Claude Rebattet has a postgraduate degree in geophysics and the environment (Grenoble, 1982), a doctorate in fluid mechanics (Aix Marseille, 1985) and an executive master’s degree in technology management and innovation (GEM, 2012). He has spent his career at Grenoble INP as a research engineer and has been the director of the CREMHYG (Grenoble Hydraulic Machinery Research and Testing Centre) technology platform since 1998.
His activities are focused on the energy application field in relation with water, he collaborates with companies and structures that facilitate the transfer of knowledge and innovation in public and private mode: Hydro21 (association), Tenerrdis, Viameca and Axelera (competitiveness clusters), Carnot Energy of the Future Institute (association), Supergrid Institute (ITE), ..
The preferred themes and structuring actions are centred on energy production and storage and the hybridization of systems for the flexibility of services in connection with electrical distribution.
Claude Rebattet participates in many collaborative projects to develop applied research and collaborates in training courses at Grenoble INP and GEM for the ENSE3 engineering course, the MS energy master’s degree or the EDF continuing education course. He manages a test platform for model turbines (production) and pump turbines (storage) for machines developed in the industrial context. Other hydraulic test benches have been developed at CREMHYG for cavitation studies, pump studies, hydroacoustic behaviour of systems, study of new concepts and associated services (smartgrid, microgrid, among others).
