DipLab - Mobile short circuit laboratory

DipLab - Mobile short circuit laboratory

This laboratory will be used both in research and development to identify and improve manufacturing unit properties during network failures.

Coupling of reactors makes it possible to expose the generation unit to voltage dips, with various residual voltage, without influencing the grid.

Objectives

  • Gain new knowledge
  • Develop and verify numerical tools and technical solutions
  • Study different solutions for handling fault in the grid
  • Test production facilities:
    • Fault-ride-through capabilities
    • Response (current/voltage) to voltage dips/ short circuits
  • Can provide useful experience: Optimization of protection
    • Adapt protection to local network conditions
    • Contribute to cost-effective production facilities
