Achievements In Research

Since 1994, ITU has built a foundation of research projects focused on finding real-world solutions to the problems of the modern world. The university’s Electrical Engineering Program has successfully developed projects that offer resolutions for diabetes management, robotics automation, and personal electricity monitoring. Our industry-relevant labs offer students from around the world the opportunity to create projects that can have a positive impact on society and instill a strong understanding of the basic principles of the program.

Research Projects


Patent Applications

  • 9417 Smart Meter Architecture
    A data communication architecture for a smart meter system comprised of a local server, a coordinator, and a plurality of smart meters in a one-to-many data communication system configuration is described.
  • 9419 Smart Meter Voltage and Current Sensing Using Optically Coupled Isolators
    A transformer-less method and system for voltage and current sensing using voltage drops across resistors is disclosed. Using optically coupled isolators, the sensed voltages in the high voltage power lines are optically coupled and electrically isolated to the low voltage circuits. The circuit designs for voltage and current sensing’s and electrical isolation are disclosed.
  • 9418 Smart Meter System Communication Methods
    An improved data packet design that can be used in a variety of data communication standards used in smart meter systems is disclosed. In an embodiment a smart meter system that comprises of a local server, a coordinator and a plurality of smart meters in the many-to-one data communication system configuration. The smart meter uses a variety of types of data packets.  The data packets contain the commands, parameters, and data for system control and data transmission. The data packet designs are disclosed for a route discovery command, a get parameter command, a set parameter command, a get data command, a reset command, a relay command, a start command, and a calibration command that are used in the smart meter system.
