▒ E-Manufacturing │ Assistant Prof. Hsieh, Yu Ming

English‧In Person

Inst. Code-Serial Number:M3-008


E-Manufacturing is advanced manufacturing that takes advantage of Internet and information technologies to efficiently integrate the Manufacturing Execution System (MES) and Equipment Engineering System (EES) within a company (intra-company integration), and the Supply Chain (SC) and Engineering Chain (EC) among member companies (inter-company integration). With e-Manufacturing, the productivity, yield, and overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) of the complete production platform can be improved, the cycles of time-to-market (T2M) and order-to-delivery (O2D) can be shortened; and further the goal of improving agility, efficiency, and decision-making for the entire semiconductor manufacturing processes can be reached.


▒ Design, Manufacture, Packaging, and Applications of Semiconductor memories │ Prof. Hus, Wen-Dung

 Program on Smart and Sustainable Manufacturing

▒ Intelligent modelling and control in renewable energy systems │ Assistant Prof. Ou, ting-chia

Chinese‧In Person

Inst. Code-Serial Number:M5-004


Promoting energy conservation and carbon reduction and increasing the proportion of renewable energy is an important development project of Taiwan's energy policy. Its planning and promotion include energy conservation, energy creation, energy storage, and smart system integration. It is expected to achieve Taiwan's sustainable energy development vision of ensuring energy security, developing a green economy, taking into account environmental sustainability and implementing social equity, as stated in the "Energy Development Agenda". Among them, solar photovoltaic generates more electricity in summer, which can provide peak electricity demand, and wind power generates more electricity in winter, which can reduce coal-fired power generation and help reduce pollution. It is in line with electricity consumption characteristics and takes into account environmental protection. In addition, the power generation technologies of the two are relatively mature. Therefore, Taiwan takes solar power generation and wind power generation as its main development projects. Recently, it has actively developed the development and application of battery energy storage and smart grid-related technologies.


▒ Introduction to Nuclear and Green Energy  │ Assistant Prof. Ou, ting-chia

English‧In Person

Inst. Code-Serial Number:M5-005


Green energy or clean energy refers to energy that does not emit pollutants. The similar definition is renewable energy (referring to renewable energy sources of raw materials, such as hydropower, wind power, solar energy, biomass (biogas), geothermal energy, ocean tide energy, seawater temperature difference power generation, etc.), Taiwan has set a goal of reaching an energy consumption fueled 30% by coal, 50% by natural gas, and 20% by renewables by 2025. In order to achieve the ambitious goal of 20% renewable energy, Taiwan has made changes in their energy policies. In the "Renewable Energy Development Regulations" of Taiwan, Renewable energy is defined as: solar energy, wind power, biomass energy, geothermal energy, ocean energy (tidal energy), non-pumped storage hydropower, domestic general waste and general business waste, etc. directly utilized or generated energy, or Other energy sources recognized by the central competent authority that can be used sustainably. In the global trend of attaching great importance to the issue of climate change and pursuing sustainable development, the application of green energy has become a key development area for all countries in the world, and it is also an emerging industry that competes with each other in the strategic layout of energy in various countries. Because renewable energy has no possibility of energy depletion, it is increasingly valued by many countries, especially countries with energy shortages. According to the latest definition of the US Department of Energy, nuclear energy is also included as one of the clean energy sources.

In recent years, global climate change and air pollution issues have sparked heated discussions on energy and power issues. In this context, replacing fossil energy power generation with green energy power generation such as wind power, photovoltaics and fuel cells (hydrogen energy) has become an important issue for power construction in various countries.
