About AIT Austrian Institute of Technology
At the AIT Center for Energy over 250 experts are developing sustainable solutions for our future energy system. The center combines longstanding experience and scientific excellence with high quality laboratory infrastructure and a global network to offer companies innovative applied research services, providing them with a competitive edge in this promising market.
In the field of e-mobility the AIT Center for Energy provides testing infrastructure with an ideal framework to evaluate the interactions between Electric Vehicles (EV), Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE), the electric power system and the ICT environment of the smart grid. This feature has been generated by a unique Hardware In the Loop setup that allows to directly couple the simulation environment with real hardware equipment. The testing infrastructure for EVs and EVSEs is embedded in the AIT SmartEST laboratory, which offers a testing and research infrastructure for future-oriented smart energy network systems.
