Systèmes et applications des technologies de l'information et de l'énergie (SATIE)

Research unit


SATIE is an applied sciences laboratory which focuses on the study and improvement of information and electrical systems. The scientific challenges it takes on range from electrical engineering and applied physics to bio-microsystems.
The research carried out at SATIE is highly related to societal stakes such as the safety of industrial systems and workers, health (namely through its work on signal treatment and sensor sytems), or self-driving vehicles. Sustainable development is another one of its high priorities, researched through the development of integration solutions for power electronics devices, and of clean energy conversion chains.

Projects examples

- SATIE contributes in the development of high performance calibration and signal deconvolution algorithms to be used in radioastronomy observation. This work is done in the framework of the ANR MAGELLAN project and is aimed at very high density antenna arrays, such as the soon to be SKA (Square Kilometer Array)
- As a part of ANR backed project (QUALIPHE, PROGELEC program 2013-2016), SATIE researched the improvement of the conversion chains used in wave turbines. This original work can be transposed to any other fields involving highly-fluctuating power situations in electrical energy treatment (for instance in wind turbines or photovoltaic electricity production chains, or even traction chains in electric vehicules)
