Conference "Computational Problems of Electrical Engineering" CPEE 2018
The 19th international conference was held in Slowakia, Bánská Štiavnica from September 9 - 12, 2018. Conference was co-organized by the Department of Electrical Engineering Theory, WBU. Faculty of Electrical Engineering was representing by Václav Kotlan, Iveta Petrášová, Pavel Karban and Lenka Šroubová.
Conference participants had the opportunity to see posts in the poster section entitled "Induction Heating-assisted Laser Welding of Stainless Cylindrical Pipes" and "Shape and Topology Optimization of High Power Converter Busbar." Selected posts will be published in IEEE Xplore.
The conference contributed to the creation of new contacts but also to the development of partnerships with already cooperating universities. We have the opportunity to talk with prof. Ladislav Janoušek (University of Žilina) and prof. Jack Starzynskim (Warsaw Polytechnic), who mainly discussed the possibilities of Ph.D. students and foreign internships. In addition, contact with Dr. Juraj Makarovič (University of Žilina), who is the Leader of the Solar Team project (http://www.solarteam.uniza.sk/). This is an interesting project for students from different disciplines (technology, design, economics, marketing etc.) who are trying to design and implement a solar-powered car completely and succeed in a race across Australia.
