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.


Wednesday, October 27, 2021, was held at the ENIT a workhsop around microgrids. The participants then visited our MICROGRID in the @QehnA laboratory of the ENIT, with the two platforms, SMARTNESS and Pla-NeTE
Mercredi 27 octobre 2021 a eu lieu à l’ENIT un workhsop autour des microréseaux. Les participants ont ensuite visité notre  Plateforme MICROGRID dans la salle QehnA de l’ENIT, avec ses deux plateformes, SMARTNESS et Pla-NeTE
