Capacity building in Smart and Innovative eNERGY management

It is our pleasure to announce the presentation of the AIT SmartEST Laboratory activities and the SmartEST Sim Lab   simulation-as-a-service platform by Dr. Edmund Widl, Senior Scientist at the Austrian Institute of Technology. 

For more information about the SmartEST Sim Lab  simulation-as-a-service platform, please download material from  ZENODO.

Figure 1. AIT SmartEST laboratory 

The AIT SmartEST Laboratory is a 1 MVA lab for SmartGrid test and validation purposes. Within Sinergy the facility is used for Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) training purposes as well as inverter tests. More specifically, the training sessions for grid connected inverters and battery storage tests lever on this infrastructure. The access is open for IMP personal supervised by laboratory experts from AIT.

Within the SmartEST infrastructure a part is dedicated to power electronics development and design studies as well as microgrid studies. The microgrid involves several AIT Smart Grid Converters in flexible configuration. The studies can be performed either on site with guidance from AIT experts or via virtual access using the AIT microgrid controller GUI.
