What is IFEC2013?
The International Future Energy Challenge (IFEC) is an
international student competition for innovation, conservation, and
effective use of electrical energy. The competition is open to college
and university student teams from recognized engineering programs in
any location. The 2013 competition addresses two broad topic areas,
which Sharif University of
Technology, the most prestigious university in Iran, has
organized a team for the topic "Low
power off-line light-emitting diode (LED) driver with long lifetime".
The goal is to develop an off-line LED driver supplied from universal
AC input. The input should have high power factor to avoid any
potential pollution to the grid. Additionally, the conventional
electrolytic capacitor for energy storage in the circuit should be
eliminated to improve the reliability of the LED driver.
