The QINOUS micro-grid demonstrator and test facility represents a typical layout of a real 100 kW micro-grid.
The micro-grid AC bus-bar is isolated from the utility grid with two frequency converters. One converter is used to simulate the consumer load profile. The other converter is used to simulate the renewable energy feed-in load profile (e.g. wind or solar). Both load profiles are freely adjustable to be able to test any given real-world application.
