The Virtual Lab is an online educational simulation tool that mimics the operation of the actual laboratory microgrid of EES lab of ICCS. A mathematical model of the laboratory microgrid has been developed along with a friendly GUI. The user can observe several variables (e.g., voltage, active power, reactive power etc.) and perform several actions (e.g. change the power factor of the inverter). The simulation tool includes two different laboratory setups and corresponding experiments: voltage control, and microgrid operation.
After filling out a short questionnaire you will be forwarded to the virtual facility.
