Workshop "Resilience and Security in Digitalized Energy Systems – Definitions, metrics and evaluation methods"

Workshop "Resilience and Security in Digitalized Energy Systems – Definitions, metrics and evaluation methods"

Jorge Velasquez is an electrical engineer from Colombia. He worked as a consultant in energy efficiency and renewable energy projects all across Latin America.
In 2013 he came to Oldenburg to study a master degree in the Postgraduate Program in Renewable Energies (PPRE) at the Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg. After one year he started working at the OFFIS as a student assistant where he developed his master thesis project “Evaluation and Comparison of Different Coupling Techniques between Hardware and Software Tools for Smart Grid Simulation” at the Simulation and Automation of Complex Energy Systems group.
His current research interests include simulation and automation of control strategies with a focus on distribution power systems and grid integration of renewable energy technologies.

Workshop "Resilience and Security in Digitalized Energy Systems – Definitions, metrics and evaluation methods"

What cannot be measured cannot be controlled. The increased penetration of decentralized generation requires the implementation of novel and complex technologies. With this in mind, the question is how to guarantee that there is a resilient and secure operation of the new electrical power systems and at the same time reducing the impact of the day to day operation and keeping the cost relatively low. One possibility is to test prototypes and new solutions in specialized laboratories under controlled conditions. For this reason the institute for information technology (OFFIS) has gathered together experts across Europe, ranging from research institutes to industry partners, to discuss the main challenges and how to overcome them in the workshop "Resilience and Security in Digitalized Energy Systems – Definitions, metrics and evaluation methods".

As previously mentioned, the aim of the workshop has been to gather insights on how to define and measure the level of resilience and security of modern electrical power systems as well as its associated information and communication architectures.

The event took place on the 12th of October, and started with an introduction to security and resilience with the aim to unify concepts and create a common understanding of the topic. The following session has been on methods and tools to assess and manage future electrical power systems as well as the application of the current state of the art and present developments. Finally, the event concluded with a presentation of recent developments from both the industry, in this instance a demonstration from the companies Antycip Simulations and OPAL RT, as well as the new developments in our own Cyber Resilience Laboratory.
