INGRID is a singular laboratory at an international level, with a great experimental capacity in high-voltage and high-power, which comprises equipment and component testing, smart grids, electric systems for renewable energy and smart management of the electric power consumption (electric vehicle, building, demand management...) INGRID is a living and tailored infrastructure that is closely in contact with the industry and the global scientific community, providing support on applied research and the technological development of companies, configured as an international collaboration node.
It includes a series of pilot plants focused on the separation, treatment and recovery of different types of waste: separation of organic and inorganic waste, including the gasification of the former and the vitrification of the latter (plasma pilot plant); recovery by wet processes of the metallic fraction contained in industrial waste (hydro-metallurgical treatment plant); elimination of organic pollutants in industrial waste and contaminated soils (thermal furnace); high-temperature treatment of industrial waste (rotating COEL Furnace), etc.
This facility is integrated in the MaRINET European network, an EU-funded programme to accelerate the development of offshore renewable energy (wave, tidal, offshore-wind). The Electrical PTO Lab is a turbine emulator that reproduces the mechanical output of an ocean energy device/wind turbine. This HIL test-bench allows us to perform dynamic tests with the real electrical equipment that is going to be used in the WEC. The viability of the concept can be analyzed from the electric point of view. Different kind of tests can be performed: electrical operation, development and validation of control algorithms, repetitive tests, etc.
