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.
The CEA at INES is partner in this project, led by the company Lumila, of a photovoltaic charging station not connected to the grid, intended for beekeepers in Burkina Faso.
STEADYSUN, a CEA partner in INES since its creation in 2013 and an associate partner of the Institute for Energy Transition INES.2S since its creation, has just joined the ITE consortium.
