CONGRATULATIONS! TEAM PH WINS SCHNEIDER ELECTRIC’S GO GREEN IN THE CITY GLOBAL CHALLENGE
Two 5th year BS Electronics and Communications Engineering from the Ateneo de Manila University, Lorenz Ray Payonga (alumnus of Marcial O. Ranola Memorial School) and Alyssa Tricia Vintola (alumna of Ramon Teves Pastor Memorial Dumaguete Science High School) landed first place in Schneider Electric’s “Go Green in the City Global Finals” held on June 26 – 29, 2013 in Paris, France. They bested out of 25 teams from different countries like France, Germany, Russia, Brazil, Turkey, India, China, USA, Poland, Singapore and Indonesia. Go Green in the City is an international case challenge funded by Schneider Electric, a specialist in energy management, to encourage business and engineering students to design ideas and find solutions for better optimization of energy and power.
Team Philippines presented their project entitled Oscillohump in front of a panel of judges comprised of top executives of Schneider Electric. The Oscillohump is an alternative energy solution to harvest energy from road humps. It uses the simple concept of electromagnetic induction as its theoretical background. Whenever vehicles pass over the Oscillohump, they press springs which plunge magnets into solenoids that will generate power to charge a battery. The battery is then used to power DC loads such as LED street lamps, traffic lights, or CCTV cameras and excess energy may be fed to the power grid.
The Team Philippines’s entrywas also chosen from over 14 entries from other East Asian countries like Indonesia, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam during the East Asia finals. Their idea bested other proposals based on the merits of design and creativity, innovative thinking, feasibility, cost effectiveness, energy efficiency, and social impact. Dr. Reese Macabebe from the ECCE Department and Engr. Homer Ilagan from Schneider Electric Philippines acted as their mentors and led them to their championship in the Global finals.

The School of Science and Engineering is pleased to announce that a team from the Electronics, Computer and Communications Engineering (ECCE) Department, Team ECCE, won 2nd PLACE in Project Synergy at the SYNERGY: EEE Summit 2012 held in Melchor Hall, UP Diliman on September 8, 2012
Project Synergy is a Project Proposal competition and the Title of the team's Entry was OPTIMIZED POWER DISTRIBUTION USING AN INTERACTIVE IP-BASED SMART GRID NETWORK AMONG THE UTILITY, APPLIANCES AND CONSUMERS
The team was composed of
Benjz Gerard Sevilla
Angela Carmela Aguilera
Janiz Amasoli Suyko (all 4-BS ECE majors).
Their Coach was Mr. Jose Claro Monje, Assistant Professor.
SYNERGY: EEE Summit 2012 was an event organized by UP ERG to gather EEE students from various colleges and universities to engage in a 3-day activity where they can learn, compete and realize the importance and relevance of Electrical and Electronics Engineering in the country. It aimed to bring to reality the theories and numerous possibilities being taught to the students within the halls of the academe.
Project Synergy is the main event of the 3-day endeavor. This event involved MERALCO, the sponsoring company, which presented a problem that needed to be solved by EEE teams in a given amount of time. The goal was to tap the creativity and innovativeness of EEE students in addressing a need that requires their expertise and come up with a project that would be helpful to our society. The projects were evaluated based on the attractiveness of the business model combined with the technological aspects and economic benefits of the proposed project. Students worked on their ideas and presented their proposal on the culminating day.
