Table 2 Evaluation criteria sorted by categories. Inspired by Petersen et al. (2012), Barth et al. (2018) and Degefa et al. (2021)

From: Choosing the right model for unified flexibility modeling

Device related criteria Application related criteria
Variety of devices Technical criteria Time related criteria Implementation and comprehensibility Aggregation
Generators Effiencies and losses Ramping Detailed mathematical description Mathematically described aggregation
Loads Load changes Resting periods Open source code available Description of flexibility pricing
Storages Available power Device availability Available database for simulation Mapping of dependencies (time or technical/both)
Stochastic devices Total amount of available energy Time shiftable processes Scientific relevance (cited/implemented) Discrete time resolution
  Sector coupling   Low complexity of flexibility representation
