In this paper we analyse the operator point of view of the Web-of-Cells concept defined in the EU project ELECTRA, by identifying operator tasks into the supervision of a highly automated power system, and the information requirements to facilitate appropriate operator situation awareness. The paper intends to outline the methodology adopted, which is based on the cognitive work analysis framework, to provide an overview of the most interesting scenarios and to summarize the requirements analysis results. In order to derive required control room functionality, a set of relevant control room scenarios have been identified based on the Web-of-Cells control concept. We considered scenarios that challenge traditional control schemes, scenarios that caused major failures (i.e., blackouts) and scenarios that can be expected to appear in the future. For each scenario, information concerning network layout, triggering events, physical constraints, manually/automatic operations, operators’ tasks and relevant analytics have been analysed.
