Abstract [en]

Management of various Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) in microgrids requires the integration of heterogeneous control devices and systems. Design and management of such integrated systems would benefit from the application of models that capture structural and functional aspects. These models are important in order to abstract the technical detail for planning and design in order to provide a basis for discussion amongst stakeholders and technical experts. Such models should provide semantics that adequately describe and define these aspects from the electro-technical to the information management perspective during design and implementation. In the discipline of IT management, Enterprise Architecture (EA) is a commonly used approach. The EA approach is typically based on metamodels with ArchiMate being one of the most well known. ArchiMate aims to enable holistic descriptions of businesses and their supporting IT using three layers, namely business, application and technology, from three perspectives, namely information, behavior and structure. While, invaluable for planning and management of large organizational IT, ArchiMate in its original form lacks the descriptive semantics required to specifically capture the high level of systems integration required for electrical process management. This paper proposes an extended ArchiMate metamodel for modeling microgrid components, the control systems, and the management and control of these integrated systems. The paper provides an example of how this can be applied to a proposed microgrid development project.
