An autonomous electricity network, the so-called micro-grid system, will be built at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) Industry 4.0 Technology Center with the technical support of Schneider Electric, under a cooperation agreement between the two parties to further strengthen the relationship between the institution and the company in the field of education.
The micro-grid system, worth more than HUF 70 million, to be built at the university is the first in Hungary. The system, based on Schneider Electric's latest energy management technologies, is a solution to meet increased demand, ensure grid stability and the efficient use of renewable energy sources. The company will provide the necessary hardware and software, equipment design, installation, commissioning and maintenance.
Schneider Electric said that this innovative micro-grid system will integrate the solar PV system in the building housing the Industry 4.0 Technology Center and will include a high-capacity battery storage system adjacent to the facility. To demonstrate the role of the micro-grid in electric transport, two electric car chargers will be installed in front of the building. For the new grid, Schneider Electric will provide, among other things, a distribution box with sensors, various controllers and software for energy management and electric car charging control.
Charaf Hassan, Dean of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at BME, said in a statement that "the micro-grid system that will be created as a result of this agreement is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate how energy use can be optimized and how much can be saved by using advanced solutions. And by integrating the solar system with battery storage, they can also demonstrate how a company can ensure a continuous power supply in the event of a power cut. The plans for the grid have already been drawn up and much of the equipment is already in place at the center. They hope to have the system up and running by autumn this year.”
Schneider Electric has also agreed to organize lectures with the institute, for which the company will provide experts, and to offer university students places at its professional events and the opportunity to participate in projects led by its experts and seminars based on their work in the laboratory, in the framework of thematic labs and theses. In addition, as part of the cooperation, the company also offers BME students’ internships as part of its internship program.
