ERIGrid 2.0 European Research Infrastructure supporting Smart Grid Systems Technology Development, Validation and Roll Out


Past and ongoing research activities had their focus mainly on the validation of certain aspects of the smart grid. Because of this, an integrated approach for analysing and evaluating complex configurations in a cyber-physical system was embraced in the successful ERIGrid project. An extension of this work is addressed in the project ERIGrid 2.0, in which different in-depth issues are explored, such as the addition of further domains for the study of smart grids, and new methods to assess multi-domain experiments. Within ERIGrid 2.0,pan-european research infrastructures are again made available, including the possibilities for virtual access.

The ERIGrid 2.0 project follows an integrated approach and research services for analysing, validation and testing smart grid configurations are improved. Similar to the ERIGrid project, a main aspect of the project is to promote education for industrial and academic researchers by offering an exchange opportunity. Above that the access to the SESA lab to external researches is made available.

The main contributions of OFFIS are the specification for further extend the holistic process for defining and designing experiments for certain use cases and providing the co-simulation infrastructure via the SESA-Lab and mosaik.
