Physics

Design and optimization of systems for industrial sectors.
Études EPSILON

EPSILON is a company of the ALCEN group which meets various needs for the design and optimization of systems for large industrial sectors (energy, aeronautics, space).

By combining its multi-physical modeling and simulation capacity and its system vision, EPSILON makes it possible to shorten the time between the upstream phases of projects and validation tests.

EPSILON has chosen expertise by cultivating certain specialties for many years while having the operational performance of an industrial and high-tech group like ALCEN.

Skills

EPSILON’s know-how is now available in "offers" focusing on certain strategic themes of our customers. Let us quote for example:

  • the field of energy storage and more particularly batteries and associated thermal challenges,
  • the field of cryogenics,
  • the field of complex assemblies and the modeling of their properties over time,
  • the field of thermal management for electrical or electronic systems.

EPSILON's offers are constantly evolving, it is a guarantee of proximity with our main customers.

Example of a “Physics” project

Solar Orbiter - EPSILON

PAS, an experience close to the sun

PAS (Proton-Alpha Sensor) is an instrument of the SWA (Solar Wind Analyzer) assembly mounted on Solar Orbiter, a satellite aiming to approach the sun at 0.28 AU to observe the solar atmosphere with a high spatial resolution.

The objective of the mission is to provide comprehensible in-situ measurements of the solar wind in order to establish the fundamental physical links between the highly dynamic and magnetized atmosphere of the Sun, and the solar wind in all its states, from the calmest to the most disturbed.a The role of the instrument is to characterize the solar wind between 0.23 and 1.4UA, which supposes an environment close to the sun therefore very hostile, requiring an adapted thermal control. IRAP (Institute for Research in Astrophysics and Planetology) is in charge of the instrument.
