Initialization phase


Triggering of participant agents

Participant triggered by primary data

This activation protocol is used, if the agent is foreseen to only play back externally given, precalculated model results.


Participant triggered by secondary data

This is the usual activation protocol of a participant agent. The participant agent asks the scheduler to trigger it (the participant agent) in the same tick in order to achieve timely synchronization within the ready check window.


Participant triggered by itself

This case only occurs, when the participant model itself does not rely on any other data. This might be the case for a fixed feed in model as well as constant power load models.
