Research training group Social Embeddedness of Autonomous Cyber Physical Systems (SEAS): Modelling of Social Embeddedness through Use Cases and Architecture Models in the Context of Innovation processes of ACPS


This project analyses the societal embeddedness of autonomous cyber physical systems (ACPS) in the energy domain. The utilisation of renewable energy resources requires an adaption of the existing energy system’s infrastructure. One approach to meet this challenge and enable efficient use are the so-called Smart Grids, which include information and communication technologies for the networking of different system components and stakeholders.

The project focuses on the evolution of ACPS based on the usage of the established Smart Grid Architecture Model (SGAM) reference framework, its standards and processes in developing an ACPS. The architecture model emphasises the technical interoperability rather than communication or coordination between stakeholders. Analysing the project cooperation, however, is not possible from a technical point of view. Therefore, the project aims to examine aspects of social cooperation.

It thereby investigates how SGAM is used in organisational innovation with the help of a case study. In addition to obtaining sociological knowledge, practical advice for the usage of SGAM should be derived.
