Abstract

This paper identifies challenges presented in unified co-simulation of power and communication network. There is no main stream freely available simulator which combines both power and network capabilities. First, review of existing simulators of smart grid is presented. Then, co-simulator scheme is proposed. Finally, a basic prototype of co-simulation based on open-source power and communication network is presented. Test cases show that our proposed co-simulator has faster execution time compared to standalone simulations.
