This is the second phase of the supply of equipment and its installation at the Micro Electrical Network Laboratory of the University of Cuenca, in Ecuador.
Both this second phase and the first phase developed between 2014 and 2016 arose from the Debt Swap program between Spain and Ecuador.
The Micro Electrical Network of the University of Cuenca Since its first phase, it has had state-of-the-art equipment on a par with the most important European research centers specialized in the study of renewable energies, and has become the most important microgrid laboratory in South America. Its equipment includes different configurations of photovoltaic installations (fixed and tracked structure), inverters operating in parallel with lithium, redox and lead acid batteries, a gas microturbine, a hydraulic microturbine, a hydrogen cell rack, etc.
In this second phase, Irradia collaborates with Eductrade for the supply and assembly of a large number of equipment to complete the Micro Red Eléctrica laboratory. The results of the first phase are: complete photovoltaic kits, three-phase power converters, optimizers for photovoltaic panels, hybrid inverters, weather stations, an InGaAs detector, lithium batteries, AC energy meters, electric vehicle charging stations, electric motorcycles and electric bicycles.
