IEEE seminar – “Understanding lightning and electromagnetic interference”

Our new IEEE Fellow, Professor Rajeev Thottappillil, will guide us through lightning and electromagnetic interference, including impacts on the society, transportation, telecommunication and power systems:

Lightning is a propagating electrical discharge whose path length is measured in tens of meters to several kilometers, carrying peak currents up to a few hundred thousand Amperes, and that occurs in a fraction of a second. Lightning creates electromagnetic interference with electronic and electrical systems. This lecture reviews important properties of lightning, and principles of protection of large distributed electrical systems from the deleterious effects of lightning. In addition, investigations on susceptibility of civilian infrastructure – such as railways and telecommunications – to intentional electromagnetic interference is also discussed.

An IEEE Fellow is the highest grade of membership and is recognized by the technical community as a prestigious honor. Prof Rajeev Thottappillil is with KTH Royal Institute of Technology, where he holds the Chair in Electric Power Engineering and Design. He is also the Director of the research center SweGRIDS – Smart Electric Grids and Storage.

Prof. Thottappillil has an outstanding background: He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering 1992 from the University of Florida, USA. In 1995 he moved to Sweden and the High Voltage Research Institute at Uppsala University, where he became Professor in 2000. Electromagnetics of lightning, effects of lightning on electrified railways, and intentional electromagnetic interference were the major research topics during this time. In 2008 he moved to KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.

He has published more than 200 scientific articles related to lightning and electromagnetic compatibility, which also include 5 book chapters and over 90 journal publications. In 2009 he was a co-recipient of the Richard B Schulz award for the best IEEE EMC Transaction Paper in year 2008.

We wish you very welcome to this very interesting IEEE evening!

Please feel free to invite or bring a friend, e g a colleague or maybe a potential IEEE member.

For planning reasons, we kindly ask you to pre-register on a preliminary basis to the AGM and the seminar, by sending a mail to our Secretary as soon as possible, preferably before 16 March. Please indicate who is attending, e g yourself and a friend, as well as any special diet. Please also mail us if you cancel your attendance.

Welcome !

Nobel Lectures in Physics

This year all the three Nobel Laureates in Physics are IEEE members. Professor Isamu Akasaki has the Life Fellow Grade.

The Nobel Prize in Physics 2014 was awarded jointly to Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano and Shuji Nakamura "for the invention of efficient blue light-emitting diodes which has enabled bright and energy-saving white light sources".

This invention will be of paramount importance for reaching a sustainable society.

Uppsala University respectively Lund University in co-operation with IEEE Sweden Section have the honor of arranging two Nobel laureate lectures with Professor Hiroshi Amano. You are invited to attend cordially!

Please, have a look at the enclosed pdf-placards!

Professor Amano's lecture in Uppsala will take place in Siegbahnsalen, which is situated in Ångströmslaboratoriet at Lägerhyddsvägen 1. The simplest way to get there is by taking a cab from Uppsala Central station. You can also take bus # 20, which departs from Kungsgatan on the north side of the station.

The title of Professor Amano's lecture in Uppsala is "Development of blue LEDs and their future prospects".

The lecture will start Saturday on the 13th of December at 10:30 A.M. Place, take your seat no later than 10:15 A.M! The lecture room has a little more than 200 seats.

No advance commitment is needed.
