Research Laboratory of the Department of Electrical Engineering, for simulation and prototyping of electronic converters and research in electrical engineering and renewable energy, equipped with the necessary infrastructure with oscilloscopes, probes, network analyzers, power analyzers, programmable loads, frequency response analyzers and impedance spectroscopy, programmable sources, etc.

For its uniqueness and importance to this line of research, it’s important to note that the renewable energy Laboratory has a power microgrid fully operational and which has been working on various projects. This microgrid, funded by the Government of Navarra and the ERDF, has been designed so that it can serve as a test bed for different generating elements, accumulators, conversion, monitoring and control that can be incorporated and to analyze the behavior of microgrids in urban environments and Smart Cities. The microgrid has 5 kWp of  BP585 photovoltaic panels installed on the roof of the building, Bornay 6 kW wind turbine located near the building, a bank of lead acid batteries FIAMM of 72 kWh and 300 Ah, a bank of 5 Maxwell ultracapacitors 83.3 F and 46,6V each, a system of PEM fuel cells Heliocentrics, with 4 NEXA1200 batteries 1.2 kW each, a storage system of 35.2 Nm3 hydrogen and 16.5 kVA generator. The conversion kit is a INGECON HYBRID 30 kW INGETEAM, in whose development the research team helped.
