MOSAIK - SMART GRID SIMULATION API - Toward a Semantic based Standard for Interchanging Smart Grid Simulations

Steffen Schütte, Stefan Scherfke, Michael Sonnenschein

Abstract

Simulation is an important method to test and evaluate new control mechanisms for future Smart Grids. To generate sound simulation results one has to use validated and established simulation models. In this paper we present the first two out of six layers of our approach to a modular simulation framework, called mosaik. It will allows to specify, compose and simulate Smart Grid scenarios based on the reuse of existing, technologically heterogeneous simulation models. The layers presented here include a syntactic layer defining an interface for Smart Grid simulators and a semantic layer implemented using a domain-specific language that allows to describe the structure and semantics of the simulator that is interfaced.
