Description

The CNH2-M1 microgrid is an isolated grid that is interconnected by a 24V direct current bus. It includes a small-scale wind turbine and photovoltaic power generation sources with energy storage systems using GEL batte- ries and hydrogen storage, in order to feed real domestic loads with home automation and an intelligent electric vehicle charging point. It also has a programmable electronic load in order to provide different demand profiles.

Services offered
 
The CNH2-M1 microgrid offers to the scientific and technological sector the posibility to re- search with this type of configurations. Because it is a testing platform, it enables experi- ments on hydrogen systems as well as on microgrid components and tools. It is open to companies and entities for experimentation and validation of control, operation and predic- tions models.
 


[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

The microgrid has basic meteorological measurements such us wind velocity and wind direction, temperature and a calibrated solar cell. The PV installation, which is divided in 3 strings, has the possibility of changing the slope over between 20º to 60º over the axis of rotation E-W.
 
The safety operation with hydrogen gas is accomplished in a special enclosure. It is equipped with a ventilation, extraction and hydrogen leak detection system.
 
Fuel Cell has additional systems for controlling and management the exhaust heat. This heat is use for air conditioning with the aim of improving whole performance system. Also and additional heat system controls the hydrogen storage processes in metal hydrides containers.
