Electrical Characterization Laboratory
In the Energy Systems Integration Facility's Electrical Characterization Laboratory, researchers test the ability of electrical equipment to withstand high-voltage surges and high-current faults. A control room provides a safe location for researchers and video links to the test area.
The Electrical Characterization Laboratory offers the following capability.
The high-voltage characterization hub offers a Class 1, Div 2 lab with moderate temperature control and attached control room for performing volatile or hazardous testing of distributed energy resources.
Air handling unit with primary heating and secondary chilled water; control room; Class 1, Division 1 electrical infrastructure
