MODAM: A MODular Agent-based Modelling framework
Boulaire, Fanny, Utting, Mark, & Drogemuller, Robin (2013) MODAM: A MODular Agent-based Modelling framework. In Proceedings of the 2nd International Workshop on Software Engineering Challenges for the Smart Grid as part of 35th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2013), IEEE, San Fransisco, CA, USA, pp. 33-40.
Designing the smart grid requires combining varied models. As their number increases, so does the complexity of the software. Having a well thought architecture for the software then becomes crucial. This paper presents MODAM, a framework designed to combine agent-based models in a flexible and extensible manner, using well known software engineering design solutions (OSGi specification  and Eclipse plugins ). Details on how to build a modular agent-based model for the smart grid are given in this paper, illustrated by an example for a small network.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
