TECNALIA is the largest applied research and technological development centre in Spain, a European benchmark and member of the Basque Research and Technology Alliance. TECNALIA works with companies and institutions to improve their competitiveness, people’s quality of life and achieve sustainable growth, thanks to a team of more than 1,500 people committed to building a better world through technological research and innovation. This is why TECNALIA’s research has a real impact on society and generates benefits in the form of quality of life and progress.

Its main areas of action are: smart manufacturing, digital transformation, energy transition, sustainable mobility, health and food, urban ecosystem and circular economy.

In the latest brand awareness and positioning study carried out by the European Research Survey (ERS) in 2022, TECNALIA tops the list regarding R&D and Innovation brand awareness.

Role under the Project

Tecnalia leads the development of fast-response component-level control techniques for power electronics interfaced distributed energy resources in DC grids. It also participates in those tasks related to the building of simulation models of the use cases.

These models will be used to validate through simulations the viability of the use cases and the new products and tools developed in the project. Along the same lines, it also collaborates in the development of a small-signal stability tool to evaluate the stability of DC grids and to facilitate an optimum tuning of the controllers.

Tecnalia also provides a low-voltage living lab with hardware in the loop facilities for the experimental testing and qualification in a controlled environment of the new low-voltage solutions developed in the project before its installation in the demonstrators.
