With the research and development project, we have implemented a "Model Smart Network" in Caucete city (San Juan-Argentina) that allows to set up sustainable consumption and generation patterns, to promote a more efficient electric supply, thus, a more rational and economical use of electric power.

The aim is to implement a smart electric network in the city through the incorporation of distributed solar energy and smart remote measurement systems and network monitoring. This allows us to get information on the network and the users, that is processed and analyzed in the Smart Network Analyzing Laboratory and Simulator (LASRI); in which computer tools are developed to support-ease the operation tasks in the same network.

For the director of Grupo REID I+D, Dr. Eng. Mauricio Samper “to have the chance of presenting the results of this project in BIEL Light + Building Buenos Aires is a unique opportunity to show all that we are doing in the Instituto de Energía Eléctrica (IEE).”

REID grupo I+D carries on this project of technological and social development whose challenge is to set up a smart network with a better use of obtained information for the companies to manage better their resources, and the citizens to manage or use their consumption efficiently. 

On his part, Eng. Gustavo Barón, head of Smart Network Analyzing Laboratory and Simulator (LASRI) of IEE said: “this electric network aims to expand its horizons to the whole province and to turn San Juan into an electric technological pole, at the same level of the most important cities worldwide.” 

REID I+D is a research and interdisciplinary development team in which electric, electronic, electromechanical and computer engineers take part and that belongs to Instituto de Energía Eléctrica (IEE), executing unit that depends on Universidad Nacional de San Juan (UNSJ) and CONICET. 

BIEL Light + Building Buenos Aires will be carried out on September 11-14, 2019 in La Rural Trade Center. 

The exhibition is only for businessmen and professionals of the sector.  With an invitation: free of charge. People under 16 years will not be admitted, even if attending with an adult.
