Inria-EDF Strategic action MS4SG

Participants : Vincent Chevrier, Julien Vaubourg, Victorien Elvinger.

Laurent Ciarletta, Yannick Presse and Benjamin Segault (Madynes team, LORIA) are external collaborators.

The MS4SG (multi-simulation for smart grids) project is granted as a strategic action between Inria and EDF. This project is joint between Madynes and MAIA team from Inria-NGE and EDF R&D.

Smart-grids are electric supply grids endowed with smart capabilities because of the use of information and communication technologies. This perspective of smart grids corresponds to new challenges and it is needed to re-think the way electricity is supplied to customers and the power supply network regulated.

The simulation approach can be taken to envisage the supervision and regulation of these systems. Such an approach implies to integrate simulators coming from different domains: electrical networks, communication networks and information systems. As these domains can influence each other, smart-grids can be considered as a kind of complex system and we are faced with multi-modeling and multi-simulation issues: models in these simulators (and therefore simulators softwares) are heterogeneous (at least equation based and event based models), the softwares used are existing ones, etc.

The aim of the project is to provide primitives based on AA4MM in order to enable the multi-modeling and the multi-simulation of smart-grids.
