Abstract

Remote laboratories are a learning tool that allows carrying out tutorials without being physically present in the laboratory facilities. Such sort of platforms can be useful to complement student's learning with some practical activities. Timetables flexibility is the main advantage of remote laboratories for both students and teachers, since these laboratories are in operation 24 hours per day without requiring any supervisory assistance. The protection and distribution power systems have recently changed by the effect of the new information and communication technologies. As these changes have been carried out in such a short period of time, professionals with knowledge in these topics are required. Additionally it would be needed to include distribution automation concepts in current subjects and finally create didactic material to be used in practical sessions. This paper presents an e-laboratory of electrical protections that emulates the structure and conditions of a distribution grid. This laboratory is used to perform practical activities in degree and master subjects and professional courses dealing with electrical protections, automation and communications.
