RICE is a research institute of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering focusing on cooperation with industry.
It covers a complete research chain, from basic theoretical research through applied research to the development and testing of functional models and prototypes.
The centre is equipped with unique R&D infrastructure, e.g. a hall laboratory and testing room for power electronics incl. high-voltage up to 31 kV and 4 MW, and laboratories for materials and sensors including special microscopy laboratories and X-ray diagnostics.
Main R&D fields related to smart energy systems are:
- Power conversion, power semiconductor converters in power grids (STATCOM, high-power chargers, solid-state transformers) including multilevel converters for MV grids
- Smart grids, microgrids and new power grid concepts, ESS, integration of renewables, diagnostics
- Control SW&HW
- R&D, design and testing of power electronic systems and converters, prototyping
- Development of real-time control systems, SW&HW, testing (SIL, HIL)
- Solutions for power grids and energy systems (chargers, STATCOMs, ESS, microgrids)
- Testing of AC/CD power systems up to 31 kV and 4 MW, (power converters, chargers, energy storage systems, transformers, e-drives, motors and generators, etc.)
- Testing of embedded systems and HW (HIL, microscope analysis, X-ray diagnostics, etc.)
- Design analysis and validation using mathematical modeling.
- Test hall laboratory with controllable AC and DC sources (up to 31 kV and 4 MW)
- Power electronics and AC drives labs
- Labs for design and testing of control HW, PCB
- Clean room lab, microscopy lab and X-ray diagnostics
