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.
Legrand, global specialist in electrical and digital building infrastructures, announces the launch of a new generation wireless and batteryless switch. This technological innovation was developed in collaboration with CEA, a major player in research,
development and innovation.
The tools developed by CEA-Liten to dimension electrical and thermal networks can help to design network architectures coupling different energy vectors.
As the number of electronic devices people use every day grows, higher-yield, more compact power converters will be needed more than ever. In research conducted for a Carnot Energie du Futur project called Nice GaN, CEA-Liten, a CEA Tech institute, developed software that can rapidly dimension the magnetic components inside power converters.

CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
