Prof. Ian Robert McAndrew, Dean of Doctoral Programs

Capitol Technology University, Maryland, USA

Title: Unmanned Aerial propulsion systems at high altitude

Abstract: The use of propellers at high altitude has challenges and technical difficulties. This paper addresses how low speed aerodynamics can offer possibilities where propellers can be effective and efficient without the need for heavy and expensive power units. The theory and experiments show a unique approach to high altitude flight. 

Bio: A very highly qualified academic with extensive experiences in industry and internationally recognised researcher with extensive teaching experience at all levels of education. Conference and journal publication of 62 over 28 years, six books and numerous Keynote presentations around the world. Has supervised in excess of 50 students to their doctoral completion in USA, UK, Germany, Greece, Italy, Jordan, Singapore, Malaysia, UAE, Kenya, South Africa. Extensive consultancy experience internationally.

Speech Title: Novel Adaptive Neural Network Sliding Mode Control for Active Power Filter 

AbstractThis keynote speech presents an adaptive sliding mode controller based on a novel double hidden layer recurrent neural network algorithm to improve the performance of harmonic current compensation and system robustness of an active power filter. The double hidden layer neural network can improve the accuracy and generalization ability of the neural network, reduce the number of network weights and accelerate the network training speed owing to the strong fitting and presentation ability of two-layer activation functions. The feedback neural network plays the significant role in possessing associative memory and rapid system convergence. Simulation and experimental results demonstrated that the satisfactory performance of proposed controller under both dynamic and steady state operations, including robustness, fast response, and small overshoot for harmonic suppression
