Abstract

Smart grids rely on the integration of distributed energy resources towards an intelligent and distributed manner to organize the electrical power grid enabled by a bidirectional flow of information to improve reliability and robustness, fault detection and system operation, and plug-and-playability of energy devices. The integration of information and communication technologies (ICT), one of the key enablers of smart grids, will ease the deployment of intelligent and distributed systems implementing the automation functions. In this context, there is a need to assess how these systems, developed using these emergent technologies, e.g., multi-agent systems, data analytics and machine learning, will behave and affect the working conditions of the power grid. This paper aims to explore the development of a transparent and loose-coupled interface between the behavioral control system and the physical or simulated power system environment, in a coupled simulation perspective, aiming to assess and improve the development of such systems during the design phase.
