In this work we present an adoption of systems engineering methodology for design and assessment of a Virtual Power System (VPS). The VPS has been defined as an aggregation of distributed energy resources, consumers and storages which can operate autonomously, and is presented to the power system as a single unit in technical and commercial terms. The complexity of these critical systems is tackled by means of systems engineering. We have applied our approach in scope of a research project AlpEnergy.
