The Third Sports Festival for Kinetic Games at the University of Technology
Under the auspices of the President of the University of Technology, Professor Dr. Ahmed Al-Ghabban, the Control and Systems Engineering Department and the Student Activities Department at the University of Technology, in cooperation with (Al-Iraqiya Huna) team, held the “Third Sports Festival for Kinetic Games” under the title (Towards the Target). The festival was held on the campus of the university on Tuesday 7/3/2023 among three teams representing the Control and Systems Engineering Department at the University of Technology, the College of Engineering at the Iraqi University, and Al-Farabi Private College. The list of games and competitions varied, and the teams competed to get the largest number of points in an atmosphere characterized by fun, enjoyment, sportsmanship, and team play, through which the team of the Control and Systems Engineering Department was able to win by one point from the strong competitor of the Iraqi University. In a speech by Prof. Dr. Azad Raheem, Head of the Control and Systems Engineering Department, he praised the great efforts made by those in charge of organizing the festival, the importance of such activities to consolidate the relationship between students and the academic staff members, teamwork towards the goal, and the relations among the faculties of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. The festival was attended by a large audience of students to encourage their teams, and it was a beautiful day for them. Then, the festival was concluded by distributing prizes to the winners and taking photos.
The master's thesis of student Nora Nizar Kamal, specialized in Computers engineering, was discussed on Sunday, 19-2-2023 at the Department of Control and Systems Engineering. Her work was entitled:
Low-Density Parity Check Codec Power Reduction using Dynamic Voltage Scheduling
The examining committee consisted of:
1. Dr. Ikhlas Kazem Hamza / Chairman
2. Dr. Ahmed Mazhar Hasan / Member
3. Dr. Ali Majeed Hasan / Member
4. Dr. Qusay Fadhil Hasan / Member and Supervisor
5. Dr. Omar Younis Qasim / Member and Supervisor
The research presented reduces the power consumption of an LDPC encoder using a well-known efficient method of energy reduction called dynamic voltage frequency scheduling (DVFS) which is one of the most powerful power reduction strategies in CMOS circuits. This method was adopted to control and determine the optimal voltage level that enters the encoder, so as to reduce its total power consumption. The proposed system relied on a FLC fuzzy logic controller that calculates the input voltages of the encoder based on frequency values to reduce energy consumption as a coder cost.
