Multi-agent based simulations (MABS) of real world scenarios are attracting growing interest. Complex real world scenarios require deep knowledge and expertise which can only be provided by specialists in the application area. However, it cannot be expected that such experts understand agent-based technology and simulation. Consequently, tools are required,(More)
The goal of the information analysis process is to derive the information grammar which describes the communication language within some application domain. This process involves both domain experts and system analysts. Since good communication between these two partners is essential, a proper common language should be chosen. Natural language seems to be a(More)
The objective of service-oriented computing (SOC) is to construct software applications out of appropriate services available and executing in place anywhere across the Web. To achieve this objective requires that techniques for discovering and engaging services be developed and used across the lifetime of the service-based applications. Succeeding with SOC(More)
The current transformation process of how energy is supplied attracts great interest from many different market players. As a consequence, many proprietary solutions for “smart” energy applications are flooding the market. This turns out to be rather a problem than part of the solution for the systematic development of future energy grids.(More)
our energy landscape by means of regenerative, volatile and decentralized organized systems represents a major challenge for the creation of distributed control solutions. Standards are required that permit describing the variety of energy conversion systems and that enable an interoperable exchange of energy amounts in an open, flexible manner by(More)
In many countries, future energy supply, management, and consumption change completely compared to today's status. One reason is that sustainable energy production will rely on a large number of small and medium sized, decentralized energy production units. The aim is to replace a small number of large power plants. The energy supply strategy change puts(More)
