Power lines: The main challenges in terms of monitoring and inspection in Chile

Although they have different specific objectives, power line monitoring and inspection aim to improve the availability of these vital elements of our electrical infrastructure. In general, monitoring is related to the real-time operation of the system while line inspection is a maintenance task (preventive or corrective).   Power lines are a fundamental part of transporting energy to points of consumption. For this reason, optimal availability…

Energy efficiency in low voltage electric motors

Posted by Revista ElectroIndustria. A few years ago, electric motors represented over 60% of the country’s energy consumption in Chile, a fact that explains the industry’s interest in having more efficient equipment. To understand more about energy efficiency in low-voltage electric motors, we spoke with Luis Gutiérrez, Doctor of Electrical Engineering, Power Systems (University of Manchester, United Kingdom), Director of the Civil Engineering in Energy…

Configurable Testbed for Low Carbon Power System Dynamics with High Penetration of Power Electronics.

The project consists of a real-time simulator distributed in 4 different geographical locations, which will be coordinated through the internet. The reason for considering distant geographic locations is to model the remote communication of distant elements through conventional communication channels. This interaction seeks to test the feasibility that the distribution infrastructure can respond to control commands given from the electrical system operator for various purposes….

Solar Energy Research Center (SERC-Chile)

The overall aim of SERC Chile is to build a solid base of knowledge on solar energy. For this second stage (2017-2022), four strategic focuses were defined for the development of solar energy in Chile: 1) Massive integration of large-scale solar energy to the electric interconnected system, 2) Solar energy based mining in Chile, 3) Development and widespread adoption of small-scale solar solutions and 4)…
