Switching to Renewables Case Study

When the School of Engineering in the University of Edinburgh was looking to expand their power lab capabilities, they needed to source a power system that generated results.
EAC-ACS-4Q in Test LaboratoryLegislative and social pressures are finally seeing the tide turn for renewables, with the majority of the world’s countries committing to strict emissions targets. Advances in low-carbon technologies are seen as a key pillar to achieving net-zero CO2 emissions by the second half of the century, by making clean energy generation cheap and efficient.
The Institute for Energy Systems within the University’s School of Engineering is at the forefront of this energy revolution. They conduct experiments into devices and systems of all sizes: from full power-electronic converter design and power-systems integration studies, to performance testing of novel light-weight modular generators and motor systems for renewable applications.
ETPS supplied an EAC-ACS-4Q four quadrant module to the School of Engineering. It will enable the University to bring together experimental work in research areas such as power-electronics, electrical machines and smart grids in one lab. It will also enable allow them to expand their research into new areas such as automotive and aerospace.
