Wind Power Systems Laboratory

360 picture of the lab

Introduction

The Wind Power Systems Laboratory includes models and experimental setups of wind power generators, power electronic converters, network configurations and associated control, used both in student projects and research activities.

The lab has licenses to many different software packages for simulating stationary and transient conditions in the wind power network, for instance DigSilent from Power factory, PSCAD/EMTDC, and Simulink and Matlab. Besides using measurements from the laboratory for verifying the simulation models, also data measured directly at different wind farm sites are used for verification.
