Why Multi-level ICT control

Smart grids are viewed as an ICT-supported energy “Power Web” comprising several interacting layers: from the physical-electrical infrastructure to a system consisting of prosumers, transporters and traders of electricity.

At every level a separate equilibrium or optimum is aimed for. In view of the interdependencies between the layers, their variability, and errors that might occur, instabilities and serious disruptions of the Power Web might easily result.

Therefore, dynamic control of the system at and over different layers is indispensable.

In order to reach a robust and self-configuring smart grid, we aim to:

  1. provide a formal description of the behavior of the Power Web based upon the individual models used to describe the separate layers
  2. define the proper interfaces between the layers,
    and
  3. control the individual optimizations and equilibria in such a way that robustness and safety of the PowerWeb as a whole can be realized
