Member eNewsletter - July 2022

The objective of the IEEE-IES Inter Student Branch Chapter Competition 2022 is to encourage Student Branch Chapter activities and attract Student membership with IEEE-IES.

This competition will focus on presenting research works from Student members. Student Branch Chapters are encouraged to submit their own project achievements.


The aim of the special section is to provide a timely opportunity for researchers and engineers to share their latest findings on the development of advanced high frequency MV power electronic systems and control techniques for DER.


Dr. Mohamad Arnaout, on behalf of the Lebanese Chapter, recently invited Dr. Mo-Yuen Chow to deliver a Distinguished Lecture entitled "Smart Battery Gauge and SoC/SoH/SoF estimation." This lecture was sponsored by the IEEE IES Distinguished Lecturer program.


The IECON 2022 Conference will be held 18 to 21 October 2022, in Brussels, at the SQUARE Conference Center (Belgium). The 48th Annual Conference of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society is focusing on applications, manufacturing and theoretical concepts of advanced Industrial Electronic Systems.


IEEE ONCON 2022 is the 1st Annual Online Conference of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society (IES), focusing on the advanced theory, concepts, and applications of advanced Industrial Electronic Systems. ONCON Conference is scheduled to take place online 9-11 December 2022.


Technical Committee on Sensors and Actuators (TC-SA) seeks new sensors and actuators for human support technologies in daily life and a wide variety of productions. Human support technologies enable new man-man/man-machine communications to have a comfortable life and to support aged peoples. The coverage fields of the TC-SA include haptics and force control, new sensing structure and new actuation system, fault tolerance of sensor and actuator for control applications, sensing system and Actuator for precise control, robot sensing systems and more.

Sliding mode control (SMC) has been a very popular control technology due to its simplicity and robustness against uncertainties and disturbances since its inception more than 60 years ago. Its very foundation of stability and stabilization is built on the principle of the Lyapunov theory which ascertains asymptotic stability. In the 1990s, a novel class of SMC, called the terminal sliding mode control (TSMC), was proposed which has been studied and applied extensively, giving rise to a robust control with tunable finite-time convergence delivering fast response, high precision, and strong robustness. In recent years, interest in this particular control technology has been increasing. This paper provides an overview of the state of the art of the TSMC theory and its applications, and postulates key technical issues and future challenges.
