IEEE Seattle Section Sponsors TrickFire Robotics Team at University of Washington Bothell
TrickFire Robotics, is a University of Washington Bothell club focused on robotics design and education by conducting hands-on projects. Each year the team travels to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida to compete in the NASA Robotics Mining Competition (RMC), in which each team is expected to build an innovative Martian mining robot.

For the past three years, TrickFire Robotics has generated several unique concepts for the NASA RMC as well as worked with the local communities to promote robotics to younger students. This summer we are focused on redesigning our robot’s digging cycle while also completely redesigning our arm to be faster and more versatile. We would like to thank the IEEE Seattle Section for their support in this effort. Without their backing we would not be on track for completing our summer goals and thus our year long competition.

IEEE Seattle Section has approved to sponsor the team for an in-cash donation to support its activity.


IEEE1584-2018 Arc Flash Calculations Update – IAS September 2019 Meeting

August 17 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm PDT

Location: 701 Pike St, Suite 1200, Seattle, Washington, 98101.

Speaker: Peter Hogan

Peter Hogan is the US. Operations Manager, Power Systems Engineering.  He has 12 years of electrical power systems experience, and currently managers Eaton’s power systems engineering group employing 90+ power systems engineers throughout the US.  Prior to his current position, he managed the field services operations in Oregon, employing 15 field services engineers in Oregon, Washington and Idaho.  He started his career in Eaton as a power systems engineer, completing over 175 arc flash studies prior to moving to management.  He has a BSEE from Gonzaga and a MSEE from Oregon State University

Abstract:

We are fortunate to offer an overview of the updated IEEE 1584-2018 regarding Arc Flash Incident Energy Analysis Implications.  In the presentation we will review the changes made as part of IEEE 1584-2018, and how it will affect how arc flash studies are completed.  You will also learn the major differences between the 2002 and 2018 standard and how the varies software providers are handling these changes.

Jobs

Seattle University

Are you interested in working with and mentoring university students on their senior capstone project? The Electrical & Computer Engineering Department at Seattle University is looking for one more person to advise for a senior design project team. As advisor, you’d mentor a team of four electrical/computer engineering students as they work on an industry-sponsored real-world design problem. The project runs from late September to early June, and requires a commitment that averages a few hours per week. Advisors will be made adjunct faculty at Seattle University and are compensated. We have projects on IoT, electromagnetics, machine learning, and robotics.
