The power electronic laboratory (eACCESS-PEL)
The laboratory will be oriented on the application in low voltage and network smart power converters, which are appearing in an increasing number in the distribution network due to photovoltaic installations, wind turbines and energy storage. The laboratory will be located at SCU and it will be used both in the teaching and research activities. The concept of this facility is that it will encourage and stimulate student creativity and will offer a lot of freedom in the implementation of new solutions of power electronics designs and applications. Beyond power devices the structure of the laboratory will include also necessary communication and control systems consistent with the standards currently being applied for smart grids.
