A Smart Grid is an advanced electrical grid that uses analog information, digital information and communications technology to gather and act on information about the behavior of suppliers and consumers, in an automated way to improve the efficiency, reliability, economics, and sustain ability of the production and distribution of electricity.
The AEL-CPSS-03S is an application that reflects the most important operations carried out in the actual Smart Grids Power Systems.
Parallel operations with different renewable energy sources.
Real time monitoring and control the demanded energy and the energy production.
Automatic control operations of synchronization.
Parallel operations of hydroelectric, wind turbine and conventional energy sources.
Transmission and distribution flow powers.
Distribution transformer with voltage regulator.
Parallel distribution lines.
Active, capacitive and inductive loads.
Automatic power factor compensation.
Feeder protection relay.
This application shows different operations of an entire power system, from the energy is generated until it reaches the final consumer.
In the generation field, the students will learn how work different generation systems from three different sources: conventional energy source like carbon, fuel, gas, etc., hydroelectric source, wind source.
The AEL-CPSS-03S includes a SCADA Control System that will allows the users supervise, control and manage the generation, transmission and consumption electrical system:
- Disconnector and circuit breakers control.
- Data Acquisition of all electrical parameters of the system.
- Manual and automatic control of the generators.
