With the development of renewable energies, storage systems, electric vehicles and hydrogen production, the stability of the electricity network will no longer be guaranteed as long as the usual control methods are retained. The objective of the thesis is to propose controls at the level of each of these components in order to improve the stability of the electrical system The approach followed will be: 1) Development of aggregate models of these components 2) Behavior analysis for various types of controls 3) Comparison and sensitivity study by simulation for different energy mixes 4) Validation on our smartgrid platform (1MVA, with LV and MV subnets) The long-term objective is to make it possible to move towards a network with a very large share of renewable energy, making the most of the flexibilities offered by diffuse production and consumption.
