Innovative Techniques for Smart Grids
We would like to invite submissions to this Topic on the subject of Smart Grids and Microgrids entitled “Innovative Techniques for Smart Grids”.
Due to environment concerns, energy security risks, and fossil fuel problems, many countries around the world have decided to increase the penetration level of renewable energy resources (RERs) in their energy networks. In addition to this, many countries are moving toward implementation of the smart grid concept including microgrid and deregulation in their power systems to achieve reliable and secure operation of their power systems with high penetration level of renewable energy resources. This topic focuses on providing the latest innovative techniques for enhancing the planning, operation, control and stability in modern and future smart grids and microgrids.
The topics include but are not limited to:
• Smart grids and microgrids;
• The design, modeling, and management of smart grids and microgrids;
• Smart grid and microgrid reliability, sustainability, flexibility, and resiliency;
• Smart grid and microgrid dynamics, stability, protection and security;
• Methodologies and applications of modern methods for the operation and control of smart grids;
• Intelligent systems, solving methods, optimization, and advanced heuristics;
• The modeling, planning, and operating of renewable energy resources;
• Business models for different electricity market players;
• Demand side management and demand response;
• The sizing, placement, and operation of energy storage systems and electric vehicles;
• Smart homes and building energy management;
• Electricity market, electrical power, and energy systems;
• The modeling, forecasting, and management of uncertainty in smart grids;
• Microgrids and islanded networks;
• Smart cities, smart energy, and IoT;
• Modern power systems and renewable energy resources.
