NAME

UDEX (Demonstration and Experimentation Unit)

DESCRIPTION

The European Energy Transition and Green Deal are key drivers of innovation and development, prioritising energy efficiency and renewables within the power sector, necessitating that the energy market be integrated, interconnected and digitalised. This has driven the creation and development of the UDEX infrastructure facilitating a holistic approach in relating R&D activities, over different inter-related and interconnected layers (physical systems; digital infrastructures; communications), to business strategies through the use of a flexible and digitalized network.

MOST OUTSTANDING EQUIPMENT AND COMPONENTS

Electric Vehicle Charging Station +

The BLVE RING STATION is a concrete enclosed EV charging Station, for convenience, it is divided into four compartments: MV; transformer; LV, and (Power Electronics) “charger”. The BLVE RS provides 3 modes of charging, the Fast charging mode using the Chademo socket, semi-fast using the Mennekes socket and normal charging using the Schuko socket.

Electrical Network Simulators +

Rated 50kVA max power able to work as both power source and as regenerative RLC loads. This technology enables the infrastructure to expand in the areas of power electronics, IEC61000-4 and EMC tests

Energy Storage Substation +

A Battery Management System (BMS) using sophisticated 168kWh Lead Acid batteries charging and discharging system, this system is combined with 100kW a photovoltaic plant.

LV Network +

Advanced Metering Infrastructure( AMI) in LV, with more than 200 single and three phases Smart-meters interconnected to DC (Data Concentrators) using PLC communication thought 2km of underground LV cables, UDEX becomes a real-world platform for carrying out smart-grid tests in LV.

Real MV Network +

Highly flexible and configurable grid with 15km of underground cables, 500m of overhead lines, more than 70 automated switchgears. Fully automated and digitalised management system for the operation and control of the infrastructure. This network can be energised by a high power source to reproduce nominal and short circuit fault conditions.
