"Zen and the Arts of Educating and Learning Resources for the First Part of the 21st Century" by Rocky Ross, Computer Science, will provide answers to questions like What do you get when you whip up a little cognitive science, a dash of learning theory, a pinch of innovative teaching methodology, a fistful of Web, a dollop of Internet, four decades of teaching, and a bushel of curmudgeon? Lots of things. Lots and lots of things. One of them, maybe, a hypertextbook.
Steve Shaw, Electrical and Computer Engineering, will present "Modeling, Degradation, and Interactions in Fuel Cell Systems." The talk will condense efforts in our group to apply techniques of control to fuel cell systems, including challenges of related lab studies, and limitations imposed by large model uncertainties. Important physical effects in cells and stacks will be reviewed and a model-based approach proposed. Preliminary efforts to conduct this study in Modelica will be presented. The talk will conclude with a roadmap for research to address outstanding questions, including opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration in the design and control of fuel cell and related energy systems.
Snacks will be provided.
