The complexity of energy systems increases as more renewable generation and energy storage technologies are added to the grid. Diverse energy carriers are becoming interconnected and the grids are getting reliant on communication networks for timely operation. The arising complexity is difficult to model with the existing mathematical models and using existing simulation tools due to confinement of these models and tools to a subset of the interconnected system. To overcome this challenge, combined simulation (co-simulation) methodology is being deployed. In co-simulation, multiple models and tools are being interconnected to truthfully represent reality. In this work, we review several aspects of co-simulation. First, we look at interconnecting transmission and distribution grid simulations in order to enable collaboration between transmission system operators (TSOs) and distribution system operators (DSOs). Next, we investigate co-simulation as means to dynamic model exchange between TSOs. Finally, we analyze co-simulation capabilities for running experiments in remotely connected research labs.
