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.
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.

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.
