Antenna and RF Shielding Fundamentals Workshop

June 15 @ 11:45 am - 3:00 pm

This is a FREE workshop that begins with a complimentary lunch.  All IEEE members and guests are welcome to attend, but advance registration is required to ensure adequate seating and catering.  Click here to register on line now! TECHNICAL PROGRAM: Antenna Factor – A Deceptively Simple Parameter - Abstract:  Antennas used for EMI measurements are employed as transducers that convert field strength to antenna terminal voltage. While the concept is quite simple, the reality is that antenna factors are affected by a…

Studying Earthquake Faults: From the Sky and with Boots on the Ground

June 16 @ 10:00 am - 10:00 pm

California’s earthquake faults take up the motion of the Pacific and North American tectonic plates. Tectonic deformation of the Earth’s crust can be measured using the Global Positioning System (GPS), differenced radar images, and topography measured from small UAVs (drones). Combining the measurements with computational models makes it possible to understand past earthquakes and current earthquake fault behavior. The measurements show triggered slip on networks of faults in southern California following moderate to large earthquakes. A significant portion of the…

SF Power and Energy Society Technical Presentation June 20th, 2018

            Title:  Improving safety/reliability during critical switching operations in substations                                                               Presenter:  Mr. Nan Liu - Principal Consultant, Youtech US ABSTRACT : Human errors when performing switching can have serious consequences as illustrated in the 2011 Southwest blackout. The blackout put grid reliability and public safety at great risk.  It cost millions in penalties to utilities involved and much more in terms of societal impacts. Similar errors have resulted in personnel injuries or even deaths.…

Ground Fault Mitigation by Using Resistance Grounding

June 21 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The presentation will cover Resistance grounding as a relatively simple and easy to apply method in radial distribution systems at Low Voltage and at high voltage up to 5 kV. When high resistance grounding is applied, a Neutral Grounding Resistor (NGR) is used at the supply transformer with an alarm system to detect and indicate the ground fault. This method has been in use for many years and is widely applied. In high voltage systems 15 kV to 36 kV…

Using Gamma-Ray Emissions to Determine Used Fuel Condition While in Dry Cask Storage

June 21 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Dry storage casks for spent nuclear fuels were first employed in 1986, and it is estimated that 4500 dry storage casks will be loaded by 2025. Because of the increased service life and rapid growth of loaded dry casks, a concern has been raised about the safety and integrity of their internal structures. No internal sensors to monitor the structures placed in the casks and the cask are not easy to open owing to their highly radioactive waste contents. Therefore,…
