Abstract

A "Run Time Scheduler" (RunTS) is presented, a minimalist Discrete Event
Simulator able to sequence the operation of multiple simulators, coordinating a simulation of
several elements so to form a whole system. Dynamic cause-effect chains may emerge.

In operation the net simulation possesses a known steady-state other than when changed.
RunTS controls the application of state-changes, passing these to specific simulators to
determine new steady-states. Messages can pass between simulations concerning
configuration data, commands and results. Simulators must meet connectability criteria.

The method allows variable periods between simulation stages rather than a fixed tempo, and
can undertake specific simulation sequences unique to each event, through use of a novel per-event
state-machine.

RunTS is part of INSim, a Smart Grid simulator working with a mix of components including
Electric Vehicles, Smart Agents and OpenDSS, a power network analysis tool.
