The term Smart Grid describes the effort to enable the integration of large numbers of renewable distributed energy resources into the power grid. The fluctuations inherent in renewable energy resources imply the need to also integrate the demand side actively into the control of the power system. For this effort to succeed, a new control infrastructure has to be put into place. The power system is a distributed system, and it needs a sophisticated communication framework to cope with communication problems, such as delays and failures. Recently, behaviour descriptions have been proposed as an alternative to synchronous communication in power systems, especially with small distributed energy resources. This article presents an implementation of behaviour descriptions and an experiment that has been carried out to evaluate the feasibility of such an approach. © 2011 IEEE.
