Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

New technological developments in recent years have led to the appearance of new or improved equipment for uses that did not exist, including new electrical systems for electric cars, new types of intelligent electrical networks for the transmission of electrical energy in parallel with other types of electrical signals, and new types of electrical generators for renewable energy sources. New ways of converting some types of energy into electricity have been developed or will be developed, which implies new technologies for obtaining a greater amount of electricity are on their way.

The diversification of sources for obtaining electricity is a major concern in recent decades, regarding the improvement of photovoltaic panels, the use and expansion of applications that use hydrogen, etc. They require the development or improvement of new electrical technologies, and they have a major impact on everyday life.

The expansion of the frequency range for mobile telephony imposes new trends regarding the adjacent electrical equipment that will be used for the transmission and reception of electrical signals, in parallel with measures to protect the human personnel involved in the electromagnetic energy transmission chain (workers in specialized companies, mobile phone users, etc.).

All this will have a major impact on the relevant industry and on the users of new electrical equipment.

This Special Issue aims to present, the latest issues regarding the electric power technologies and the meaning of further developments in the field.

Issues to be considered here include, among others:

  • Modern trends in railway electric traction systems;
  • Modern electrical technologies in aeronautical systems;
  • Modern electrical technologies in space systems;
  • Trends in advanced modeling and simulation of electrical equipment;
  • Modern electrical technologies in urban transport systems;
  • Advanced systems for complex monitoring of energy power groups;
  • Modern technologies regarding the integration of renewable energies in smart electrical networks;
  • Modern numerical processing in mono- and three-phase systems;
  • Advanced diagnosis in modern electrical systems;
  • Increased energy efficiency at sources, at loads and on electricity transmission lines;
  • Modern technologies regarding the mobile phones.

For power plant networks in developing countries like Iraq, balancing electricity demand and generation continues to be a major challenge. Energy management (EM) in either demand-side (DS) or generation-side (GS) strategies, which is frequently utilized in Iraq due to a lack of adequate power generation, has a small impact on the power balancing mechanism. Most previous studies in similar countries discussed only the application of DS strategies. The purpose of this paper is to contrast and review various energy management methodologies being used in developing nations facing power outages, to be able to recommend suitable ones according to the country’s situation. To assess potential EM-based solutions to improve the total energy efficiency of the Iraqi electrical community, a thorough and methodical analysis was carried out. The main objective of this review paper is to discuss the causes of power outages and the energy management strategies addressed here as methods to mitigate or avoid power outages. Unlike existing reviews that concentrated on demand-side energy management, this study specifically focuses on power outage causes in developing countries like Iraq rather than all management strategies. It also introduces the consequences of power outages including analysis of distribution power losses, financial loss from power blackouts, and power blackouts in firms in a typical month. Therefore, it presents readers with state-of-the-art strategies and recommends a generation-based EM strategy to mitigate such issues. Full article
