Laboratory overview

The LINTE^2 Laboratory is a complex experimental installation dedicated to R&D activities in the area of electric power systems. The installation has the form of a flexibly configured reduced-scale power system equipped with state-of-the-art apparatus, power generating / converting units and a distributed control system based on Ethernet communication.

Activities of the Laboratory include research and development projects carried out with participation and for the industry, demonstration and training actions and other forms of R&D undertakings aimed at the implementation and commercialization of the results.

The Laboratory was constructed as an investment project entitled Laboratory for Innovative Power Technologies and Integration of Renewable Energy Sources (acronym LINTE^2) funded in the frame of the ERDF, within the Innovative Economy Operational Programme 2007-2013. The Laboratory became operational as of the beginning of 2016.
