The so-called "energy revolution" and simultaneous digitization of the energy sector have increased the complexity of the energy supply. In future, the energy system will be made up of many small producers, storage facilities, and numerous heterogeneous ICT components for networking and intelligent control and automation.
One challenge of these smart grids is the accelerated rollout of information and communication technology, which dynamically develop and adapt the energy system – but in this application context they have never been tested for their interaction and interdependencies. In addition to this, external cyber-criminal attacks represent a significant risk and are a key issue.
The Smart Energy Simulation and Automation (SESA) Lab allows large-scale, real-time co-simulation of impacts on energy supply systems under realistic conditions to facilitate integration of new components into the system; to identify critical situations; and to develop any adaptations that might be required.
The »mosaik« simulation platform, developed by OFFIS and used for this purpose, is available to European research and industrial companies for testing of smart grid components.
