Tecnalia, one of the first R&D companies in Spain, developed a microgrid laboratory at their headquarters. The lab facilities are flexible and modular, which is perfect for testing a microgrid, where the right combination of choices (choice of the on-site generation, choice of the storage …) is key to its success.
Controllable load is also part of the broad range of options at the microgrid laboratory with resistive and reactive load banks.
