Renewable energy

Renewable energy

Generating energy using renewable natural resources, such as wind, sunlight, rain, tides, geothermal energy, etc., has recently gained in importance as it is an efficient method for reducing greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). There is a great demand for innovative technologies for more intelligent networks, engineers for designing systems and technicians for looking after and maintaining these technologies.

See below for more detailed information.


Learning system Fundamentals of renewable energy

  • Comprehensively coverage of the fundamentals of renewable energy systems and the requirements for using the equipment in this field
  • Teaches the principles of electricity generation from renewable energy sources (solar power and wind power), as well as its subsequent storage in lead-acid batteries
  • Realistic experiment inside with a flexible solar panel emulator and wind turbine emulator
  • Current-carrying parts of the electrical connecting cables are covered and insulated, making connection possible without the risk of electric shock
  • The system includes a very versatile USB peripheral device – a four-quadrant dynamometer/power supply unit.
