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.
