The January-July 2022 cycle of internal seminars QehnA (SIQ) is mainly dedicated to the theme « Microgrid : study, modelling and experimentation ».

SIQ aims to share knowledge among team members and inspire each of us with the opportunities offered by our equipment and platforms.
This first seminar in March was hosted by Mrs. Sonia MOUSSA , PostDOC who presented the simulation and emulation of photovoltaic modules and Mrs. Salma BENNAI who presented the simulation and emulation of grid faults.
Both presentations were based on the emulators available within the MICROGRID platform in the   laboratory.

General Assembly Qehna, 2022

QehnA research team met on Wednesday, February 2, 2022 to discuss the results and strengths of 2021 as well as the objectives and good resolutions for QehnA in 2022.

Internet training: Real-time simulation
MIL approach
Workshop led by Ms. Sondes SKANDER-MUSTAPHA with the participation of Ms.Sonia MOUSSA and the help of Mr.Idriss HASSAN
Venue: ENIT QehnA room
Dates: January 31, 2022-February 1, 2022

2A Opening Week (January 17-21, 2022)
Theme: Study of microgrids integrating photovoltaics and storage from experimental platforms Theme proposed by Prof Ilhem SLAMA BELKHODJA and led by the   research team of the Laboratory of Electrical Systems (LSE) of ENIT.

#microgrids #engineering #students
It was a real challenge to introduce microgrids integrating photovoltaic and storage to engineering students from different specialties : Electrical,  Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, during the Opening Week (January 17-21, 2022) organized at Ecole Nationale d’Ingénieurs de Tunis for 2d year  students.
The concepts of individual and collective self-consumption were discussed with experiments on the Pla-NETE and SMARTNESS platforms and their data analysis.
The workshop was animated by the QehnA research team of the Electrical Systems Laboratory (LSE) of ENIT.

17th January 2022, Master Defense ERASMUS MUNDUS Master DENSYS (Decentralised smart ENergy SYStems) related to Microgrid and the management of energy in decentralized energy systems and including the design of energy networks, demand-side management and optimization.

The master challenge, which started in February 2021, assesses the performance and techno-economic viability of a Micro-Grid pilot (SMARTNESS- Smart Micro-grid plAtfoRm wiTh aN Energy management SyStem) implemented in QehnA Laboratory at ENIT as a demonstration action of the Med-EcoSuRe project.

This challenge was proposed and supervised in collaboration with QehnA research Group, Mediterranean Renewable Energy Centre (MEDREC)  , partners of Med-EcoSuRe  and Gamco Energy and Lightency

17 Janvier 2022, Participation au Projet “PV-based Smart Irrigation System for Olive Field in Mediterranean context” dans le cadre du Master Erasmus Mundus DENSYS (Decentralised smart ENergy SYStems) , dans lequel, l’Université de Carthage et l’Université Tunis el Manar sont partenaires.

Le projet vise à étudier la faisabilité d’une solution complète d’agriculture intelligente pour les oliviers plantés sur le campus INSAT en utilisant des sous-systèmes technologiques modernes basés sur les Energies renouvelables, une plateforme de monitoring mettant en œuvre l’IoT, etc.. L’objectif est d’augmenter la production quantitative et qualitative de ces arbres aujourd’hui irrigués exclusivement pendant les périodes pluvieuses.
