Date: 18 May 2017
  • Time: 05:30 PM to 07:00 PM

LOCATION

  • 630 Morrison Road, Gahanna, Ohio 43230

  • 6:00-7:00: Technical presentation and audience discussion

SPEAKER:
Dr. Antonio J. Conejo of The Ohio State University. Dept. of Electrical & Computer Engineering

Biography:
Antonio J. Conejo, professor at The Ohio State University, OH, US, received the B.S from Univ. P. Comillas, Spain, the M.S. from MIT, US and the Ph.D. from the Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden. He has published over 190 papers in SCI journals and is the author or coauthor of books published by Springer, John Wiley, McGraw-Hill and CRC. He has been the principal investigator of many research projects financed by public agencies and the power industry and has supervised 19 PhD theses. He is an IEEE Fellow.

Joint IEEE Columbus Computer and Communications Society Chapter Presentation

NOTE: This Presentation has been Canceled for Monday, 8 MAY 2017 but will be rescheduled for a future date so Please Check Back.

When:  Monday, 8 May 2017

Time:  5:30 – 6 PM Networking (light refreshments); 6 to 7 PM Presentation

Where:  Whitehall Branch (new) of the Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML), Meeting Room # 1,

4445 E. Broad Street, Columbus (Whitehall), OH 43213-1357

Parking:  Is FREE and available behind the Library at the above address.

Presentation:  Linked Data

Abstract:  Linked Data is about using the Web to connect related data that wasn’t previously linked, or using the Web to lower the barriers to linking data currently linked using other methods.  It is a method for exposing, sharing, and connecting pieces of data, information, and knowledge on the Semantic Web, also known as the Web of Data, using standard Web technologies such as HTTP, Resource Description Framework (RDF) and Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs).  The Semantic Web is all about making links between datasets understandable not only to humans but also to machines so that a person or machine can explore the web of data.

An Introduction to Linked Data and current research will be presented.  Specifically, two prototypes being developed that demonstrate how linked data can be leveraged in an end-use interface and how to convert legacy data into Linked Data.

Presenter:  Jeff Mixter, Software Engineer, Online Computer Library Center (OCLC) Research, Dublin, OH

Speaker Bio:

Jeff Mixter works with Jean Godby (OCLC Research) and Kenning Arlitsch (Montana State University) on an IMLS funded grant project to improve the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) of institutional repositories and digital collections. He holds Bachelor’s Degrees in History and German from The Ohio State University as well as Master’s Degrees in Library Information Science and Information Architecture/Knowledge Management from Kent State University.

RSVP to Robert Walston via E-Mail by 2 PM on Monday, 8  May 2017.

IEEE Columbus PES & OSU Undergraduate Chapter Program

The IEEE Columbus Power & Energy Society & The Ohio State University Undergraduate Chapter Present:

Distributed Energy Resources: Definitions, Growth Trends, and Grid Impacts (click for flyer)

When: Thursday, Mar. 23rd, 2017

Where: Ohio State University
Dreese Lab #260
2015 Neil Ave
Columbus OH 43210

Abstract:  Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) are continuously increasing in the power systems. In some states, DERs have grown much faster than others and they pose a variety of planning and operational challenges. For example, Hawaii is already observing reserve power flow from Distribution to Transmission and California had to develop a flexible ramping product to address the fast generation ramping needs at sunset. Energy analysts project this trend of increasing DER penetration to continue and there is a strong business/policy advocacy effort to keep the momentum going. With the decreasing price of DERs and given the right incentives, the break-even point can be reached where DERs growth can explode in the AEP footprint as well. It is therefore very important to model DERs and study their impact on system loading, stability, transients, and voltage/frequency regulation at high penetration levels.

Please RSVP by March 21st at https://goo.gl/forms/o7eCz7lnSBvTGLC52 or contact the PES Chair at cbus.pes.chair@gmail.com
