Coupling of independent models in the form of a co-simulation is a rather new approach for design and analysis of Smart Grids. However, uncertainty of model parameters and outputs decreases the significance of simulation results. Therefore, this paper presents an ensemble-based uncertainty quantification system as an extension to the already existing co-simulation framework mosaik.
