Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Protection and control are important approaches to ensuring the safe operation and optimal scheduling of the power system. In recent years, the protection and control of power systems have faced increasing challenges. Now, more and more renewable energy resources are integrated into power systems, thus elevating the operational risks posed due to the uncertainty of renewable energy resources. Power systems have also become dominated by power electronics. The impacts of power electronic devices on power systems are more complex than those of traditional equipment. In addition to renewable energy resources, other distributed energy resources and more flexible resources, such as electric vehicles, have been introduced into power systems. The protection and control of modern power systems in required in order to implement these changes.

This Special Issue focuses on advanced developments in the protection and control of power systems. We encourage the contribution of original papers addressing power system analysis and control, power system planning, power system protection, and the impacts of large-scale electric vehicle integration and power electronic devices on power grids. We also welcome original research presenting new technologies such as artificial intelligence and the application of novel advanced communication technologies to the protection and control of power systems.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.
