    COM3LAB Course: Photovoltaics
    ../../fileadmin/user upload/LD Didactic/Bilder/Neuheiten 2014/COM3 fotovoltaik

    COM3LAB Photovoltaics Course

    The COM3LAB photovoltaics course deals with the construction and function of solar cells. Based on real experiments, the function of solar modules is investigated under various operation conditions. The microprocessor-controlled charging regulator runs the solar generator at the point of optimal power (maximum power point - MPP).

        Wind energy and power generation

        Without wind – no electricity. In vocational education it is necessary to go beyond the scope of this simplified realisation. The LEYBOLD STE "Wind energy" was developed in order to support this part of the training with a modern learning system.

          ELWE Technik Wind Power Plant

          With the "Wind Power Plant" experimental rig is an outstanding educational system of renewable energy generation. The student first acquires the basics of electrical power generation through exploitation of the kinetic energy existing in  the wind. The student learns several common methods of connecting the asynchronous generator to the grid for channelling off energy.

            ../../fileadmin/user upload/LD Didactic/Bilder/Neuheiten 2014/Wechselrotoren

            Machines with interchangeable rotors

            The equipment is equally suitable for student experiments in the laboratory with low voltage (400 V three-phase) and - with the mobile experimental rig - for teacher demonstrations in the classroom. The course provides simultaneously the necessary basic knowledge and deeper understanding of the behaviour of machines for a scientific interpretation of the machine characteristics.

            Didactic machines for mains voltage consist of a stator and various interchangeable rotors. Once the stator and rotor have been assembled, this results in an operational electrical machine in the 300 W class.

            The rotors are equipped with a B-endplate, fanwheel, cover cap and, if required, slip-rings, brushes, etc. In combination with the machine testing system, it is possible to attribute the characteristic curves of the machines to the properties of the specific rotor. Depending on the rotor used, the prototype machine then shows the typical properties of asynchronous and synchronous machines.

                COM3LAB courses Electropneumatics and automation technology

                The COM3LAB course "Electropneumatics" imparts the core knowledge of electropneumatics based on BIBB standard exercises.

                The COM3LAB course "Automation technology" explains the functional principle and the applications of a PLC. Based on many examples, learning the programming language PLC becomes child's play.

                Both courses can be combined together, so that complete process operations can be carried out and documented. The nature of the project work requires a self-reliant, independent and creative attitude.

                  ELWE Technik - ASIMA - The trainer for PLC and Logo

                  The well-proven ELWE Technik trainer for programming electrical control systems has been revised: Owing to the large number of plant simulations, the user is able to give the student an understanding of the entire spectrum of control programming in small steps. Here it is an advantage that the simple plant simulations can be performed with either a small control system (LOGO from Siemens) or with a PLC.

                  Numerous plant simulations with mask sets are available.

                    ELWE Technik - Box System VDE protection measures

                    Protection against electric shock

                    Protection measures are absolutely essential for every electrical profession. A system that makes this possible through a genuine hands-on approach is an indispensable part of good training. The box system combines this with theory and practice. The student learns to understand the functions through self-assembly of the equipment.
