This chapter is motivated by the transformation of the energy system toward a smart grid economy which also necessitates new solutions in the field of decision support tools that are used by system operators and market stakeholders. Trends that can be observed in the management of smart grids are an increasing orientation toward digital and intelligent solutions and a stronger coupling between different energy sectors as well as a growing interaction between different stakeholders. Examples include the electrification of district heating via heat pumps, mobility applications, e.g., electric vehicles, or consumers who provide energy from rooftop photovoltaic systems to grid operators to ensure grid stability enabled by smart grid devices. These developments also have implications for the model-based representation of smart grid systems.
