If you haven't heard of a microgrid, it's a self-sufficient, contained energy grid. It could be built into a house, an office building, or even a university campus. Our students are working with SAGE Automation to explore the potential of new microgrid technology.
Adept Adelaide members are giving us a glimpse into the future of energy with a special project: the SAGE Automation Microgrid Test Rig. Our partnership with SAGE Automation enables our students to work on this capstone project right on SAGE Automation’s campus at the Tonsley Innovation District, directly alongside their talented engineers. The interdisciplinary team are designing and developing a functioning model power grid. The model will be used to find innovative solutions to emerging problems on the grid and provide training in power grid functionality.
