Brief description of the institution:

The University of Jaén (UJA) is an EHEA medium-sized Spanish public university (some 16000 students and almost 1000 lecturers) that was established in 1993 and is organized into 6 main Schools/Faculties (Faculty of Law and Social Sciences, Faculty of Social Work, Faculty of Human Sciences, Faculty of Experimental Sciences, Faculty of Health Sciences and two Schools of Engineering). In addition to its 124 research groups, the University of Jaén is proud of its 4 Advanced Research Centers (Earth Sciences, Energy and Environmental Sciences, Olive Oil Research and Development, and Computational Sciences) and of its Institute on Iberian Archaeology Research. Moreover, UJA is integrated into a university network recognized as Campus of International Excellence in the fields of Agrifood (CEIA3), Climate Change (CamBio) and Historical Heritage (PatrimoniUN10).

UJA permanently welcomes new foreign research proposals as part of a conscious effort to increase its international profile and widen both its knowledge and its horizons.

Brief description of the Centre/Research Group (including URL if applicable):

The Photovoltaic Solar Energy Research Group was founded in 1989 and it is integrated by Associate, Assistant and Full Professors from different knowledge areas (Electronic and Electrical Engineering). Its R&D activities are focused on the photovoltaic (PV) technology and it has gained through the years the necessary skills and expertise to accomplish large-scale projects. Some remarkable achievements have been made in the following fields of knowledge:

a)   Photovoltaic Grid-Connected Systems (solutions for architectural integration of PV, self-consumption and energy balance with the grid, analysis of profitability and rates of penetration, microgrids, hybrid systems, safety measures addressed to protect people, etc.)

b)   PV modules characterization (concentrating, thin-film, etc.)

c)   PV system (Test and measurement procedures, quality control procedures, outdoors electrical modelling, electronic applications, distance monitoring)

d)   PV in developing countries (rural electrification)

e)   PV Knowledge transfer (international training courses),

Project description:

-  Optimization of smart systems of photovoltaic self-consumption management in a high energy-efficient housing. This project aims design, analysis and evaluation of photovoltaic grid connected systems for increasing the self-consumption using batteries.

-  New optical design of ultra-high concentrator photovoltaics module. The main objective of this project is to develop and propose new designs of concentrators based on using small mirrors which improve the efficiency, acceptance angle and irradiance uniformity obtained with other designs.
