Description One of the main objectives of the Energy Center LAB initiative consists on designing a Multi-Energy-System (MES) Co-Simulation Platform able to qualitatively and quantitatively solve energetic transition scenarios [1]. The co-simulation infrastructure of Energy Center Lab resides on Mosaik, a flexible Smart Grid co-simulation framework that allows you to reuse and combine existing simulation models and simulators to create large-scale Smart Grid scenarios. Simulations sometimes need real hardware components to test their functionalities in complex smart grid scenarios. This co-simulation approach is called Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL). The aims of the thesis consist on extending Mosaik
1. to build distributed simulation scenarios by exploiting publish-subscribe (i.e. MQTT, DDS) and/or request-response (i.e. HTTP REST) protocols;
2. to enable a bidirectional communication with digital real time simulators (e.g. OpalRT) to enable HIL simulations.


The candidate will be required to:
1. study the functionalities and requirements of Mosaik framework;
2. deploy a simple Mosaik test-bed in a distributed cloud environment;
3. extend Mosaik to exploit MQTT, DDS, HTTP REST;
4. extend Mosaik to integrate the OpalRT simulator;
5. develop a test-bed smart grid scenario to test the whole co-simulation platform and the new software components;
6. evaluate the performances of the overall infrastructure.
