Title: Open Source Simulations with Python and Blended Learning Approaches to Data Science and Machine Learning Education

Summary: Enterprise software for engineering is currently expensive, with few open source options available for use by electrical engineers. Python with Power Electronics aims to close this gap by providing tools to simulate power electronics and circuitry with initial uses tailored to the renewable energy industry. The lightening talk will also cover affordable techniques for learning machine learning and data science by combining online learning with in-person workshops.

Bios: Shiv Kumar (PhD) is an electrical engineer by training with over ten years of experience across renewable energy R&D and software development. Shiv Kumar is author of textbook Simulating Nonlinear Circuits with Python Power Electronics and is an instructor at Collabo Academy where he teaches Data Science & Machine Learning with Python.

Darius is a founder and CEO of Collabo Academy, an education technology that delivers blended learning at an affordable price.

  2. PRESENTERS Darius Vaillancourt Founder & CEO Shiv Kumar, PhD Data

    Science & Machine Learning
  3. MOTIVATION & OBJECTIVE ▪ An electrical engineer with over ten

    years of experience in power sector R&D, and a software/Linux enthusiast hacking away in my free time ▪ A huge gap between software for web dev, etc. and electrical engineering ▪ Software for web dev is booming with open source alternatives constantly in development and competing with each other ▪ Enterprise software for engineering is expensive, has poor performance and is closed source ▪ Felt the need for more open source in core engineering and for core engineers to get involved in open source software
  4. PYTHON POWER ELECTRONICS ▪ A free and open source circuit

    simulator for power engineers built entirely in Python ▪ Processes and solves electrical circuits ▪ External control functions can be written in Python ▪ http://www.pythonpowerelectronics.com/ ▪ https://www.facebook.com/pythonpowerelectronics
  5. PYTHON POWER ELECTRONICS Next major goal – teach Python, data

    science and machine learning to engineers for application in electrical engineering.
