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.
The Tunisian government has adopted an energy transition policy that includes multiplying the contribution of renewable energy tenfold within twelve years. To successfully make the transition, the country needed a smart-grid solution tailored to local conditions.
Liten, a CEA Tech institute, recently joined forces with France’s energy agency ADEME to assess the benefits combining electricity storage and renewable energy production could bring to micro-grids connected to the main grid on the island of Corsica.
