The Energy Efficiency Conference was held at UTN Buenos Aires
The conference had seven presentations, four were carried out by research professors of the Electrical Engineering degree program, two by postgraduate students of the Master of Engineering with a Specialization in Quality, and one by students.
On May 27, the first Energy Efficiency Conference was held at the Auditorium of the UTN Buenos Aires Campus premises. The objective of the event was to disseminate the advances in the research lines of the Research and Development Projects (PID) carried out by the Department of Electrical Engineering.
“The research project of the team who organized the event is called “Optimization of Energy Efficiency in Organizations”. “As the degree of progress in the PID is already very important and we had developments to disseminate, it was decided to carry out this First Energy Efficiency Conference,” explained Eng. Pablo D’Angona, School’s teacher.
In addition, the UTN Buenos Aires’s Science, Technology and Productive Innovation Office financed the event through the Travel and Events Call, and the Department of Electrical Engineering collaborated with the administrative and coordination tasks.
The conference had seven presentations: four were carried out by research teachers of the Electrical Engineering department, two by postgraduate students of the Master of Engineering with a Specialization in Quality, and one by students.
D’Angona clarified that, although the Conference was about Energy Efficiency, the Low Voltage Smart Networks project, or Smart Grid, also participated. Energy projects in Quality and some of the undergraduate works on Efficiency and Lighting were presented. In addition, the School’s teacher presented a work “on Energy Efficiency through the Analysis of Electric Variables, using a test case”.
Eng. D’Angona considers this Conference was “an important step. It adds a lot to the Electrical Engineer. Maybe we should have done it before. But now we are in a position to demonstrate that it can be taken to the field of application.”
The event was intended for students, teachers, graduates and professionals in the field of Electrical Engineering.
“We want to thank the School, which as usual provided us with the place and technical support and all possible solutions so that we feel comfortable to organize a good event,” concluded D’Angona.
