Description
This a laboratory that covers the entire value chain for the development of power storage systems to be applied in grids and in the transport sector.
 
Services offered
Developing power storage projects on contract for customers of for its own R&D purposes


[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.

OTHERS

2 x 200 L weather chambers, 1 x 350 L chamber and 1 x 600 L chamber with safety level 6, enabling cell and module tests to be conducted safely within a temperature range   of –40 °C to 180 °C. The chambers by the commercial firm CTS include a temperature sensor and a CO sensor that, upon reaching a specific limit, activates nitrogen refrigeration and breaks the rupture disk, thus preventing any damages to the battery and to the user.
 
  • 6 Prebatem heaters from the commercial firm Selecta with a temperature range of 0 °C to 50 °C for performing tests at room temperature. These heaters have no safety means but are intended to act as a temperature conditioning system for tests at room temperature.
  • 1 calorimeter from the commercial firm THT for measuring the heat generated by batte- ries in charging and discharging processes.
 
- "Domolab" Testing Firm :
  • A firm for testing monitoring systems (30).
  • Natural gas, propane and diesel supplies.
  • System for refrigeration by absorption (31).
  • Thermal-solar support system with 10 kW of power.
  • Solar photovoltaic system with 3 kW of peak power.
- LV Electric Microgrid:
  • Photovoltaic facility (Ecotecnia, 2 kWe. Single-phase).
  • Micro-turbine (Capstone, 30 kWe / 85 kWth. Three-phase).
  • Stirling Engine (Solo, 9.5 kWe, 26 kWth. Three-phase).
  • Storage system (Sunny Island 15 kW. Three-phase).
  • Controllable domotic load system (Fagor domestic appliances).
  • Measurement and protection system (ZIV).
  • Monitoring, control and management system.
 
- Supply Quality Analysers:
  • QNA 512 by CIRCUITOR - Power analysers.
  • Wavebook 516 by IOTECH - Data gathering system.
  • RPM (Recorder Power Meter) by ADLER.
 
- EMC Testing Lab:
  • 15 kW Profline three-phase grid simulator.
  • Fuel cell testing system.
  • Natural gas, hydrogen and mixed gas supplies.

Only projects of the last 3 years are cited.
More than 10 industrial development projects in the field of electrical storage during the period 2010-2013, with private funding (industry) to the Centre for more than 3 million Euros. In the field of administration highlight.
 
 

Future plans

Extension of the electric storage laboratory in the form of a new building capable of housing development, testing and validation equipment for a variety of MW. It is expected to involve an investment of 1.8 million euros in equipment over the next three years.
