Multi-Energy Smart Grid Platform
Localized in Chambéry this platform's goal is to
evaluate energy management technologies on complicated networks (electricity/ gas/ heat) in real-world scenarios before deploying them.
This semi-virtual platform aims to
test actual components on real networks but whose applications are simulated (virtualized). This enables the creation of multiple usage profiles and the identification of their impact on the system's overall functionality. The platform's work attempts to dimension, control, and optimize:
Its design enables researchers to investigate various network configurations ranging from micro-ilotated to interconnected networks, test components, establish control strategies, test them, and therefore optimise their profitability.
This platform allows for functional testing of equipment, development and validation of EMS algorithms and smart charging / V2G (Vehicle-to-Grid) / V2H (Vehicle-to-Home) testing.
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.
The French National Solar Energy Institute (INES) developed and tested an energy management system coupled with battery-based energy storage. The solution is currently being rolled out at the Sainte Rose wind farm in Guadeloupe.
