Project 264 Calle San Sebastian
The first TECRE demonstration project is a 240 VAC PV-battery system using two 120 VAC inverter/converters in series. The MATE3 microprocessor maintains the two inverters 180 degrees out of phase for 240 VAC output. The system is a 2 kW system with a 14.8 kWh battery storage system. The screenshots show how the energy distribution for a full-size refrigerator and one air conditioning unit shifts throughout a day. The micro-grid design was a final project for Northeastern students taking Energy Systems (ENSY 5300) in the spring of 2019. The system was installed by 2 Northeastern students along with a Puerto Rican master electrician (Tito Kayak) and his assistant (Bernard). The MATE3 monitoring system enables control and observation of the PV-battery plant 24 hrs/day.
TECRE aims to install additional monitored sites to benefit end-users as well as educational institutions advancing the TECRE mission.
