        Conferencia de Victorino Franco, Distinguished Lecturer de la IEEE Magnetic Society en 2019, en Pamplona
        Jul 16 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

        Co-sponsored by: Cristina Gómez-Polo

        Conferencia de Victorino Franco, Distinguished Lecturer de la IEEE Magnetic Society en 2019, en Pamplona:

        Magnetocaloric Effect: From Energy Efficient Refrigeration to Fundamental Studies of Phase Transitions

        The magnetocaloric effect, i.e. , the reversible temperature change experienced by a magnetic material upon the application or removal of a magnetic field, has become a topic of increasing research interest due to its potential applications in refrigeration at ambient temperature that is energy efficient and environmentally friendly. From a technological point of view, the improvement of magnetic refrigeration systems can have a notable impact on society: a large fraction of the electricity consumed in residential and commercial markets is used for temperature and climate control. From the point of view of magnetic materials, research on this topic mainly focuses on the discovery of new materials with lower cost and enhanced performance. In addition, the characterization of the magnetocaloric effect can be used for more fundamental studies of the characteristics of phase transitions.

        I will cover an overview of the phenomenon and a classification of the most relevant families of alloys and compounds. I will analyze possible limitations for the optimal performance of the materials in magnetic refrigerators, including hysteretic response and cyclability. Regarding phase transitions, I will present a new method to quantitatively determine the order of thermomagnetic phase transitions using the field dependence of the magnetic entropy change. For second-order phase transition materials, I will show that critical exponents can be determined using the magnetocaloric effect even in cases where the usual methods are not applicable. In the case of first-order phase transitions, more details about their hysteretic response can be obtained using T-FORC.

        Distributed learning and signal processing algorithms by Dr. Anna Scaglione @ City: Tonala
        Jul 16 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

        Co-sponsored by: Ing. Carlos Vega

        This talk will introduce peer to peer algorithms for distributed computation and inference. 
        We will start from the Average Consensus (AC) primitive, its convergence properties over deterministic and random networks and then introduce the Distributed Sub-Gradient (DSG) and the Alternating Direction Method of Multipliers (ADMM) methods. The applications of these algorithms to distributed computation tasks such as hypothesis testing, least square approximations, will be highlighted throughout the talk.

        Jul 16 @ 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm

        Georgia Power Preparations and Lessons Learned from Super Bowl LIII. The discussion will turn around the lead- time preparations that accompany this DHS Level 1 security event. The electrical system was groomed for multiple critical venues. Liaisons were assigned to various command centers. The storm center was established proactively; Incident response team was activated. They developed an operations plan drawing from plans used by utilities for similar events. Mike will discuss their approach to operations planning (e.g., conservative operations, maintenance restrictions, scenario switching/checks). He will provide an overview of the facility security assessment approach. Overall preparations took place over about 15 months.

        Next-Generation Smart Grids: Synchronized and Democratized (SYNDEM) Smart Grids

        Power systems are going through a paradigm shift. The centralized large facilities are being replaced by millions of widely dispersed non-synchronous relatively small renewable or alternative power plants, plug-in EVs, and energy storage units. Moreover, the majority of loads are expected to actively take part in the grid regulation in the same way as suppliers do. In this lecture, the SYNDEM (meaning synchronized and democratized) grid architecture, together with its technical route, to enable this paradigm change will be presented. It will be shown that the synchronization mechanism of conventional synchronous machines, which has underpinned the power systems for over 100 years, can continue playing its fundamental role in power systems. It will empower all power electronics-interfaced suppliers and loads to behave like virtual synchronous machines so that they can take part in the regulation of system frequency and voltage, in the same way as conventional synchronous machines do. This will unify the integration and interaction of all players with the grid. It will also release the communication infrastructure from low-level control and open up the prospect of achieving autonomous operation for power systems. This holistic solution could considerably enhance the stability, scalability, operability, security, reliability and resiliency of the next-generation smart grid.

        Distributed Algorithms for Principal Component Analysis by Dr. Anna Scaglione @ City: Zapopan
        Jul 16 @ 11:00 pm – Jul 17 @ 1:00 am

        Co-sponsored by: Dr. Gilberto Ochoa

        Many data analysis algorithm in array processing and machine learning rely on Principal Component Analysis (PCA) as basic primitive. Distributed PCA algorithms are useful when the data are acquired by a network of sensors, or when the data are split over several servers due to storage limitations. Such algorithms can harness local communications and network connectivity to overcome the need of communicating and accessing the entire array locally, but the way the different datasets are divided across the network informs the algorithm’s design and affects its performance limits. The talk will explain how one can decompose the problem of computing the principal components in general, by classifying the methodologies to perform distributed PCA on different datasets, and discussing their performance and their applications in the context of distributed data acquisition systems.
