IDEATHON'22

Our Partners

The IEEE Power & Energy Society, in partnership with MathWorks, has the pleasure to announce the ideathon’22.

The program provides an opportunity for students to learn, imagine and develop projects related to the energy domain. The participation is made by small teams of University Students from the USA and Canada. During the program, participants will receive three sessions of hands-on training from Mathworks, where the essential tools for the project development will be presented and explained. Once the training period is completed, the teams will have two weeks to utilize the Mathworks tools to develop their ideas, modeling, validation, and analysis The obtained results wit be presented in a report and poster format, which will be delivered to the judges for evaluation

Ideathon’22 expects to have ten teams with up to 4 members each. Each team will be assigned an industry and a Mathworks Mentor. It is expected that the mentos can guide and answer questions from the students regarding the project approach, modeling, and performance. besides guiding them on real-world applications. The final evaluation will be based on the reports and poster presentation, and the mentors judgment

The program will be launched on July 21st at the IEEE PES General Meeting Conference, having its open call for students subscriptions promoted at the same moment. The training sessions are expected to start in the middle of September, allowing the students to have three weeks for their project development and two weeks of evaluation before completing the program in the first week of November

The Ideathon’22 hopes to deliver a complete and impactful experience to all the participants. Each participant will be able to acquire teamwork, project management, challenge management, and technical skills, capabilities that will support the participants’ professional and personal life.

The IEEE Power & Energy Society, in partnership with MathWorks, has the pleasure to announce the Ideathon’22.

The program is divided into four phases providing an opportunity for students to learn, imagine and develop projects related to the energy domain. The participation is made by small teams of University Students from the USA and Canada. 
  • Phase 1 – Open Call: Students from all the USA and Canada regions are invited to form a team and submit an abstract about the project idea that they would like to develop.
  • Phase 2 – Training: Participants will receive three sessions of hands-on training from Mathworks, where the essential tools for the project development will be presented and explained.
  • Session 1: Modeling Tips & Techniques in Simscape Electrical
  • Session 2: Modeling Microgrids in Simscape Electrical
  • Session 3: Modeling Supervisory Control using MATLAB and Simscape Electrical
  • Phase 3 – Modeling: The teams will have two weeks to utilize the Mathworks tools to develop their ideas, modeling, validation, and analysis.
  • Phase 4 – Evaluation: The obtained results will be presented in a report and poster format, which will be delivered to the industry judges for evaluation.
The Ideathon’22 hopes to deliver a complete and impactful experience to all the participants. Each participant will be able to acquire teamwork, project management, challenge management, and technical skills, capabilities that will support the participants’ professional and personal life.
 
The best team projects will receive prizes of up to $1,000!
