Holistic Test Description for Validating Cyber-Physical Energy Systems

Strasser, Thomas I.; Heussen, Kai; Teimourzadeh, Payam; Babazadeh, Davood; Degefa, Merkebu Zenebe

Smart energy solutions aim to modify and optimise the operation of existing energy infrastructure. Such cyber-physical technology must be mature before deployment to the actual infrastructure, and competitive solutions will have to be compliant to standards still under development. Achieving the technology readiness and harmonisation requires reproducible experiments and appropriately realistic testing environments. Such testbeds for multi-domain cyber-physical experiments are complex in and of themselves. Therefore, European project ERIGrid develops a method for the scoping and design of experiments where both testbed and solution each require detailed expertise. The new Holistic Test Description (HTD) method facilitates the conception, deconstruction and reproduction of complex experimental designs in the domains of cyber-physical energy systems. For more information about the HTD method are provided at the corresponding project page.

This webinar focused on the following topics:

• overview of holistic testing description method,
• highlights from three years’ experience with the holistic testing approach,
• detailed example of the holistic testing approach in a multi-domain test case realised in a multi-laboratory testbed within the ERIGrid project.
