Keynote 1 (G. Prigent) : Mahua Room Silicon-based integrated tunable systems for next generation of communication networks

Gaëtan Prigent (INPT ENSEEIHT, France)
Chair: Nooritawati Md Tahir (Universiti Teknologi MARA, Malaysia)

The mobility and Internet of Things (IoT) explosion has led to a severe wireless spectrum shortage which led to seeking new ways to alleviate the bandwidth crunch. Globally, wireless devices are becoming pervasive and consume network capacity and bandwidth at accelerated rates. Fourth generation (4G) networks based on the Long Term Evolution (LTE) offers significant upgrades over 3G in terms of data throughput. However, despite expected performances of future LTE-Advanced, with continuous increase in the mobile data traffic one has to put a significant long term crunch on both network capacity and bandwidth.

Indeed, mobile networks will increasingly become the primary means of network access from person-to-person and person-to-machine connectivity. It will provide the fundamental infrastructure for building smart cities which will push mobile networks performances and capability requirements to their extremes. It will be a key component of the networked society and will help realize the vision of essentially unlimited access to information and sharing of data anywhere and anytime for anyone and anything.

Next generation of mobile network (5G) will therefore not only be about mobile connectivity for people. Rather, the aim of 5G is to provide ubiquitous connectivity for any kind of device and any kind of application that may benefit from being connected. Thereby, It will provide wireless connectivity for a wide range of new applications and use cases with vastly different characteristics and requirements, including wearables, smart homes, traffic safety/control, and critical infrastructure and industry applications, as well as for very-high-speed media delivery. To do so, the capabilities of 5G wireless access must extend far beyond those of previous generations of mobile communication. Therefore, deployment of novel generation of communication systems requires necessary breakthrough in advanced-RF domain. This will bring benefits to the efficient and flexible usage of spectrum.

One of the most important keyword in the design of future systems in the 5G era is flexibility. One has to develop systems with multiple standards which differ from center frequencies, bandwidth and number of useful bands. The design of tunable systems is henceforth primordial in future generation of communication, as it is the case since many years at RF frequencies. It is therefore a key issue for cost and size reduction. Indeed, the use of tunable systems minimizes the number of needed equipment, since only one function can address all or part of the useful bands. Moreover, such systems have to adapt their data rates depending on the demand, and they will contribute to consumption significant reduction. Thereby, the study of implementation of agile sub-mm-wave front-ends will be in the next future a booming topic of interest. However, for future generation of systems, the frequency deviation will be important as the operating frequencies may vary from a few tens of GHz to beyond 100 GHz. Thereby, the challenge is to be able to control the system performance regardless of its operating frequency and to maintain acceptable level of electrical performances over the entire tuning range.

Within this context, one has to define novel architectures for tunable systems as well as novel topologies and design techniques for tunable functions especially for passive functions such as filters whose specifications are more and more constrained in terms of selectivity and insertion loss. Solution will be proposed in SiGe based CMOS technologies which provided good electrica performance for active devices, in terms of FT/Fmax of transistors, but has poor quality factor for passive implementation.

Keynote 2 (N. Mariun) | Mahua Room: Integration of Distributed Renewable Generation (DRG) to the future Smart Grid (SG)

Norman Mariun (Universiti Putra Malaysia)
Chair: Nooritawati Md Tahir (Universiti Teknologi MARA, Malaysia)

While central station electric power plants have long provided the bulk of electricity in all industrialized and most developing countries, the traditional need for reliability of electricity supply is now being supplemented by the need for security and environmental sustainability. As many developing countries begin to industrialize to provide jobs and better living conditions to its citizens, the requirements for reliable, secure and environmentally sustainable supply of electricity becomes paramount. While fossil fuels have been the primary sources of electricity for the last one hundred years, their cost, uneven global distribution and global warming potential are encouraging world leaders to look for alternatives in renewable solar resources, which are distributed. But distributed generation sources have their own challenges - primarily intermittency. Many believe 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 in the power grid to enable a large scale integration of distributed generation.

A smart grid will look more like the Internet, where information about the state of the grid and its components can be exchanged quickly over long distances and diverse networks. This will allow the grid integration of sustainable energy sources, such as wind, solar, off-shore electricity, etc. for smoother system operation. But in order for this to be possible, the electric utility will have to evolve and change their ways of operation to become an intelligent provider of these services. This lecture introduces the operational characteristics of renewable energy sources, and various aspects of the smart grid - technology, standards, regulations and data security - which are needed to effectively integrate these sources of electricity into the grid. This lecture also addresses the interplay among distributed generation and storage, conventional generation and demand response to provide an efficient operational strategy in the context of the smart grid.

Plenary1 (Nursuriati Jamil): Storytelling Speech Synthesis for an UnderResourced Language

Gaya Room 1

An under-resourced language may be defined as a language that lacks the presence on the web and has limited electronic resources for the advancement of Human Language Technology (HLT) such as inadequate digital corpora, few transcribed speech data, and pronunciation dictionaries. Languages from rapidly developing countries such as Malay, Bengali, Vietnamese and Urdu are among the languages categorized as under-resourced languages. HLT research in the Malay language is tremendously increasing over the years since it started in 2000 with text-to-speech (TTS) synthesis moving to automated speech recognition (ASR). TTS in the Malay language has also progressed to expressive speech synthesis in the last five years adding emotions such as happy, sad, fear and angry. Our proposed work further extended emotion speech synthesis for storytelling of Malay folklores. In this paper, an improved pitch contour formulation is introduced by modifying the existing pitch contour sinusoidal function. The aim is to convert neutral speech into storytelling speech in the Malay Language. Our speech datasets (neutral and storytelling speech) were recorded by a male and a female professional speaker. They contain 116 speech sentences, 1,164 words, and 2,732 syllables. For storytelling speech, 124 prominent syllables are detected using Prosogram tool. These prominent syllables are further categorized into six clusters of pitch contour. Distance measurements using one minus Pearson correlation is done to assess the similarity of the proposed pitch contour formulae to the original storytelling pitch contour. The proposed pitch contour sinusoidal function is also compared with the existing pitch contour function used by previous work. The results showed that the proposed pitch contour formulation performed better than the existing pitch contour formulae.

Plenary2 (Amran Radzi): Power Quality : Detection and Mitigation Techniques of Harmonics

Gaya Room 2
Chair: Mohd Khairul Mohd Salleh (Universiti Teknologi MARA & Applied Electromagnetic Research Group, Malaysia)

In the last few decades, electrical power systems have been struggling with various power quality problems. Among all power quality problems, harmonics adversely affect electric utilities and end-users economically. Due to the additional power loss generated by harmonics, electric utilities need to invest lot of money to purchase or develop effective monitoring and mitigation tools. Hence, it reduces their profit. On the consumer side, they need to spend more to repair or replace the affected equipment. Thus, it disrupts their expenses and daily life.

Detection or estimation of harmonics for voltage and current signals is one of the measurements recommended by the power quality standards. A number of works based on fast Fourier transform (FFT) have been reported over the past years. However, inability of those works to respond immediately to any change of measured harmonics has influenced the researchers to explore artificial neural network (ANN) for its simplicity, generalization, learning ability, and better capability to respond immediately. However, combining them may provide better advantages. Therefore, the first part of this tutorial will address significant works on improving estimation of harmonics as to benefit monitoring works later on.

Meanwhile, shunt active power filter (APF) has been recognized as the most effective and versatile filter, in compensating numerous harmonic currents simultaneously. Furthermore, it can also be employed to compensate reactive power, for power factor correction. Nevertheless, its operation relies on the effectiveness of reference current generation and dc-link voltage control. The second part of this tutorial should cover recent works on improving performance of shunt APF, especially by incorporating aritificial intelligence techniques in both reference current generation and dc-link voltage control algorithms.
