SmartGrid by leXsolar allows students to get an understanding of the entire process behind renewable energy’s conversion from source into usable energy in the power grid. Students will address power grid stability in relation to renewable energy and begin to address the issues that relate to the use of renewable energy sources. This set up comes in Professional and Ready-to-go sizes.

SmartGrid Ready-to-Go kits are a complete experiment system that can be used any where without further components.

Learning Outcomes

With SmartGrid Ready-to-go kits individuals will learn:

  • characteristics of solar energy
  • IV characteristics
  • temperature dependency of solar cells
  • complex interactions between renewable energies, energy stores and consumers
  • electro technical challenges of main operations
  • effect of renewable energies on grid stability
  • generation of different energy sources and load profiles
