Callia – smart grid management approach

Development and demonstation of a new smart grid management approach based on the know-how and experiences of multiple regional R&D and demonstration projects. mehr

SCISSOR – Security in Trusted SCADA and Smart Grids

The SCISSOR project is concerned with the security of SCADA systems that are employed in industrial control processes – often in the context of critical infrastructures like energy, water, transport, finance, and health where security breaches potentially have devastating consequences. mehr

OPOSSUM – Open Flow based system for multi Energy Domain

OPOSSUM provides a Software-defined Networking infrastructure for multiple domains in a heterogeneous telecom infrastructure. mehr

OTITOS – Open Test Implementation for IEC 61850-90-5-based Transmission of Synchrophasor information

Testing of IEC 61850-90-5 synchrophasor transmissions based on the open and standardized testing language TTCN-3.

IPEN – IP Infrastructure for Energy Networks

Study of interdependencies between the communication and the electrical network, in particular, how impairments of the communication quality (e.g. large delays, packet loss) affect the quality of control in the electrical network. mehr

MINER – Measurement Infrastructure for Network Research

MINER is a programmable software platform that supports users in conducting distributed experiments. So far, MINER has been primarily used for performance evaluation in computer networks. However, the platform can be equally applied to conduct distributed experiments that are not related to network measurements. mehr

BIB4SGRID – Business Models including Batteries for Smart Grids

Renewable energy sources like solar and wind are naturally very volatile as they depend on the time of day or weather. This provides major challenges for power supply companies. mehr


The objective of this project is to study the application of software-defined networking (SDN) approaches to real-time Ethernet (RTE) networks. mehr

SCS – Smart Campus Salzburg

As part of Smart Campus Salzburg new concepts for the decentralized balancing of energy generation, consumption and storage using a trading-based approach for energy exchange are developed and necessary Smart Grid and Internet of Things technologies are researched and validated. mehr

Interfaces for energy management in Smart Grids

Study to identify relevant protocols and interfaces for energy management in Smart Grid infrastructures. mehr

OFSE_Grid – Open Flow Secure Grid

The potential of Open Flow for becoming a next generation Smart Grid communication infrastructure will be explored. Both the energy domain and the classical IP networking get their own router stack sharing the physical and L2-VPN layer. The project analyses the relevance of the scientific open questions, evaluates the modelling methods and performs validations with a rapid prototype. mehr
