UPM has deployed a platform for the experimentation on smart grids. The platform, located on Montegancedo Campus, consists of several elements (generators, consumers, converters and energy storage devices), interconnected by two buses (one AC bus and one DC bus) forming a smart nanogrid. The system can operate alone or connected to the low-voltage network.
The system is fully monitored and provides a graphical user interface for displaying the status of the different elements in real time, even remotely.
