— Large scale dissemination of power grid entities such as distributed energy resources (DERs), electric vehicles (EVs), and smart meters has provided diverse challenges for Smart Grid automation. Novel control models such as virtual power plants (VPPs), microgrids, and smart houses introduce a new set of automation and integration demands that surpass(More)
Dynamic and adaptable integration of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) into novel power system assets, such as microgrids, is one of the key prerequisites for accelerated Smart Grid deployment. By using standardized network interfaces and semantic descriptions for remotely controllable DERs, it is possible to develop intelligent microgrid applications(More)
—Fast charging stations (FCS) are able to recharge plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (pHEVs) in less than half an hour, thus representing an appealing concept to vehicle owners since the off-road time is similar as for refuelling at conventional public gas stations. However, since these FCS plugs have power ratings of up to 100 kW, they may expose the(More)
—Smart Grid is designated by variety of stakeholders and thus is having interoperability as a crucial prerequisite for successful Smart Grid solutions deployment. The international standard IEC 61850 defines future-proof automation architecture for power systems and represents the most prominent standards-compliant approach which enables optimized Smart(More)
