CTU, University Centre for Energy Efficient Buildings (UCEEB) is a research institute focused on cooperation with industry, with 21 laboratories. The building of the centre is itself a living lab, providing means to test various energy systems, including smart grid or microgrid operation. Our laboratories can be interconnected to include hardware-in-the-loop features to the testbed. We have around 200 projects yearly, with around one third from the area of energy. For larger applications and tests, we have strong connection with various partners including municipalities, real estate developers, industrial facilities and energy providers.
- Development of smart grid structures
- Flexible structure of the testbed, hardware-in-the-loop simulations
- Photovoltaic systems coupled with other RES (heat pumps, ORCs, Carnot bats., ...) and batteries
- Energy in communities
- Testing of integration of various systems
- Hardware-in-the-loop, e.g. testing of a heat pump in a climatic chamber, PV in a solar simulator, ORC under variable load, etc.
- Support of engineering oriented psychologists and sociologists
- Feasibility studies, energy system designs
- Advanced grid development
- Micro Grid with PVs, batteries, EV, CHP and ORC, with possibility to connect other sources
- Special laboratories - solar simulator, electric laboratory, climatic chambers, acoustic laboratory...
- Heat network with independent sources
