El CITCEA-UPC és un centre de transferència de tecnologia creat el 2001 a la Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. Està especialitzant en l’enginyeria elèctrica, és capaç de respondre a les necessitats de les empreses mitjançant la realització d’un estudi o la creació d’un prototipus funcional que finalment servirà a l’empresa per desenvolupar un nou producte comercial o per solucionar un nou problema tecnològic plantejat pel creixement i evolució de l’empresa.
L’expertesa del CITCEA-UPC radica en tot tipus d’aplicacions on el control de l’energia i/o el moviment sigui necessari. En aquest àmbit, les tecnologies desenvolupades són: l’electricitat, l’electrònica de control, l’electrònica de potència, les comunicacions industrials i el control digital amb processadors. Les aplicacions d’aquestes tecnologies comprenen des de l’automatització de processos i màquines fins les energies renovables i la xarxa elèctrica, entre moltes altres.

    Article
    Open Access
    As new grid codes have been created to permit the integration of large scale photovoltaic power plants into the transmission system, the enhancement of the local control of the photovoltaic (PV) generators is necessary. ...
  • Admittance study of grid-connected VSCs for harmonic oscillatory instabilities 

    Sainz Sapera, Luis; Monjo, Luis; Cheah Mañé, Marc; Liang, Jun; Gomis Bellmunt, Oriol; Prieto Araujo, Eduardo (2019-09-17)
    Article
    Open Access
    Voltage source converters (VSCs) can reduce damping of grid-connected VSC systems at harmonic resonances, leading to system instability. The conductance of the VSC admittance can be shaped selecting appropriate VSC parameter ...

  • Optimal operation of isolated microgrids considering frequency constraints 

    Vidal Clos, Josep Andreu; Bullich Massagué, Eduard; Aragüés Peñalba, Mònica; Vinyals Canal, Guillem; Chillón Antón, Cristian; Prieto Araujo, Eduardo; Gomis Bellmunt, Oriol; Galceran Arellano, Samuel (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2019-01-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    Isolated microgrids must be able to perform autonomous operation without external grid support. This leads to a challenge when non-dispatchable generators are installed because power imbalances can produce frequency ...
  • Contribution of smart cities to the energy sustainability of the binomial between city and country 

    Villa Arrieta, Manuel Ricardo; Sumper, Andreas (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2019-08-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Cities are at the center of the transition to a decarbonized economy. The high consumption of electricity in these urban areas causes them to be the main focus of greenhouse gas emissions. However, they have a high margin ...
  • Optimal power flow operation of an interline current flow controller in an hybrid AC/DC meshed grid 

    Sau Bassols, Joan; Zhao, Q.; García González, Javier; Prieto Araujo, Eduardo; Gomis Bellmunt, Oriol (2019-12-01)
    Article
