Purpose and goal

Participation in the design and testing of new software simulation tool supporting the FMI standard, providing power system models developed in Modelica. Those models where conceived to test the simulation capabilities of the OpenModelica and OMSimulator tools. Those Modelica models where exported into FMUs, to be tested in combination with other Modelica models, or FMUs, from other engineering domains. To this aim, KTH participated in the elaboration of tool requirements and developed a sample library of power systems and turbo-mechanical components.

Expected results and effects

KTH has participated in the project dissemination, with the Deliverable 5.3B. It includes the development of grid component models suitable for multi-domain simulation. One conference paper ( and one journal paper ( have been published. As well as participating in the design of the electrical demonstrator on WP6.2, in collaboration with Siemens Finspång.

Planned approach and implementation

KTH participated in the design and development of a set of software requirements for a new FMI-based simulation tool that has been developed within the project. Those requirements reflected the need for simulation of power systems models. In general, those requirements talk about simulation timing and values and units to be calculated. Another outcome is the creation of a simple network model and a set of components, which have been used in the elaboration of the electrical demonstration from WP6.2. These outcomes have been reported within Deliverable 5.3B.
