Rapid Control Prototyping for Networked Smart Grid Systems
Dr. Mario Faschang, AIT, Austria

In this talk a seamless development process for Smart Grid control systems will be presented, which starts with the first line of code and ends with an operating controller in the field. In order to reduce the risk of a malfunctioning controller, high value is given to the evaluation of the control system through simulation of the controlled distribution grid, co-simulation of communication and distribution grid, and controller hardware-in-the-loop evaluation.

The Organic Smart Home – An Organic Computing Architecture for Energy Management and Smart Grids
Dipl.-Wi.-Ing. Ingo Mauser, KIT, Germany

The presentation demonstrates how concepts from Organic Computing may support the controlled self-organization of the future smart grid. We propose a generic hierarchical architecture–the extended Observer/Controller Architecture–as a framework for various energy management systems. This architecture reflects the physical grid structures as well as user goals and enables adaptive responses to changing objectives as well as disturbances in the system. We developed the Organic Smart Home based on the generic architecture as a prototypical building energy management system that supports the optimization of all relevant energy carriers in buildings. Various simulations and evaluations in the KIT Energy Smart Home Lab and the FZI House of Living Labs show the applicability of the proposed architecture to the domains of energy management in smart grids.

SGAE: Development of distributed Smart Grid algorithms using mosaik and MAS
Dr.-Ing Astrid Nieße, OFFIS, Germany

The development of (distributed) Smart Grid algorithms heavily relies on simulation of large scale scenarios of the controlled components. Although a large body of research emerged on distributed Smart Grid algorithms, a sound methodological engineering approach is often missing. With the iterative process model Smart Grid Algorithm Engineering (SGAE) a process model has been introduced to achieve both: sound research and application relevant results.

At OFFIS, we use mosaik to compose simulation models when developing and evaluating distributed algorithms for the control of DER in different use cases. In this talk, an overview on SGAE and mosaik is given using a practical example from ongoing work on the development of multi-agent based distributed DER control.
