The Research Group in Electrical Technologies for Sustainable and Renewable Energy (TEP-023) has its headquarters in the Higher Polytechnic School of Algeciras, University of Cadiz, Spain.

The Research Group activities focus on the development of electrical, electronics and control technologies for sustainable and renewable energy based on:

  • Renewable energy
  • Distributed generation
  • Hydrogen and fuel cells
  • Energy storage
  • Smart grids
  • Green electric vehicles
  • Power converters and control
  • Improvement of electric power quality
  • Improvement of grid integration of distributed generation
  • Energy savings and efficiency

More specific research lines:

  • Wind energy:
      • Control and operation of wind turbines and wind farms
      • Energy storage and hydrogen production in wind turbines and wind farms
      • FACTS devices for improving the power quality and grid integration of wind turbines and wind farms
      • Offshore energy and HVDC
  • Smart grids with renewable energy:
