Abstract

The electrical grid is transitioning towards a so-called Smart Grid (SG), which facilitates advanced management and control mechanisms through the integration of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) but also introduces novel challenges resulting from cyber-physical interdependencies. Therefore, this transition requires a transformation of the system’s structure and control mechanisms to meet the requirements for future SGs. However, it is important to examine and thoroughly test those novel approaches to enable a safe and smooth system change. These tests need to be conducted in a safe environment due to the potential of causing system failures, which may result in monetary losses and ultimately threaten human lives. Modeling and simulation is an established technique for testing and evaluating critical systems in a safe environment. In this context, the paper aims at providing an overview of current modeling and simulation tools related to future SGs, by presenting them alongside corresponding challenges for the simulation of ICT, electrical grids and combined cyber-physical approaches.
