PSU

SDG 13: Climate Action

Prince Sultan University giving much attention on bringing the environment pollution free and contribute towards climate change. As an important stakeholder, PSU contributes towards the achievement of sustainable environment and campus through various events, practices, and research. It regularly organizes events and exhibitions for students and employees to promote the climate change.

The strong commitment can be witnessed from the type of support provided in events related to clean energy, EV and the sustainable practices followed for sustainable PSU campus to promote measures for climate change and research contribution etc. Moreover, the solutions and impacts of climate change is an important topic is endorsed in our curriculum and outreach.

IMPACT EXAMPLE

The Prince Sultan University is involved in several industrial collaborations that are leading the way in the search for alternative energy sources. One such example comes from our Renewable Energy Lab, who are in cooperation with Koncar Power Plant Electric Traction, Croatia for a collaborative project on microgrids test bench for EV charging and renewable energy to combat climate change.

A Novel Deep Learning Based Model for Tropical Intensity Estimation and Post-Disaster Management of Hurricanes

Authors: Jayanthi Devaraj, Sumathi Ganesan, Rajvikram Madurai Elavarasan, Umashankar Subramaniam

The prediction of severe weather events such as hurricanes is always a challenging task in the history of climate research, and many deep learning models have been developed for predicting the severity of weather events. When a disastrous hurricane strikes a coastal region, it causes serious hazards to human life and habitats and also reflects a prodigious amount of economic losses. Therefore, it is necessary to build models to improve the prediction accuracy and to avoid such significant losses in all aspects. However, it is impractical to predict or monitor every storm formation in real time.
