Liten's "smart energy systems" strategy addresses the unique characteristics and constraints of each scale in these multi-scale systems.
Dimensioning of PV systems (renvoi page système PV) to support frequency regulation.
Selection of architectures and components that ensure optimal grid stability.
Hybrid renewable energy/battery systems.
Off-grid systems combining solar energy and generators.
Liten research is focusing on:
These tools, designed as enablers, are validation tested on a pilot grid (either on physical components or emulators) before they are rolled out in real-world environments.
Electrolyzers used to produce hydrogen from electricity, can help balance supply and demand on electricity grids. CEA-Liten, a CEA Tech institute, recently took part in the EU QualyGridS project, which addressed the topic.
Managing the intermittent nature of renewable energy production is one of the challenges to grid integration. CEA-Liten, a CEA Tech institute, developed a decision-assistance tool to optimize energy storage and ensure better grid regulation for a variety of time horizons.
In research conducted for the EU m2M-grid project, CEA-Liten, a CEA Tech institute, developed advanced microgrid coordination tools that were successfully tested on a real grid operated by electric utility SOREA.
