Future electrical power networks will be composed of large collections of autonomous components. Self-organization is an organizational concept that promises robust systems with the ability to adapt themselves to system perturbations and failures and thus may yield highly robust systems with the ability to scale freely to almost any size. In this position paper the authors describe the well-established process of use case based derivation of non-functional requirements in energy systems and propose a mapping strategy for aligning properties of self-organizing systems with the ICT- and automation system requirements. It is the strong belief of the authors that such a mapping will be a key factor in creating acceptance of and establishing self-organization in the domain of electrical energy systems. © IFIP International Federation for Information Processing 2014.
