A multitude of disciplines is involved in the engineering of embedded systems One major challenge of engineering these systems is to consider the synchronization between different engineering disciplines on the process and artifact level in a coherent manner Process standards address this challenge by defining a transition between the involved activities of the disciplines but they do not provide sufficient support with respect to the corresponding artifacts and their relationships The missing artifact-oriented integration of the engineering disciplines (e g electrical engineering, software engineering, and mechanical engineering) within the systems engineering process leads to error-prone and cost-intensive synchronizations In recent years, we participate in a consortium of more than twenty partners from academia and industry that jointly developed the SPES (Software Platform Embedded Systems) Modeling Framework (SPES MF) to support a seamless artifact-based engineering of software for embedded systems In this paper, we present an approach that fosters the close integration of systems engineering and software engineering activities based on ISO/IEC 15288 and ISO/IEC 12207, by using the core concepts of the SPES MF as a general engineenng philosophy for the architectural design of embedded systems © 2014 The Authors.

The potential of adjusting the demand of certain appliances with time-flexible duty cycles is currently used for load balancing purposes only (e. g. Demand Side Management). However, a coordinated operation scheme for consumers and producers of electrical energy may also be used for grid stabilization or in general for a more efficient utilization of existing distribution grids, directly influencing line currents and voltage profiles along the network. © Oldenbourg Wissenschaftsverlag.

The German energy market is facing several challenges due to changes in regulation, technical advancements as well as increasing energy costs and climate achievements like CO 2 reduction. This results in changing requirements for companies in the energy market and thus business information systems, which support their core tasks and processes. Software product managers in energy and software developing companies in charge of driving the functional development of information systems have to deal with these challenges and need to develop new information systems or enhance existing ones. Conceptual models proved helpful to design and implement information systems within several industries. However, identification and management of models as well as impact analysis of model changes results difficult. This contribution describes methods to construct, use and maintain a domain specific reference model catalogue to support requirements analysis for software product manager in the German electricity and gas market. © Gabler Verlag 2011.

The increase in renewable power generation causes an overall decrease in conventional power generation from large-scale and highly predictable fossil-fuel power plants. Aside frommarket-based provision of active power schedules, these power plants are crucial for the provision of short-term automatic ancillary services such as frequency and voltage control. Substituting these plants for renewable generation units requires the latter to be capable of providing these ancillary services in order to guarantee a reliable and stable power supply. In this paper the authors present an integrated approach for identifying distributed coalitions of agents representing units capable of providing frequency response reserve while taking into account opportunity costs, device specific reliabilities (e. g. for photovoltaic orwind installations) aswell as the smallsignal stability of such coalitions.
