The Remote Labs platforms give the institutions the possibility to overcome the growing limitations of traditional laboratories, such as limited work area, high cost of the equipment, lack of personnel, not enough time assigned to the laboratory, and mainly their unavailability at non-working hours. Remote Labs enhance the learning and training process allowing students or apprentices to have remote access to their laboratory resources without physical or time constraints and professors or instructors to bring the laboratories to the classroom and transform a theoretical and mathematical session into an experimental one.
The platform is a laboratory service which consists of a free access Web Page with all needed information, a Scheduling System for user access control, an audio and video system to see and hear what is happening in the lab, and a Practice Interface to allow the remote access to the lab practice on real, physical equipment. No matter if you are at 200 km or even 10,000 km away from the laboratory you can perform a time or frequency analysis of the motor, examine its power performance, or study the dynamic vector model of the three-phase induction motor.
During the seminar a real time connection will be done from the session seminar to several Remote Labs at Tecnologico de Monterrey. You will see an exciting and interactive demonstration of remote experiments with Three-Phase Electric Motors, Voltage Source DC-AC Inverters and Electric/Electronic Circuits. We will experiment with real equipment and components though a digital interactive interface with immediate response.
About the speaker
Dr. Manuel E. Macias holds a PhD degree in Power Electronics from the Technical University of Dresden in Germany and since 1994 he is a research professor at the School of Engineering and Science of the Tecnologico de Monterrey in Mexico. His major research areas are Power Electronics, Electrical Drives, and Innovation and Technology in Engineering Education.
Dr. Macias has designed and implemented laboratories for Industrial Electronics, Control of Electric Motors, Automation, Virtual Instrumentation, and Tele-Engineering, as well as a Virtual Reality laboratory for Automations that has been implemented in 15 campuses of the Tecnologico de Monterrey. He is in charge of a national Network of Remote Laboratories at Tecnologico de Monterrey and coordinates the Cyber-Physical Labs project for equipment of Automation, Control and Robotics laboratories. Dr. Macias led a project to set up 3 specialized Remote Laboratories for research and postgraduate courses. He is also author of a MOOC Course for Basic Principles of Electric Energy and their corresponding remote laboratory for massive use.
Dr. Macias recently led a Technology Transfer project to Hangzhou Dianzi University (HDU) in Hangzhou China, to develop a Remote Lab platform for Electric Machines and a Cyber-Physical Lab for Automation.
