Hall: Main-Virtual Hall

Session Chairing

Prof. Khaled Zehar - November 21, 2021, 10:00+03 - 10:30 +03

 

Talk Abstract:  Global penetrations of renewable energy sources (RES) into primitive grid system have been rapidly increasing to achieve energy support. This has paved a new era for many modern techniques to increase the power management and to provide advanced consumer services. One such service that can strengthen a Smart City is a Smart Grid. It is an advanced technology electrical grid that provides variety of operations and energy measurement techniques which are efficient, reliable, economically viable and sustainable. Moreover, the digital technology that allows for two-way communication between the utility and customers, and the sensing along the transmission lines is what makes the grid smart. This adds flexibility, reliability, quick responsiveness, and security to the system. There are various benefits associated with a Smart Grid. A smarter grid will have resiliency against disturbances. Owing to the two-way interactive capacity, the Smart Grid will allow for automatic rerouting when equipment fails, or outages occur. Hence, it exhibits self-healing and automatic restoration properties. Also, the advanced metering infrastructure presented by smart grid, aids in reducing peak demands, hence lowering electricity rates, and providing transparency in the system. Thus, "Smart meters", will allow consumer to see how much electricity is used and its cost. In addition, Adaptive islanding detection, improved remote control and monitoring, de-regulated market etc. are feasible with a Smart Grid. A Smart Grid opens numerous opportunities for integration of RES, customer owned ‘distributed generations' when traditional grid is incompetent in supporting consumer's electricity demand. Basically, it aims to achieve demand response so that load levelling can be implemented. Therefore, Smart Grid can be termed as the backbone of a Smart City which can revolutionize an ageing infrastructure by making the system more consumer friendly, digitized and manageable to satisfy electricity demand of present and future generations.

Intelligent Parking System for Smart Cities

Keynote Speaker

Dr. Khaled Eskaf

Intelligent Systems, Montreal, Canada.

Arab Academy for Science Technology & Maritime Transport (AASTMT),

Alexandria, Egypt

Hall: Main-Virtual Hall

Session Chairing

Prof. Mohab Mangoud - November 21, 2021, 10:30+03 - 11:00+03

 

Talk Abstract: The Smart Parking solution is among the most implemented and fastest growing Smart City solutions in the world. Several entities have already begun to realize the considerable benefits of automated parking technology. These include airports, universities, shopping centres, and city garages. Smart parking is possible because the Internet of Things enables the connection, analysis, and automation of data collected from devices. A smart parking solution uses low-cost sensors, real-time data, and mobile applications to monitor parking availability. In order to automate and decrease the time spent manually searching for the optimal parking floor, spot, or even lot, we need to automate the process. Depending on the solution, it may also include a full range of services, such as online payments, parking time notifications, and even car searching for very large lots. There can be many benefits associated with parking solutions, both for the users and the lot owners. The following are some of the perks of a parking lot conversion: Optimized parking, Reduced traffic, Less pollution, and Improved service. A smart parking solution would be a great investment for any city government or company. In the United States, there are approximately four parking spaces for each vehicle, and they still cannot find a space for parking. It is imperative to implement a well-planned, convenient, and global parking solution as the world population continues to grow and urbanize.

Talk Abstract: Computer vision is cutting edge technology and it finds an interesting application in real world applications such as "Smart cities". Advances in computer vision technology enable us to monitor various things and connect people and places within the city with real time data and information. It can be used in a myriad of ways, and new applications are being continuously designed and developed as per requirement. Some of the most recent and impactful applications are in transportation, law enforcement and health and safety. Application in transportation: Cameras connected to streetlamps and traffic signals can be used to monitor traffic flow and movement of pedestrians. This data can be interpreted using complex algorithms to determine the most efficient traffic signal patterns in real-time. The result is an optimization of the flow of traffic and the reduction of congestion, saving of electricity in absence of traffic, safety and comfort of passengers, reducing accidents, finding availability of parking spaces. Use in law enforcement: to monitor activity on streets and determine where issues, altercations, or accidents may be taking place. It allows for unprecedented advancements in traffic monitoring, tracking suspected vehicles, fixing causes of accidents, ease of navigating cities in real-time, and law enforcement surveillance even in remote inaccessible areas. Use in health and safety: Personal protection tools like life jackets, helmet, mask, PPE kit, measurement of temperature of people in group, presence of people 24/7, emergency services in crisis environment, parking compliance, presence of key person like driver of vehicle are some applications of health and safety monitoring using computer vision.

Hall: Main-Virtual Hall

Session Chairing

Prof. Ahmed Abdalla Yousif - November 23, 2021, 09:30+03 - 10:15+03

Talk Abstract: The increasing rate of population, rising living standards and comfort demands have caused a significant rise in the energy demand for space air conditioning. According to the International Institute of refrigeration, about 15% of the total electricity produced across the globe is being used for furnishing the air conditioning and refrigeration loads. Conventional vapor compression-based cooling systems use non-natural working fluids and refrigerants like chlorofluorocarbon (CFC), hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC), or hydrofluorocarbon (HFC), having high global warming and/or ozone layer depletion potentials. A solar-assisted cooling system is a very promising concept due to a natural match between available solar irradiance and the need for cooling since both reach their maximum during summer days. Solar cooling systems can be broadly classified as electrically driven and thermally driven cooling systems. Solar electric cooling employs solar photovoltaic cells to power a conventional vapor compression cooling system. Solar thermal cooling systems, on the contrary, use solar thermal collectors to drive a heat-driven cooling system, such as based on absorption, adsorption, and/or desiccant cooling technology. The majority of the solar cooling systems installed worldwide are based on absorption chillers energized by non-tracking solar thermal collectors, i.e., flat plate, evacuated tube, and/or CPC type solar collectors. Due to the overall complexity of thermal and hydraulic design, solar cooling systems require much more effort and time during the planning phase when compared to conventional cooling systems. Also, economic factors such as high initial cost and longer pay pack periods are the key barriers to its widespread use. However, the use of solar energy in tri or poly generation systems i.e., for cooling, heating, and/or electricity generation can substantially alleviate the economic drawbacks.


About Prof. Abdul Waheed Badar: Dr. Abdul Waheed Badar obtained his BSc and MSc in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Engineering and Technology (UET) Taxila, Pakistan, in 2004 and 2006, respectively. He completed his Ph.D. in the area of solar thermal engineering from Institute of Energy Engineering, Technical University of Berlin, Germany in 2012. He is currently serving as Associate Professor in Mechanical Engineering department at HITEC University Taxila, Pakistan. Over the past 9 years, he has taught a wide range of courses in the field of Mechanical Engineering at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. He has been involved in the field of solar thermal engineering for more than 14 years. His research domain encompasses solar thermal collectors, solar heating, and thermally driven solar cooling technologies. More precisely, he has been involved in the heat transfer and thermodynamic-based analytical modeling, simulation, development, and parametric analysis of various solar-based thermal systems/components. In some cases where available theories are non-existent or inaccurate to be used in analytical models, he has the experience of developing and performing real-time experimentation and/or using numerical-based simulation tools such as TRNSYS, ANSYS, etc. He has authored over 20 research papers in international peer-reviewed scientific journals and conferences. He has also secured several research grants from national and international organizations. He is an active member of the International Solar Energy Society (ISES) and American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).
