Energy Efficiency in Smart Buildings through IoT Sensor Integration
Keynote Speech, Malaviya National Institute of Technology

Internet of Things (IoT) deployments offer a much higher value proposition if these can function in the context of smart buildings. Such advanced information and communication technology (ICT) applications in commercial buildings, schools, libraries, shopping centers, etc. offer low cost but highly effective monitoring and control opportunities.  Sensors deployed in key locations can monitor the building environment in real-time, collect information for intelligent decision making, and facilitate various services. An IoT sensor platform has been developed that provides a unified communication platform which can integrate information from disparate sources and provide one control hierarchy.

Global Electric Power Sector: Engaging with Environmental Issues
Invited Talk, French National Academy of Technology

China, US, India, Japan and Russia are the top five countries in terms of electricity generation capacity. Between them they had a total capacity of 3,650 million kW in 2016. In terms of fuel sources for electricity coal, natural gas, hydro, nuclear, renewables and oil provided 38.3%, 22.9%, 16.3%, 10.2%, 9% and 3.3% respectively in 2017. This means almost two-thirds of the global electricity production came from fossil fuels in that year. This is reflected in about 10 billion tons of CO2 from electricity generation or about a third of the global production.

Role of the Smart Grid in Facilitating the Integration of Renewables
Invited Talk, Technical University, Delft, Netherlands

With the focus on environmental sustainability and energy security, power system planners are looking at renewable energy as supplements and alternatives. But such generation sources have their own challenges – primarily intermittency.  It is expected that the smart grid – due to its inherent communication, sensing and control capabilities – will have the ability to manage the load, storage and generation assets (including renewables) in the power grid to enable a large-scale integration of distributed generation. In a smart grid, information about the state of the grid and its components can be exchanged quickly over long distances and complex networks.

Smart Energy Efficiency in Smart Cities
Invited Talk, IEEE Smart Cities Week 2022

A smart city relies on widely distributed smart devices to monitor the urban environment in real-time, collects information for intelligent decision making, and facilitates various services to improve the quality of urban living. The distributed network of intelligent sensor nodes, as well as data centers/clouds where sensor data are stored and shared, constitutes a smart city infrastructure. Participatory sensing plays an indispensable role in emerging initiatives of a smart city, which retrieves sensor data from groups of people or communities. The proliferation of personal mobile devices and development of online social networks make participatory sensing viable at a large scale but introduce many open problems at the same time.

Improving Academy-Industry Collaboration in Engineering
Invited Talk, World Engineering Day,  Aligarh Muslim University

All developed countries in the east and west have strong higher education programs, which are well-designed to match industry requirements. At the same time, they have programs that support global collaboration which helps with skills sharing as needed. For example, the US National Science Foundation has the GOALI (Grant Opportunities for Academic Liaison with Industry) program which supports industry participation in academic research. In the 70’s the US ran the Research Applied to National Needs (RANN) program which brought academia and industry together to meet the nation’s high-tech manpower challenges. Simultaneously US, EU and UK run the US-India, US-China, EU-China, UK-India joint research programs which require industry academy collaboration on both sides.

The Electric Power Secto in Bangladesh: Global Decarbonization Issues
35th FOBANA and AABEA Joint Seminar

The electric power sector in Bangladesh is expected to grow very fast – system peak is expected to reach 16,823 MW in 2021, then 37,024 MW in 2030 and 72,379 MW in 2041. This level of load growth will require generation, transmission and distribution support. Given the limited national expertise available, there is strong dependence on manufacturers’ reps who push for their products and consultants who are busy writing their reports. This cycle needs to be broken.

AI and Machine Learning in System Load Forecasting Research
Keynote Speech, International Conference on Smart Comp and Comm.

Forecasting is important in traffic volume management, optimum loading of mobile phone networks, managing electric power networks and managing building environmental control as a function of building occupancy levels. If we focus on the electric power system, we observe that the system operation is getting more and more complex due to the following reasons: more electrification means more demand which needs more reliable electricity requiring more efficient supply with less available margins. On top of this, the increased use of renewables causes system integration challenges. The research community needs new tools for dealing with uncertainty where artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) can be used to supplement human intelligence.  Artificial intelligence enables computers and machines to mimic the perception, learning, problem-solving, and decision-making capabilities of the human mind. These issues are highlighted in this presentation.

Role of the Smart Grid in Facilitating the Integration of Renewables
Keynote Speech, SUM

With the focus on environmental sustainability and energy security, power system planners are looking at renewable energy as supplements and alternatives. But such generation sources have their own challenges – primarily intermittency.  It is expected that the smart grid – due to its inherent communication, sensing and control capabilities – will have the ability to manage the load, storage and generation assets (including renewables) in the power grid to enable a large-scale integration of distributed generation. In a smart grid, information about the state of the grid and its components can be exchanged quickly over long distances and complex networks.

Energy Efficiency in Smart Buildings through IoT Sensor Integration
Invited Talk, IEEE Mauritius Section

Internet of Things (IoT) deployments offer a much higher value proposition if these can function in the context of smart buildings. Such advanced information and communication technology (ICT) applications in commercial buildings, schools, libraries, shopping centers, etc. offer low cost but highly effective monitoring and control opportunities.  Sensors deployed in key locations can monitor the building environment in real-time, collect information for intelligent decision making, and facilitate various services. An IoT sensor platform has been developed that provides a unified communication platform which can integrate information from disparate sources and provide one control hierarchy.
