Renewable Energies and Smart Grid

Renewable Energies and Smart Grid

Renewable energies are those forms of energy that are generated from sources that regenerates themselves or are inexhaustible. Through our didactic systems we explain their operating principles: Photovoltaic solar energy, Thermal solar energy, Wind energy, Fuel cells, Biodiesel, Etc.

Solar Photovoltaic

A solar photovoltaic system (PV system) is a power system designed to supply usable solar power by means of photovoltaics; it converts sunlight or solar radiation into direct current electricity by using semiconductors. To allow users of different preparation to study this system in its variants...

Solar Thermal

Solar thermal is the technology that utilizes the heat energy from the sun for heating or for electricity production. The difference from PV is that solar thermal power plant generates electricity indirectly. The heat from the sun’s ray is collected and used to heat a fluid and the steam produced...

Wind

Wind energy captures the natural wind and converts the air’s motion into mechanical energy usually for electricity production and this mechanism is referred to a wind-electric turbine. The turbine blades are normally designed to capture the kinetic energy in wind and when start moving...

Fuel Cells

Fuel cells are devices that produce electricity by a chemical reaction taking place at the electrodes (anode and cathode). Hydrogen is the basic fuel but the fuel cells also require oxygen. They generate electricity with very little pollution; much of the hydrogen and oxygen used in the generating...

Biomasses

Biomass refers to the organic material that is used for production of energy, which is referred to as Bioenergy. De Lorenzo has designed a kit, for basic level, where the entire process of the production of organic fuel can be displayed (alcohol fermentation, distilled mash and conversion into...

Automotive

For this field of renewable energies and smart grid, De Lorenzo thought to insert also some trainers, which are part of Autotronics laboratory, and the reason is soon said. They are simulators concerning lightweight electric vehicles, hybrid and electric systems. In hybrid system simulator...

Solar-Wind-Hydrogen

This trainer focuses on the integration of photovoltaic (PV) system, micro-wind turbine, Polymeric Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) stack and PEM water electrolyser, for a power generation system. It has been designed for the study of renewable energies: solar...

Hybrid Systems

Hybrid renewable energy systems are becoming popular as stand-alone power systems (off-grid, not connected to any electricity distribution system) for providing electricity in remote areas due to advances in renewable energy technologies. A hybrid energy system usually consists...

Hydroelectric power

Hydroelectricity is electricity produced from hydropower and its cost is relatively low, making it a competitive source of renewable electricity. A hydraulic turbine converts the energy of flowing water into mechanical energy. A hydroelectric generator converts this mechanical energy into electricity...

Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is the goal to reduce the amount of energy required to provide products and services. Improvements in energy efficiency are generally achieved by adopting a more efficient technology or production process or by application of commonly methods to reduce energy losses...

Smart Grid

The “Grid”, refers to the electric grid, a network of transmission lines, substations, transformers and more that deliver electricity from the power plants to home or business. The digital technology that allows for two-way communication between the utility and its customers...
