  • Direct current (DC) low voltage microgrid

    It is a 48 V nominal voltage microgrid that incorporates several storage systems and photovoltaic panels through dc-dc converters, and a programmable power supply and load to emulate generation and demand profiles. The main purpose of this microgrid is to test, analyse and validate simulation models and local control techniques for storage and generation systems, as well as energy management strategies for dc electrical systems.

    Fields of application

    Immersive systems and digital twin for power infrastructures

    Integration of distributed generation and storage. Microgrids

    Optimal grid operation and demand management

    Product validation (HW/SW) for electricity grids


    Rapid control prototyping (RCP)

    Design and validation of controls and modulation techniques of power electronic converters through the real-time simulation platform.

    Validation of 48 V nominal voltage dc-dc converter topologies

    The microgrid allows the integration of any type of dc-dc converter of nominal voltage of 48 V on the network side for the integration of generation systems, energy storage or loads in close to reality conditions.

    Validation of control platforms and control strategies in real-time

    Testing of proprietary control platforms and design and validation of control and management strategies with plants simulated in real time on the HIL platform. Possibility of performing tests under non-ideal conditions and in the event of grid or emulated system failures.

    Validation of converter control techniques and energy asset management strategies

    The microgrid allows validation of proprietary low-level control techniques for dc-dc converters and energy management strategies through the Texas Instruments control cards (programmed through Simulink) and the monitoring platform developed in LabView that communicates with all devices.
