Description
The infrastructure, was inaugurated in late 2013, has been designed for its use in studies such as:
  • Micro-grids control and management.
  • Distributed resources and storage systems in electric networks integration.
  • Pro-active management of electric demand.
  • Electronic power converters control.
  • Smart Grids and Smart buildings management.
  • Distributed generation scenarios emulation.
  • Grid integration of electric vehicles.
 
The laboratory consists of a configurable low voltage, three-phase buses system, managed through a SCADA system, which allows creating up to five electric micro-grids, connected or not to the main network.
 
In this buses system, the following devices available in the laboratory can be connected:
  • Electronic power converters –AC/DC, AC/DC/AC, DC/DC/AC– controlled by real-time in- dustrial PCs, which allows emulating distributed generators through power-hardware- in-the-loop techniques, as well as developing and implementing control techniques.
  • Three-phase loads to emulate the electric consumption.
  • Batteries system and AC/DC/DC charger controlled through a real-time PC, which allows carrying out integration studies of storage systems in the micro-grids, as well as emu- lating charge/discharge cycles in electric vehicles.
  • Possibility to connect additional equipment for it’s testing.
 
The laboratory counts with the following control and management systems:
  • SCADA system based 2 NI compact RIOs 9022 and NI LabVIEW used in the micro- grid control.
  • Industrial real-time PCs used in the converters control.
 
The available resources are complemented with simulation and design tools such as Matlab/Simulink and PowerGrid.
 
Services offered
  • Control algorithms testing.
  • Renewable energy systems integra- tion tests.
