Smart Energy Systems Laboratory

DESCRIPTION

The Smart Energy Systems Laboratory is a multidisciplinary cyber-physical system that captures all domains, layers and zones from the Smart Grid Architecture Model (SGAM) in a real-time optimization, control, ICT and power hardware-in-the-loop framework. It combines industrial controllers, a dedicated emulator for ICT, Real-Time Discrete Simulator (RTDS) for power grid coupled to a local grid containing several commercial systems (e.g. grid inverter, energy storage, etc) and physical emulators for consumption.

Other energy networks models such as district heating can be implemented in RTDS. An extensive collection of validated Real-Time models are available for transmission and distribution grids, wind turbines, solar PV, batteries, heat pumps, customer premises, etc. The system enables the Model Based Design approach for developing, testing and validating analytics and functionalities for intelligent energy systems.

AREAS OF SPECIAL COMPETENCE

Control and coordination of renewable generation and energy storage, modeling and sector coupling (electrical and district heating), provision of ancillary services, power and energy management in off-grid systems, market bidding strategies.

WHAT CAN BE TESTED

- Grid code compliance of systems up to 50 kVA installed power
- Control and optimization algorithms for multi energy systems
- Large scale integration of renewable energy systems
- Resilience of multi energy systems to cyber threads

AVAILABLE INFRASTRUCTURE

Opal-RT system (2000 buses EMT/ 5000 buses RMS) for electrical grid and district heating networks, Regatron 4Q grid simulator (50 kVA), solar PV panel emulator, Fronius grid Inverter 4 kW, BYD battery 6kWh, smart meters, Industrial PLCs
