Power and Energy Research - The University of Manchester
Overview:The Power and Energy Group is one of the foremost engineering research groups in the area of Power System Engineering, Power Conversion, High Voltage Engineering and Smart Energy Systems. The group facilities include
1. UK's largest open access High Voltage Lab (https://www.eee.manchester.ac.uk/research/facilities/high-voltage-lab/).
20 A fully-instrumented, programmable high-power (250 kWh 180 kWh) AC grid connected energy storage system linked into the campus low voltage system enabling control algorithms for grid services.
3. The Intelligent Electric Power Network Evaluation Facility (IEPNEF), a state-of-the-art 100 kW DC aircraft-electrical systems demonstrator test rig.
4. Hardware in the loop simulator (HIL) - The Manchester 6 Rack RTDS is a digital system able to perform electromechanical and electromagnetic electric power system transient simulations continuously in real time on physical equipment.
