Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 2022 3rd International Conference on Materials, Physics, and Computers (MPC 2022) will be organized by the International Engineering and Technology Institute and co-organized by NanoFemto Lab, Canada; the Center for Advanced Diffusion-Wave and Photoacoustic Technologies (CADIPT), Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, University of Toronto, Canada; the Hohai University Institute of Physics, China; the Interactions, Dynamics, and Energetics in the Atmosphere (IDEA) Team, Pennsylvania State University, USA; the Integrated Energy Solutions for Entrepreneurs (IESE) Program, Pennsylvania State University, USA; the Wuhan University of Technology Nano Key Lab, China; and the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Northern Illinois University, USA. This conference will be held from July 30 to 31 2022 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (online conference over Zoom). A material is a substance or a mixture of substances that make up an object. Materials can be pure or impure, living or inanimate substances. Materials can be classified according to their physical and chemical properties or according to their geological origin or biological function. Physics is a natural science that studies matter; its basic components, movement, and behavior in space and time; and the related entities of energy and force. A computer is a digital electronic machine that can automatically perform a series of arithmetic or logical operations (calculations) through programming. Modern computers can execute a general set of operations called programs. These programs enable computers to perform a wide range of tasks. Materials, physics, and computers are the three important cornerstones of the development of modern society; thus, research on these three aspects is very meaningful. This conference invites international scholars to make conference reports and present their latest research results, aiming to become the flagship academic conference in the field of materials engineering, mechanical engineering, and food technology. MEF will provide a first-class academic exchange platform for academicians, professors, researchers, teachers, and students around the world. The meeting will be carried out in the form of conference reports, group reports, and paper publications. At the same time, to recognize outstanding manuscripts, the conference will host a best paper award. This conference Special Issue is focused on a wide range of the theoretical aspects and the applications of materials, physics, and computers.

Topics of interest for submission include, but are not limited to:

  • Materials physics, materials analysis, and characterization;
  • Materials science and physical chemistry of materials;
  • Metallic materials: structure, properties, technologies;
  • Non-metallic materials: structure, properties, technologies;
  • Composite and powder materials;
  • Building materials: structure, properties, technologies;

This paper presents a systematical and progressive appraisal of the technology since the inception of AC-AC conversion, which is seen to be an indispensable and vital for the advancement of the Solid State Transformer (SST) in a distribution system. Special attention is given to the concepts/topologies and architecture of the SST, the DC-DC conversion devices in the isolation facet, the inversion gadget in the bridge arrangement and their integration in the development of an economically viable and efficient SST design. For the purpose of this article, a number of research papers, research proposals and research dissertations/studies have been accessed that mostly cover work related to this device and brief discussions about several aspects. The various sections of this article are correspondingly devoted to the review of SST design and its various configurations, the significant stages of the DC-DC converter from a transformer-specific perspective and lastly the high-frequency inverter. In critical appraisal, the SST in a three-stage perspective, the dual half-bridge converter and high-frequency half-bridge inverter are the most viable and promising means, offering tremendous advantages over other configurations with emphasis on economy, high flexibility and control performance; thereby weighed as the most workable, practical and realistic solutions. The foremost potential application of this expedient includes a vital component of the power grid. Full article
