For the development of the various lines of research, as well as to carry out its many projects, the GTER has valuable infrastructure that forms the key technological support to carry out its activities. This infrastructure is constituted by the most advanced energetic and computer technologies

METEOROLOGICAL STATION

The station consists on an automatic measuring system, and is digitally recorded every 5 seconds, automatically and continuously, the values of a number of radiometric and meteorological variables since 1984. Data is post processed and validated following the international recommendations.

TESTING FACILITIES FOR PV SYSTEMS AND LOW TEMPERATURE SOLAR EQUIPMENT

This facility allows to determine the energy performance of any photovoltaic system and to test solar domestic equipment (compact), performing since the balance of power to the energy balance. It is also possible to perform energy analysis of the various components individually. For this purpose it is available different measuring equipment and data acquisition systems configurable according to the objectives of the test

400

DISH STIRLING

This system was originally integrated into the Envirodish project and funded by the German BMU and Junta de Andalucía.

TEST BENCH OF ABSORBER TUBES

This system has been designed and built in order to analyze the thermal energy loses and to compare the performance of the different absorber tubes available in the market.
