Talk: The 6G Wireless Networks: What to Expect and How to Excel
The demand for wireless capacity is continuously growing with the advent of the Internet-of-Everything system, connecting millions of people and billions of machines. To date, the fifth generation (5G) wireless networks are being rolled out in the world, providing a new vision to mobile communication. While 5G is still in its commercialization phase, the research on Beyond 5G (B5G) and sixth generation (6G) communication has already started ground work on innovative technologies that support the capacity growth of future networks with lower cost, energy consumption, and hardware complexity. In order to meet the stringent demands on spectral and energy efficiency, B5G and 6G will rely on new and advanced technologies ranging from cell-free massive MIMO, Terahertz band communication, pervasive artificial intelligence, ambient backscatter communications, to smart radio environments. In this talk, we discuss the basic concept of these technologies, covering the “what to expect” part, and then overview the research challenges that are seen to address their inception, the “How to excel” part.

Talk: Advances in Flux Switching Machine
Due to simple and robust structure, flux switching machines (FSMs) have been widely researched over the past few years. FSMs have double salient structure comprised of passive rotor and stator encompassing Armature Winding Slots (AWS), Field Winding Slots (FWS) and Permanent Magnets (PMs). Based on the presence of AWS, FWS and PMs, FSMs are classified into PM excited, Electrical excited and Hybrid excited. Among three categories of FSMs, Electrical excited FSMs offer lower power and torque densities whereas hybrid excited FSMs offer comparatively higher power and torque but due to presence of AWS, FWS and PMs on stator, the structure becomes highly complex and costly. Therefore, PM excited FSMs are considered competent candidates when higher torque density and power are primitive demand.
Permanent Magnet Flux Switching Machine (PMFSM) are potential candidates for brushless direct drive applications, in brushless alternating current mode, offering high torque and power density. PMFSMs housed both PMs and AWS in stator where alternate polarity PMs are sandwich between AWS. Such structure refrain PM demagnetization due to heat dissipation and impact of centrifugal force on PMs. However, PMFSM utilizes high rare-earth PM volume resulting higher machine cost and PM eddy current losses. Moreover, there is significant flux leakage from the stator which degrade electromagnetic performance analysis.
Based on structure, FSM’s are divided in to inner rotor FSM, outer rotor FSM, dual rotor FSM, and dual stator FSM. With main concern in simple robust inner rotor topologies, several PMFSM topologies are recently studied such as E-Core, C-Core, 𝜋-shaped stator, multi-tooth, V-shaped and square envelope in literature. However, despite of the high PM volume usage and dominant stator leakage flux, E-Core and C-Core offer low overload capability, 𝜋-shaped stator is complex in manufacturing and assembling, upper apex of modulation pole of multi-tooth may saturate due to narrow width, V-shape associate mechanical and electrical loading at the base of support between the V legs whereas square envelop offer low torque density in compare with conventional PMFSM. To compensate foregoing issues of more PM usage, flux leakages, machine weight, PM cost, flux circulation and cancellation associated with PMFSM, consequent pole PMFSM structure with partitioned PM i.e., Circumferential Magnetized PMs (CM-PMs) and Radial Magnetized PMs (RM-PMs) are recently investigated.
FSM is suitable candidate for high speed application such as:
- Transportation system (EV/HEV implemented in Model S-plaid by tesla)
- Renewable energies (wind turbine applications i.e. Siemens uses PM synchronous machines)
- Aerospace industry (Multi stack axial machines in Rolls Royce aircrafts)
- Rope-less Elevators
- Electromagnetic launch technology
- Electric bicycle

Talk: Secure Emergency Information dissemination in vehicular Networks
According to a report by the world health organization, every year the lives of nearly 1.3 million people are lost as a result of road accidents around the world. To avoid such incidents, secure vehicular communication offers a promising solution. Vehicular communication includes a wide range of applications that can be broken down into two classes, i.e., safety and comfort applications. Safety applications include cooperative collision avoidance and traffic information. Comfort applications, provide value added services, such as infotainment, road conditions and environmental protection. Effective information dissemination constitutes the cornerstone of vehicular communication. The talk is based to reduce broadcast storm and secure communication that help us in the development of an effective emergency dissemination. The talk composed of a clustering technique which is one of the promising solutions to reduced overhead as well as intelligent reflecting surface to secure the communication. The technique is based on the mobility metrics to strengthen the cluster formation, avoid overhead, maintain the message reliability, and secure communication in a high mobility scenario.
