Abstract :

DYMASOS project addresses the issues associated with managing systems of systems, where the elements of the overall system are coupled by flows of physical quantities, such as electric power, steam or hot water, materials in a chemical plant, gas, potable water, etc. The project focuses on the theoretical approaches for dynamic management of physically coupled systems of systems driven by and validated on real-world use cases and supported by eventual deployment of prototyped methodologies and toolsets. The developed methods will lead to improved systems stability and lower resource consumption in industrial production, and in electric power generation and distribution.
