Abstract

The European and International energy policy targets energy efficiency improvement and
CO2 reduction. Therefore, renewables are a key factor within our future energy supply system. In
order to ensure security of energy supply and to avoid load peaks, highly interconnected power
grids, also known as smart grids, have to deal with irregularities of phenomena such as sunlight,
wind, tides and intelligently control these dynamic changes. Such a smart grid is denoted as a
complex system, characterized by a large quantity of heterogeneous actors, collaborating within a
dynamic and highly interconnected network. This results in big challenges in the steps planning,
realizing and expanding such a system. These steps need to be based on a standardized description
process to cope with the aforementioned challenges. In this paper, we combine the Smart Grid
Architecture Model (SGAM) with the Use Case Methodology for describing processes in complex
systems. Our new UC-SGAM Methodology exploits the benefits of both approaches and can also
be applied to the Reference Architecture Model Industry 4.0 (RAMI4.0). The developed
methodology is examined on two overload scenarios of the smart grid. It strongly enhances
comparability and simplifies the visualization of complex use cases.
