Work Experience 2007 – 2011VENEZUELAN CORPORATION OF ALUMINIUM (CVG VENALUM)Puerto Ordaz – Venezuela Internship Program as Research and Development EngineerJune 2011 – September 2011 Investigation and Development Department of CVG VenalumDuring the current period carried out studies in the following areas:Electromagnetic Theory and Induction Heater principles • The utility of the induced current to the design an induction furnace taking into account aspects such as: skin depth, frequency, electric power, etc. • Understanding of how the magnetic field is applied to generate induced electric current as well as how the electric field is linked with the magnetic field developing Maxwell equations. • Development of a build process of Induction Heater by means of equations and procedures of construction.Induction Heater Control System • Carried out with the concept of the feedback loop to control the frequency which is given by the AC/DC Inverter. • Controlled design of the loop based on Phase-locked loop (PLL) to maintain the maximum transferred power. • A wide review about the different architectures of inverters.In addition to the study, carried out the following activities: • Determination of the electric power which must be used to melt the aluminium adhered to the siphon by means of an average of volume measures in order to design the whole system • Study of the production of aluminum in CVG Venalum (Proposed by the Tutor to understand the integral process) • Testing of the power switches and studies about theirs to select the most indicated to the application, taking in count the price, the efficient, and the durability • Developed PCB design for each module: Power supply, Inverter, Control, Tank Circuit using Altium Release 10 and Isis Proteus, plus ScketchUp 8.
• Development of Laboratory practices • Aid to students with weakness in this field EducationPolytechnic Experimental National University Antonio Jose de Sucre(UNEXPO), Puerto Ordaz - Venezuela.Bachelor of Science in Electronic EngineeringThesis Project: Design and Construction of an Induction Heater to project an Induction Systemcapable to release the aluminium adhered on siphons of CVG Venalum AwardsOutstanding academic performance during the university career.
