Speaker Biography (Yen Kheng Tan)

Tan Yen Kheng received his B.Eng degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) from National University of Singapore (NUS) in 2003 and the Master of Technological Design (Mechatronics Engineering) degree jointly offered by NUS and the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in 2006. He is currently a Ph.D research scholar in the ECE Department at NUS and his main research interests include micro power generation using solar, wind, thermal and vibration energy sources, energy harvesting wireless sensor network (EH-WSN) and their associated power electronics. He has worked extensively on various parts of the energy harvesting systems i.e. ambient energy sources, energy harvesters, analog and MCU-based power (energy) management and wireless sensor nodes to correlate and optimize the design of the EH systems for real-life applications. Working prototypes are also developed to demonstrate the operation of the EH systems.
