The aim of this task is to network and coordinate a set of intelligent integrated machines developed in Tasks 1, 2 and 3, within relevant and innovative applications.
T6.1: interconnected intelligent machines for wind generation with DC network
This sub-task is associated with the use of several intelligent electrical machines in the production of electricity through wind systems.
The integration of machines developed in tasks 2 and 3 should allow an increase in the reliability of the assembly. In particular, high-voltage DC (HVDC) networks will be positioned with new interconnection architectures for wind turbine clusters, the possibility of operating these architectures in degraded mode, and also the constraints of interaction between machines rotating and high power electronics (new MMC converters for example).
T6.2: interconnected intelligent machines for production in embedded systems
This subtask is associated with the integration of several intelligent electrical machines in the production of energy for embedded systems (aeronautical networks for example).
The integration of machines developed in tasks 2 and 3 should allow an increase in the reliability of the assembly. The necessary redundancy of such production subsystems suggests that the concept of “Plug and Play” machines is particularly suitable. One of the major problems of such confined networks remains stability. A particular effort on this point will be achieved through multi-objective
T6.3: intelligent interconnected machines for motorisation in transport
This sub-task is associated with the integration of several intelligent electrical machines in electric or hybrid transport systems.
It will rely in particular on the machines developed in Tasks 2 and 3, to achieve better performances of current traction systems or to develop new concepts. The use of these interconnected machines should allow power segmentation to reduce the cost of these traction chains, increasing the overall efficiency and allowing degraded operations. The sensitivity to the low voltage DC bus will be studied in particular. In order to guarantee the relevance of the choice of target vehicles, this sub-task will be carried out within the framework of a partnership with the national scientific network MEGEVH which works on the energy management of electric and hybrid vehicles.
T6.4: Intelligent machines interconnected in the presence of energy storage
This sub-task is associated with the integration of auxiliary storage systems for an interconnected set of intelligent integrated machines.
The three applications of sub-tasks T6.1 to T6.3 are potentially targeted by this type of storage in order to improve the interaction between the DC bus and the set of interconnected machines. Different types of storage (upstream, downstream, direct, indirect, electrical or other) will be studied, as well as the management of their power flow, in relevant support of the power flows between the DC bus and the target machines. In addition, high-efficiency converters (task 1) will be associated with these storage systems to ensure their steering.
