Description: The SINTEF Group is structured into eight research divisions, which have been defined in terms of value chains and industrial marked clusters. SINTEF do research in the entire value chain, from source to end user. We combine expertise in technology, the natural sciences, social sciences and humanities, cooperating closely with key industrial partners. SINTEF Energy Research and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) jointly operate a dedicated Renewable Energy System Laboratory (Smart grid laboratory).
Windpower Lab/ Smartgrid Lab
- Component oriented research: test running of electrical machine prototypes and experiments with control methods for grid connected converters.
- Power grid related research: transient and fault handling in power systems, fault ride through for various loads and sources, and network operation and protection during weak grid and islanding conditions.
The laboratory can also be used for experiments regarding operation and fault handling in converter dominated systems.
