16th International Conference on Electromechanics and Robotics "Zavalishin's Readings" (ER(ZR)-2021)

St. Petersburg, Russia, April 14-17, 2021


The conference was established as a tribute to the memory of Dmitry Aleksandrovich Zavalishin (1900-1968) – a Russian scientist, corresponding member of the USSR Academy of Sciences, professor, doctor of technical sciences, honored worker of science and technology of the RSFSR, founder of the school of valve energy converters based on electric machines and valve converters energy.

The first conference was organized by the Institute of Innovative Technologies in Electromechanics and Robotics of the St. Petersburg State University of Aerospace Instrumentation in 2006 and is timed to the 65th anniversary of the Institute. The conference is being held for the sixteenth time and conceptually transformed, mastering new scientific directions, involving scientific and educational organizations of the whole world in its ranks, and relying on the concept of society digitalization.

The purpose of the conference is the exchange of information and progressive results of scientific research work of scientific and pedagogical workers, young scientists, graduate students, applicants and students in the field of: automatic control systems, electromechanics, electric power engineering and electrical engineering, mechatronics, robotics.

In this year, the conference is organized together with XV International Conference “Vibration-2021. Vibration technologies, mechatronics and controlled machines” and VI International Conference “Electric drive, electrical technology and electrical equipment of enterprises“ in St. Petersburg State University of Aerospace Instrumentation (SUAI, St. Petersburg, Russia).

Lecture Title: Monitoring Condenser Bushings by Frequency Domain Spectroscopy (FDS) and Statistical approach.

Abstract: The dielectric frequency response (DFR) or the frequency domain spectroscopy (FDS) measures the tangent delta and insulation systems' capacitance over a wide frequency range. Due to the rich information that gives about insulation systems, nowadays, it is used for condenser bushings maintenance, especially moisture content detection in bushings' condenser core. However, it is still considered a new method for condenser bushings, and there is no standard method to interpret the results. Moreover, results interpretation is highly dependent on a human expert. It can be possible to set criteria for result interpretation using statistical indices. In this way, the human errors in the result interpretation process can be minimized.

Lecture Title: Multi-function integrated electromagnetic component for renewable energy.

Abstract: The global trend is renewable “green” energy, the components of which should be as reliable and simple as possible. Device manufacturing technologies aim to optimize, reduce weight and size, and improve durability. Based on the multifunctional integrated electromagnetic element invented by S.G. Konesev, new types of generators for wave and wind power are being developed and researched. Also on the basis of MIEC, secondary power supplies are being developed for all types of renewable energy sources due to the fact that the created component can simultaneously perform the functions of an inductor (inductor), capacitor and transformer.

Lecture Title: Parallel structure manipulation mechanisms in robotic surgical systems and vehicle simulators.

Abstract: The article discusses the features of constructing manipulation mechanisms for surgical operations that ensure the constancy of the point of entry of the instrument into the working area. Three schematic diagrams of a manipulator for surgical operations have been developed. For promising additive technologies in conjunction with MSTU named Bauman, a five-axis technological robot of a parallel-sequential structure for spinal surgery is being developed. For training systems (simulators) that serve to train operators of ground and air vehicles, technical solutions have been developed that provide an imitation of movement on a slippery road or an imitation of a "spin".
