Abstract: The purpose of the project is the incorporation of electrical heating based on a new generation of infrared heating film to the educational pattern house (EPH) defined with an educational purpose in the Workroom on Renewable Energy (WRE) to develop educational projects with the engineering students. In this project the heating film will be powered from a DC bus obtained from the European power line and simultaneously incorporate PV solar energy in order to reduce power consumption. Additionally, heating system has been defined modularly in order to provide energy efficiency and power reduction strategies.
