School of Engineering and IT

Systems Test Lab

Renewable Energy students have access to a range of renewable energy systems not only at the School of Engineering and Information Technology, but also at the Renewable Energy Systems Laboratory at the University’s Research Institute for Sustainable Energy (RISE). These facilities include:

  • photovoltaic (PV)/wind/diesel/battery hybrid systems,
  • low temperature solar thermal systems,
  • a solar simulator for PV module tests,
  • a 10 kW PV trough concentrator system,
  • an educational PV water pumping system, and;
  • various grid connected PV systems - ours is currently the only NATA certified lab testing inverters and solar system components in Australia.
