The introduction of many new energy solutions requires the adaptation of classical operation paradigms in power systems. In the standard paradigm, a power system is some equivalent of a synchronous generators, a power line and an uncontrollable load. This paradigm has been challenged by a diverse mix of challenges posed by renewable energy sources, demand response technologies and smartgrid concepts, affecting all areas of power system operation. Both, new control modes and changes in market design are required. This paper presents a mean-ends perspective to the analysis of the control structures and operation paradigms in present power systems. In a top-down approach, traditional frequency- and area-control mechanisms are formalized. It is demonstrated that future power system operation paradigms with different generation control modes and controllable demand can be modeled in a coherent way. Finally, the discussion is opened up toward a formalization of service-exchange between market participants.
