SG-rating – Putting values on smart grid architectures

Published Online: 2016-02-09 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/itit-2015-0044


Due to the integration of renewable energy ressources in the electricity grids, many new challenges have to be coped with. Therefore, new architectures are developed. To validate if a new architecture meets the requirements of transforming electricity grids into Smart Grids, a general evaluation-metric should be used.

Not all requirements and their satisfaction can be mapped on monetary values, so a differentiated view on different aspects of an Smart Grid architecture is preferable. To meet this purpose, the idea is to develop separate evaluation-metrics on each layer of the Smart Grid Architecture Model and to build one comprising evaluation scheme for Smart Grid Architectures.

Keywords: SGAM; toolbox; evaluation; metric
