An integrated modelling approach for spatial-aware federated simulation
Federated simulation provides a powerful means to analyze dynamics of inter-connected large-scale systems like networks of critical infrastructures (CI) including power supply systems, railway systems, telecommunication networks, etc. Building a sound federation model that can be used for federated simulations is however a challenging task, especially when the spatial aspects of the sophisticated networks need to be considered. In this paper, an integrated modelling approach is proposed to reduce the effort in building such spatial models for federated simulation. It aims to automatically produce consistent models that can be accepted by domain-specific simulators like SIEMENS PSS SINCAL and ns-3, in particularly for use cases where federation models evolve frequently. This is a work in progress. The modelling approach itself is general purpose and not limited to certain domains like power or telecommunication systems.
