lab-ener-acondicionamiento

Investigates the potential associated with non-conventional renewable energies and their use in both electrical systems and isolated microgrids.

In addition, various types of non-conventional renewable generation methods are validated generating the appropriate experimental conditions through the facilities, enabling the study of their systemic impact on a microgrid located in the branches.

The laboratory has a microgrid of six bars of concentrated parameters associated with a SCADA system in conjunction with diverse test loads (motors, capacitors, resistors) and measuring instruments such as Network analyzers.

In addition, it has a wind tunnel with a wind mill, a solar tracking system with 10 monocrystalline silicon panels of 100 [W] (located on the roof) connected with a grid tie inverter of 4600 [W].

Among other equipment, it has multimeters, power sources, oscilloscopes, and electronic components in general.
