The Photovoltaic Systems Application in Isolated and Parallel Grids, ”AEL-PHIP”, has been designed to study the operations carried out in photovoltaic power systems which operate isolated from the national energy grid (island operation) or connected to it (parallel operation).
This application allows studying the electricity generation by means of photovoltaic panels, through the simulation of different configurations and irradiance conditions, as well as its working in island and parallel to grid operation. To that end, the application also allows proving and understanding the working principles of the different control, regulation and energy storage devices used in real photovoltaic systems.
For these purposes, the ”AEL-PHIP” application consists of different kits that allow studying several aspects of photovoltaic power plants:
Each kit’s didactic purpose is detailed below:
Each panel simulator has a regulator for the adjustment of solar irradiance and an analog voltmeter and ammeter for measuring the generation electrical parameters. With this kit, the user will be able to achieve the following learning: daily and yearly curves display, calculation of the photovoltaic modules optimal position, characteristic curves display and photovoltaic modules analysis in parallel, series and other configurations.
These loads are AC and DC lamps with different power consumption. This kit also includes a network analyzer for monitoring the system electrical parameters and an analog voltmeter and ammeter with the goal of connecting them to the battery terminals for measuring its operating current and voltage.
With this kit the user will be able to achieve the following learning: installation of photovoltaic systems, measurement of the plant electrical parameters and design and operation of photovoltaic systems isolated from the grid in direct or storage operation.
This kit also includes a network analyzer for monitoring the electrical parameters of the power flux supplied to the grid.
