Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

As our global complex energy systems are transformed away from fossil fuels to clean, sustainable sources, the change will require heightened levels of sophistication in terms of complex system control and optimization. Challenging invention and adaptation will be required, particularly in energy generation (electrical, hydrogen, etc.), transmission and distribution. Coupled to this are the development of tools and technology for the delivery of sustainable energy production, distribution and consumption in the context of societal, economic and environmental pressures and requirements. Traditional system and design modelling, optimization, control theory and applications are of limited effectiveness when applied to problems of this complexity. It is likely that Artificial Intelligence supported by big data analytics and machine learning will be the main tools to solve these problems.

This research collection focuses on the application of AI-based techniques across the spectrum of energy system applications from renewable, sustainable generation through distribution to consumption via complex systems and optimisation. Including smart grid, electrical drives, power electronics and electric vehicles. The goal of this collection is to cover recent advances in energy system planning and operation.

The collection Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Energy system planning, including smart grid;
  • Energy system optimisation;
  • Control, identification and optimisation of electrical drives applied in energy systems;
  • Electric vehicle energy systems integration;
  • Load forecasting and system adaptation;
  • Condition monitoring of energy systems (including electrical drives);
  • Renewable energy resource allocation;
  • System planning and scheduling;
  • Systems economics and societal impact.

In distributed power generation systems, grid-connected inverters are becoming an attractive means of delivering the energy generated from renewable sources into the grid. However, the performance of the current controller drastically decreases in the presence of model uncertainty, grid harmonics, filter parametric, and grid impedance variations, which can jeopardize the entire system’s stability. This paper presents a novel design of a super-twisting integral sliding mode control (ST-ISMC) strategy for the first time in the application of a three-phase voltage source grid-connected inverter. The designed controller has shown robustness and maintains a low total harmonic distortion (THD) in the presence of filter parameters drift, grid impedance variation, and grid harmonics distortion. The super-twisting action is added to remove the chattering problem associated with the conventional SMC strategy, and integral action is adopted to improve the grid’s current steady-state error. The modeling and simulation of a complete system are carried out using MATLAB/SIMULINK. Finally, a real-world hardware prototype system is fabricated to demonstrate the performance and effectiveness of the proposed controller. Full article
