The Electromechatronic Systems Research Centre (CISE), established at the University of Beira Interior (UBI), is focused on the study of electromechatronic systems, integrating into a single domain the following three main engineering areas: electrical, mechanical and electronic engineering. CISE comprises two dedicated research facilities, the Electromechatronic Systems Laboratory (LSE) at the University of Beira Interior (UBI), and the Guarda International Research Station on Renewable Energies (GIRS-RES), at the Polytechnic Institute of Guarda. LSE is equipped for simulation studies and experimental tests in some of the research areas of the electromechatronic systems domain. The research activities are complemented by GIRS-RES, which is especially dedicated to the renewable energies study. Due to the need for the installation of bulky equipment, outdoor area and proper conditions, this facility provides the required conditions.
