    Smart distribution grids will be a combination of existing electrical networks controlled by distributed software applications communicating via communication networks. This means that not only the reliability of individual technologies are crucial, but the interoperability is also pivotal for the robustness of the smart distribution network. These individual research areas (electrical network, distributed software controller and communication network) have their corresponding fault handling strategies and several proven solutions exist to ensure reliability. The objective of our work is to integrate the solutions from these individual technologies. We focus on the interoperability and integration of individual fault handling strategies that are essential for improving the reliability and robustness of the overall smart distribution network. In this paper, we describe our approach in creating a single solution from the existing individual strategies to create a robust smart distribution network. We also present the details of the demonstrator design that is being built to evaluate our approach.
