2022 1st International Workshop on Open Source Modelling and Simulation of Energy Systems (OSMSES)
April 4-5, 2022
Aachen, Germany


Simulation is an essential tool to tackle the complexity of modern energy systems and to define effective solutions to plan, design and operate energy systems. Energy systems are expected to incorporate electrical, gas and heat networks - so to achieve maximum usage of every form of energy available - and to include storage capacity. The distributed nature of new resources (generation and storage) and the participation of loads in energy management require fast, reactive control and protection. In this context the monitoring and control of modern energy systems are expected to be characterized by distribution of functions. At the same time a large use of communication media is envisioned. Interactions between continuous dynamics and discrete events are becoming more relevant due to the increasing number of controllable devices (e.g. power electronic converters in the electrical grids) and the use of networked control schemes. Energy systems, furthermore, are increasingly driven by market competition, and it is effect on system operation should also be considered. In this context several research groups have been developing modelling and simulation solutions to tackle those challenges and they have been distributing their software following an open source approach.

Author Information

The workshop deals with all the aspects related to use and development of open source tools for the modelling and simulation of power and energy systems. The main goal of the workshop is to encourage discussion on these topics among experts coming from academia, industry and utilities.

The main topics on which the workshop is expected to represent a qualified forum for providing contributions to the advancement of knowledge include, but are not limited to theone listed below.

• Electromagnetic transient simulation
• Dynamic phasor simulation
• Electromecchanical transient simulation
• Load flow – energy systems analysis
• Real-time simulation
• Co-Simulation
• Equation based modelling
• Building simulation
• Gas grids simulation
• Open models and meta-modeling
• Visualization

It is compulsory that Authors adhere to the IEEE Conference written paper format. You can find the paper templates in this link (

Paper submission and registration will open on the 1st October, 2021.

Prospective authors should submit a 5-6 pages FULL PAPER, consisting of a complete description of the proposed technical content and applicable research results, using the online submission system. After the review process, the decision could be: acceptance, minor revision or rejection. In case of revision, papers will be accepted only upon condition that the changes requested by the reviewers are satisfactorily addressed by the Authors in the final submitted papers, which will be checked by the Technical Program Committee. Final papers may be rejected if the reviewers’ remarks have not been properly addressed. A submission implies willingness to register and present the work if the paper is accepted for presentation at the workshop.

Authors of accepted and presented papers are encouraged to submit extended version of their conference paper for publication in the IEEE Open Journal of the Industrial Electronics Society.

Authors that decide to submit an extended version of their paper will receive a 15% discount on the publications costs and an additional 15% if they are members of the Industrial Electronics Society. Paper should be submitted at the latest 6 month after the conference.

A selected number of papers will be endorsed by the organizing committee and will receive full discount.

It is important to highlight that extended version of conference papers, should comply with IEEE regulations:


General Chair: Andrea Benigni (FZJ-RWTH)
