Mosaik 2.1.3 released

We have improved the process to stop simulators after a simulation run and we did some minor bug fixes. Also we have updated the version of simpy and simpy.io to the last versions in the requirements file of mosaik. This solves the problem that the demo didn’t start. Furthermore the documentation has been updated.

You can get the new version by running pip install -U mosaik.

03. April 2015

You can register by using this form and sending it to mosaik-workshop at offis.de. Participants will be notified after easter holidays (07. April).

There is a preliminary agenda. You can find information about the workshop in this blog.

Mosaik prominently represented at the 10th Carnegie Mellon Conference on the Electricity Industry

The 10th Carnegie Mellon Conference on the Electricity Industry will be held from March 31 to April 1 in Pittsburgh, PA in the USA. It is co-chaired by Prof. Dr. Marija Ilic, Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), ECE and EPP and Prof. Dr. Sebastian Lehnhoff, OFFIS, Germany. The main topic of the conference is to discuss the state-of-the-art of testbeds for future electric power systems. These simulation environments are important means of helping the industry to simulate and assess new hardware and software solutions, as well as the effects of policy requirements. The conference will not only focus on current developments in the U. S. but there will also be a scientific exchange regarding the activities in Europe.

In the invited workshop following the conference, different simulation environments will be demonstrated and discussed - like the Smart Grid in a Room Simulator (SGRS) by CMU or mosaik by OFFIS.

Hands-on-Workshop Co-Simulation in Smart-Grids with mosaik

28. April 2015 13:00 - 29. April 2015 13:00

AIT - Austrian Institute of Technology, Vienna

As the electrical system is a critical infrastructure computer simulations are the means of choice to study the behavior of the system. A Smart Grid is a system which itself consists of a huge number of different subsystems. To model such a system the combination of different simulators is required. Mosaik is an open source tool that has established a large user base and provides the functionality to establish the data exchange between different simulators and to orchestrate the combined simulation run.

The workshop provides the opportunity for (prospective) users to meet users and developers of the co- simulation-tool mosaik.

Goals of the workshop:

  • Learning about the advantages and limitations of Smart Grid co-simulation with mosaik
  • Hands-on experience in model composition and large-scale scenario design with mosaik
  • Hands-on experience in hardware/software model integration into the mosaik ecosystem
  • Networking: getting to know mosaik users and developers with similar/complementary goals research questions

In order to facilitate efficient small working groups the number of participants is limited (to 25 persons). There will be a moderate registration fee to cover organizing expenses.

More information and a registration form here.

Mosaik 2.1.2 released

While we implemented some cool new features for mosaik-hdf5 we found some new bugs in mosaik which are now fixed in Mosaik 2.1.2 .

You can get the new version by running pip install -U mosaik.

Mosaik 2.1.1 released

Mosaik 2.1.1 now prints a warning message if a simulator’s entities were not connected. It also fixes some problems with the internal data-flow cache.

You can get the new version by running pip install -U mosaik.
