2019 IEEE 7th Palestinian International Conference on Electrical and Computer Engineering

24 - Apr - 2019

The Faculty of Engineering has convened two international conferences under patronization of APPEAR Programme which funded by ADC. In partnership with the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Vienna, the Electrical and Computer Engineering Dep.  has kicked off the 2019 IEEE 7th Palestinian International Conference on Electrical and Computer Engineering (PICECE).

This conference looks forward to joining scientists and researchers in one place to exchange ideas and information among each other, presenting the recent studies and recommendations in computer and electricity fields.  It has issued, through five sessions, many topics such as communication, energy, applications of electrical energy, renewable energy and its impact on society, and the trend of using new methods in teaching energy and electronic courses.

About 40 research papers have partaken in this platform. One of which handled the topics of Coherent Passive Optical Network Technology for 5G which discussed the biggest challenges of implementing 5G, the demands of 5G transport system in terms of Bandwidth and Latency requirements and System Architecture. Finally, it focused on the simulation results, namely BER vs OSNR and the budget of Power.

The first session entitled, " Communication Track Power & Energy Track; it discussed several headlines such as High Gain, Wide Bandwidth and Low Power Transimpedance Amplifier Using DTMOS Transistor, Switching Mechanism for Off-Grid Hybrid Power System with Storage Battery, Sizing of a Photovoltaic LED Street Lighting System with PVSYST Software.  Whereas, the second session was about Computer software Track, in which different titles have been elaborated, on of which was Graph-based Growing self-organizing map for Single Document Summarization (GGSDS).

The third session propped up the field of Renewable Energy Socio-economic Effect Tracks as rich titles demonstrated the investigation of Energy Harvesting Using Solar Water Heating and Photovoltaic System for Gaza and Montreal QC Climates and the PV Diesel Hybrid Energy Supply for Nasser Hospital at in the Gaza strip. In addition, participants showed the development of Energy through Wind Simulation and Design: A case Study of Hebron Wind Farm in Palestine. The fourth sessions displayed the track of Computer Networking and Security, which included seven scientific papers. One of these papers shined lights on the ways of Simulating the Performance and Output Measurements of Modeled Photovoltaic (PV) Inverter.

The results of the 2019 IEEE 7th Palestinian International Conference on Electrical and Computer Engineering (PICECE) recommended that designing zooming devices with high-coefficient and wide bandwidth is essential in modern communication systems. Furthermore, designing energy-powered lighting devices is essential for developing countries which have hindered of energy problems. More importantly, developing communications systems for fiber optics to cope up with the requirements of the fifth generation for communications system.Besides, provide new renewable sources to as larger numbers of people as possible in marginalized areas in a way that brings up different types of renewable energy, such as wind and solar energy, together. In terms of research, participants recommended the employment of research for serving larger data, and thus, using research in the development of industrial intelligence; namely in the field of advanced communications and electronics. On educational level, they suggested the notion of teaching methods integration under the title of Maker Movement to be applied in the university education.
