Cubicles infrastructure

The GREiA research group, from the University of Lleida, has an experimental set-up in Puigverd de Lleida, formed by a series of cubicles, as a simulation of buildings, in order to develop part of their research in the field of the construction.

Nowadays, there are 22 diferent cubicles equipped each of them with a heat pump and electrical oil radiators.

The research carried out in this experimental set-up is:

1) Cooling/heating of buildings:

– impact of PCM in the comfort temperature

– impact of PCM in the consumption of HVAC

– Comparison of different constructive solutions

2) Different type of experimental can be performed to test:

– Passive technologies

– Active technologies

3) Comparative studies between the different cucibles
