About the lab:
The IoT-MGLab is a living laboratory conceived to test and demonstrate real-life community and residential microgrids.
The structure is equipped with several means of dispersed generation (Roof-top PV panels, wind turbine and fuel cell system), real-time control platform, with several communication protocols. The laboratory also comprises DC/DC converters, power electronic loads and IoT- ready appliances. IoT-MGLab also benefits from a computing layer mainly driven by MATLAB and GAMS solvers and is used as backbone for different batch and operational pipelines (such as optimization, estimation and forecasting).
The IoT-MGLab provides the following areas of special competence:
