REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED, seating is limited

 Part 1:      Transformer Design and Design Parameters

This presentation will be on the Basic of Transformer Design. The presentation will explain how a transformer designer interprets parameters such as MVA, lightning Impulse, Switching impulse, Percentage Impedance supplied by a customer. It will touch on Power rating[MVA], Core, Rated voltages, Insulation Coordination, Short-circuit Impedance, Short-circuit Forces, Loss evaluation, Temperature limits, Cooling, Sound Level .. etc. It will also explain overload and life expectancy of a transformer as well when Delta winding is needed in Wye-Wye connection.  The presentation will answer why in North America we like to regulate from low voltage side whereas in Europe regulates from high voltage side.

 Part 2:     Transformer Manufacturing Processes

This presentation will be on the Industry wide manufacturing process to build a transformer in the shop floor. Processes will cover Core Construction, Insulation, Windings, Core and Coil, Processing, Tanking, Testing and Shipping.  Some of the hold-points during the processes will be explained as well what a customer should look into while doing factory inspection.  The presentation will also cover reconnection both in LV and HV, LTC Tap changer both in tank and separate tank, Lead works.

 ABOUT THE MEETING:   

As evidenced by the US Presidential announcement of the  “BRAIN” initiative nearly a year ago and the increasing awareness of both the short team and long term implications of head injuries such as traumatic brain injury that can range from sever to mild concussions, the importance of understanding how to diagnose and treat brain injury has never been more highly visible to the public.  While, much of the common press on neurologic research has focused on the role of emergency clinicians and neurologists, engineers are playing an ever increasingly important role in the discovery of new diagnosis and treatment methods for brain injury.  In this talk Dr. Beyette will discuss his experience in the development of novel technologies that are currently being developed for acute neurologic care.  Specifically he will feature research results from two device technologies that have shown significant promise in the diagnosis and treatment of brain injury.  First he will show results associated with robotic neuromotor testing and the possibility for using this technology for diagnosis of mild traumatic brain injury.  Second, he will discuss his efforts to build portable EEG systems that can be used in the rapid diagnosis of seizures.  Finally, he will show how these technologies may be adapted to areas that move beyond acute care and into personal health monitoring applications.” 

ABOUT THE PRESENTER:  

Dr Fred Beyette Jr.,  Graduate Progaram Director, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computing Systems (EECS). 

After earning a PhD  from Colorado State University in 1995 and completing a 1 year post-doc at the University of Sheffield in the United Kingdom, Dr. Fred R. Beyette Jr. joined the faculty at the University of Cincinnati Department of Electrical Engineering and Computing Systems in 1996.  He is currently performing research in areas related to design and implementation of Mixed Technology Embedded Systems with a particular focus on the development of novel point-of-care medical technologies with applications in many clinical and non-clinical health monitoring/assessment situations.  His primary accomplishment over recent years has been to establish the Point-of-Care Center for Emerging Neurotechnologies (POC-CENT).  This center includes efforts to identify unmet clinical needs in the area of acute neurologic care, provide support for technology developers who are working to build point-of-care device that are designed to address the identified unmet clinical needs in acute neurologic care and develop educational materials and training programs that help clinicians, scientists, engineers, designers and all interested technology developers understand the clinical, technical and commercialization issues associated with the design, implementation, testing and commercialization of point-of-care technologies.  Dr. Beyette has been the principle investigator for the POC-CENT since its inception in October 2007.  As a well-established researcher in design, implementation and evaluation of POC technologies for acute neurologic care, he has significant expertise in the development of research programs that focus on translational activities that connect clinical practice with engineering development for clinical device technologies.  Over his 15 year academic career, Dr. Beyette’s research work has resulted in 11 patent applications, 33 research papers published in archival journals and contributed to more than 100 conference papers (including 2 invited papers) presented at national and international meetings.  He has also trained 43 students at the MS, PhD and Fellow levels.  These trainees have gone on to productive careers in industry, start-up companies, Industry R&D, academia and clinical practice.  In addition to his individual advising/mentoring activities, he currently serve as the graduate program director for the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computing Systems.  In this capacity he is responsible for oversight of ~250 graduate students in 6 graduate programs that cover 11 different technology tracks ranging from electronic materials and devices to computer/cyber security.
