It is expected that the Internet of Things (IoT) provides the foundational infrastructure for smart cities, and making ICT an enabling technology to meet major challenges associated with climate change, energy efficiency, mobility and future services. On the other hand a smart city with these requirements is usually evolving through incremental automation and integration of new components, that are digital or physical components or smart devices. To handle the growing scale and complexity of a system, an adaptive modelling method is needed for dynamic analysis and verification and/or validation, and integration. In this paper, we consider the case study of a Demand Response (DR) Programme that is to be realized by the deployment of a network of smart meters. Through this case study, we propose a component-based modelling approach and demonstrate how it deals with the growing complex architecture.
