Future plans

These labs are not stationary and are constantly undergoing changes according to the projects developed at CEIT-IK4.
 
There are plans to extend the Power Electronics and Storage Lab to provide more power and to develop new converters and storage systems.
 
As regards the small microgrid at the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Lab, the aim is to provide it with new applications and generation and storage systems, as well as granting it its own demand control and communication systems.
 
At the Electric Machines Lab, the extension programmed will affect both the available voltage (1500 V) and the test benches available for engine and generator prototypes. There are also plans to include the possibility of testing for power transformers.
