Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Project: Efficient and Reliable Stand Alone Hybrid Trigeneration Systems for Telecommunications

Acronym: ERSATRITCOM
Main Objective:
Global environmental concerns and the ever-increasing need for energy, coupled with a steady progress in renewable energy technologies are opening up new opportunities for utilization of alternative energy resources for telecommunications (TLC) applications. The equipments used in TLC have strict specific requirements in terms of type and quality of the power supply and most TLC energy systems present a special energy supply challenge, requiring reliable, unattended power system operation in locations where grid power is not available. For these applications, interest in stand-alone power systems (SAPS) is increasing and the value of alternative power solutions is becoming more apparent. Considering this, the main general objectives of this research program are:
• The investigation of the new available technologies for the generation and storage of energy for TLC applications;
• The development of a SAPS capable of self-diagnosing power converter faults and, in case of a failure occurrence, to keep its normal operation, although with a reduced performance.
