Description

The installations objective is bringing together and enhancing the different investigation lines that are being carried out in the different departments of the UCT, which work in re- newable energies, power management, DC/DC and DC/AC converters design, electric and thermal propulsion.

The installation can be subdivided in four dif- ferentiated parts:
  1. Electric engines/generators testing bank (up to 100 kW).
  2. Three-phase virtual network (50 kW).
  3. Programmable Interface of connection to the electric grid (20 kW).
  4. Testing bank for batteries.
 


[1] It is understood that managed power that is able to manage the control of the infrastructure. In laboratories without physical equipment (simulators, systems) This field does not apply.
[2] Microrred function if there are loads in the same location, generators and optionally storage, with integrated management of the whole.

Future plans

Through the planned actions, capacities will increase in the following investigation lines:
  • Testandcharacterizationofelectricenginesusedinvehiclespropulsion.
  • Simulate, verify and validate last generation batteries, electric engines and electric propulsion sets. The design of the laboratory favours the modularity and expansion of the testing systems.
  • Simulation, verification and validation of the electric propulsor set use in hybrid vehi- cles or as electricity generating stages in the electric vehicles.
  • Testing and characterization of batteries. Is necessary to have batteries charging and discharging process performance models, which allow predicting their autonomy, based on the existing different typologies.
  • Testing and characterization of power converters: DC/DC and DC/AC. These converters will be in charge of the energy management inside the vehicle, the engines control and batteries charging process. Performance verifications, voltage regulation, operation stability.
  • Energy management in power systems. Is intended to emulate the real behaviour that the power electric system presents and his response to the connection of electric load or generation sources. Likewise, the performance of electronic equipment to typical dis- turbances, like voltage dips, will be characterized, studying his behaviour, sensibility and his output set- points modification. In parallel, it will be possible to analyse the behaviour of power systems in which its power demand curve oscillates daily between positive and negative values, with the implications that such behaviour arises from the point of view of power flows and alterations of voltage values at the nodes of the system.
  • Analysis and characterization of solar photovoltaic installations for autonomous vehicles in long duration missions.
 
The nature of the designed facilities is not merely investi- gator it also may serve to support manufacturers of: elec- trical machines, heat engines, batteries, power converters for automotion or renewable energies and of course electric vehicles of any kind.
