2016 Workshop on Modeling and Simulation of Cyber-Physical Energy Systems

11 April 2016, Vienna, Austria

This workshop is part of the CPS Week, 11 - 14 April 2016, Vienna, Austria

Modern energy systems combine information technology, electrical and thermal infrastructure, autonomous roles and interact with other systems like markets and regulations. Existing modeling and simulation tools are not capable to cover such systems in all of their aspects, new languages, methods and tools are necessary. A combination of universal modeling languages and established, specialized tools like grid simulators and telecommunication simulators is necessary. This leads to modeling and co-simulating hybrid systems where for instance a multi-agent framework and an electric grid simulator are combined to investigate smart electric vehicle charging algorithms. It is especially the potential size of such systems that constitute a challenge for modeling and simulation. Implementing these future CPS is another substantial challenge. The designed algorithms need to be compact, computationally inexpensive, potentially self-organizing and intrinsically stable if applied to real energy systems.

This workshop is a platform for researchers and developers to exchange ideas about the following (not exhaustive) list of topics:

  • Hybrid modeling and simulation
  • Co-Simulation of multi-domain systems
  • Ontologies for energy systems
  • Applications of cyber-physical energy systems
  • Distributed algorithms and control
  • Standards in interfacing components
  • Formal languages for energy systems
  • Smart Grid modeling
  • Smart Cities modeling
  • Demand response and power quality
  • Design of simulations/experiments
