Automatic Control Department (AUT)

The goal of the Automatic Department is to develop algorithmic solutions for the control and analysis of large-scale systems that take advantage of their natural structuring. These solutions should contribute to the the energy transition.

Presentation of the department

The Department is composed of the Automatic Control team.


The methodological and theoretical research is considered in the context of its application to energy management in positive energy buildings and distribution grids.

A key feature of the work is the consideration of strong interactions between upstream and behind-the-meter actors and the search for acceptablecompromises between the different actors of the energy system. The approaches must also ensure maximum confidentiality of the building's uses and the safety of the network. This work is carried out in collaboration with the socio-economic actors concerned (equipment manufacturers, building and grid operators, etc.).
