SOCOMEC has taken part in Nice Smart Valley, French demonstrator of the European project INTERFLEX, as the energy storage system manufacturer.

With the Lerins Island installation, the aim of Nice Smart Valley project is to prove the feasibility and performance of a medium voltage microgrid, based on several distributed storage systems.

This paper describes the tested use cases:

  • Islanding with or without black start,
  • synchro-coupling,
  • voltage/frequency generation in the limits required by the standards, grid stability data monitoring,
  • wireless management of several storage equipment.

All functionalities have been analyzed by theoretical study, experimental tests in a laboratory and in real conditions on the island.
