Description
The SEILAB (Semivirtual Energy Integration Lab) takes a comprehensive approach towards the concept of its building’s energy (including electricity and heating), with a stand-alone configuration acting as a Smart-Grid and interacting as a Net Zero Energy Building.
 
SEILAB’s infrastructure caters for trials, experimental assessments of seasonal performance factors (SPF), comparing different devices and systems configurations, checking and opti- mising controllers in real testing conditions within the context of a virtual building with real thermal and electric loads and consumptions. The components to be tested in any system configuration are: micro-co-generation, heat pumps (air/water, water/water), solar photovoltaic sensors, whether thermal or hybrid (PVT), chillers, fuel cells, ORC, biomas, gas heaters and mini wind power
 


[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.

  • SmartCity Living Lab. This was the first microgrid project at IREC. It involved using three emulation cabinets that were configured so as to emulate a general microgrid scenario, with generation, storage and consumption. A management algorithm was developed to boost the minimal amount of informa- tion exchanged between iNode and iSockets. It was also the first project in which IEC 61850 was applied.
  • DER–IREC 22@ Microgrid. Five emulation cabinets were used. They were configured so as to emulate a hotel scenario with variable generation, variable consumption and storage. It was tried on a microgrid management algorithm and used a commercial SCADA system (http://der-microgrid.gtd.es/).
  • Charge & Ride. Developing and implementing the control algorithms that manage break power in trains for the purpose of electric vehicle charging within a railway network.
  • NOVARE 09 Awards: Vehicle to Microgrid. Testing the applications at two-way electric vehicle charging points (Vehicle 2 Grid, V2G) in a domestic microgrid. Power is managed from a system operator’s standpoint and a domestic user’s perspective.
  • Green eMotion. Management of electric vehicle battery charging and discharging within a microgrid once their useful life as part of a vehicle has ended (second life) (http://www.greenemotion- project.eu/). Designing and implementing management algorithms for microgrids and Medium Vol- tage multi-microgrids.
  • EMERGE. Developing and implementing control for the 9-phase generator and the converter for a 30 kVA engine-generator. Control will be tested against voltage dips and other disturbances in the grid.
  • KIC InnoEnergy Project ‘MTT Micro CHP’. Dynamic testing of a co-generation micro wind turbine in real conditions (emulating using different electrical and thermal consumption profiles and weather conditions).
