Speech Title: Study on Grid Synchronous Performance Optimization and Cascade Fault based on Complex Network Theory
With the development of economy and the increase of electricity demand, more and more renewable energy such as photovoltaic and wind power generations are connected to the grid, the power grid has become increasingly complex, and the stability of the power grid has received increasing attention. The stable operation of the power grid requires each generator to work in the frequency synchronization state of 50Hz or 60Hz, and the loss of synchronization of the power grid and the failure of some links will cause cascade faults, resulting in large-scale power outages, therefore, the synchronous performance and stability performance of the power grid are closely related, and the research on synchronous performance optimization is of great significance. This report mainly uses complex network theory to model the topology of the power grid, and the second-order Kuramoto model the node dynamics of the power grid, and proposes several methods for optimizing the synchronous performance of the power grid from the aspects of topology and power distribution. Based on the community discovery method of complex networks, an improved power grid zoning method is proposed, and several different cascaded fault attack strategies are compared and studied. Finally, some recommendations were made for future research.

Speech Title: Electromobility and Autonomous Vehicles A Case of Study for Teaching Engineering
A significative increase of interest has arisen for decades on the need of transportation using alternative energy sources. Solar, electrical, thermal, wind and more sources have been used in different ways to provide energy for our needs. New regulations on emissions and fossil fuels all over the world has been detonating an exponential growth in countries all over the world. On the other hand, autonomous vehicles are becoming normal among us, but an imperious need of robustness and safety issues lead researchers and industrials to dedicate efforts in this sense. In this talk, topics on electrical autonomous vehicles are explored in the context of Engineering education. Challenged-based learning is used to face the students to real problems, in the study case presented we discuss different ways to teach Engineering topics using an experimental platform built in our campus, we will focus on energy management systems and autonomous navigation control algorithms.

Speech Title: Exploring Current Practices in Monitoring and protecting Kid’s Activities on Online Social Media Networks Using Artificial Intelligence Approaches
As a result of the widespread use of social media and the quick development of the internet. There are a large number of video content-sharing websites online, In this talk, I’ll be covering the content that’s shared particularly for kids and teenagers, whether its movies or video games that attract a young audience, a large number of content creators post daily vlogs on their social media channels. These movies may contain offensive material that, in the absence of parental supervision or control, could negatively impact children's development, psychology, and behaviour. Although numerous studies have focused on this issue by recommending techniques and approaches based on rating, ranking, and commenting on videos in order to demonstrate the quality, popularity, and relevance of videos, there is still a dearth of useful frameworks for parents offering guidance on children's videos. Therefore, this talk will focus on the most recent social media trends among children and the technologies available to keep an eye on and safeguard them. Thus, I will talk about New methods and approaches in the literature to monitoring and protecting kids on all online social media platforms.

Her current research interests include modelling and characterisation of underwater optical wireless channels and optoelectronic devices, modulation and coding schemes for visible light communications (VLC).

Speech Title: Underwater Optical Wireless Communications: Channel Modeling
Optical wireless communications is now seen as a potential technology for underwater applications due to its high bandwidth performance. Specifically in underwater applications, wavelengths in the blue/green region are used as they experience the lowest attenuation underwater. Despite the high bandwidth (>GHz) that can be provided by optical links, they are limited to several hundred metres only due to strong attenuation caused by absorption and scattering. One important area of research is in channel modelling and characterization where the knowledge and behaviour of the underwater OWC must be understood to design an optimized system. Numerous early studies on underwater optical wireless communications (UOWC) focus on the effect of absorption and scattering caused by dissolved and suspended particles underwater. Most works consider modeling horizontal links where the link is characterized by constant attenuation as the variability is insignificant. However, this is not valid for vertical links as the attenuation is not constant due to depth dependent variations and inhomogeneity of the medium. Thus, this talk presents the development of two models that include the inhomogeneity of the medium in modelling underwater OWC channels.

Speech Title: Mitigation of Greenhouse Emissions from Transportation Systems Through Modelling and Data
Greenhouse gas emissions from transportation systems have become a grave health and environmental concern as the rise in population and urban connectivity has caused the increase in traffic demand and congestion. Increasing the use of public transportation would become a key factor in mitigating the adverse results of vehicular emissions. In this work, we have constructed a traffic and fuel consumption forecasting framework to analyze the effects of increasing public transportation modal share on the reduction of the total average fuel consumption by daily traffic. We have successfully forecasted a fuel savings of 21% via the increase of public transportation modal share from 12% to 40%. Our results could serve as an effective guideline for policymakers in drafting sustainable transportation masterplans.
