LINK is the architectural paradigm* of Smar Grids derived from their fractal pattern. It enables the modeling of the entire power system i.e. high-, medium- and low voltage levels, and the customer plants and the description of all operation processes i.e. load - production balance, voltage assessment, demand response, ... .
LINK - Paradigm is defined as a set of one or more electrical appliances i.e. a grid part, a storage or a producer device, the controlling schema and the interface.
