Special Issue Introduction

The energy sector is the largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. To decarbonize the economy and meet emission reduction targets, power grids around the globe are in transition from an old paradigm to a new one with an increased share of generation from renewable sources. Generation from renewable (e.g., solar and wind) often involves large uncertainty due to environmental factors. If not properly managed, an increased share of renewables may put the reliability and security of power systems at risk. Increased uptake of new technologies, such as electric vehicles, residential rooftop photovoltaics and batteries, will introduce further complexity to the operation and planning of distribution grids. Advanced control and planning tools are required to keep the reliability, security and affordability of future smart grids under control. This special issue aims at collecting the latest developments in the field. Topics of interest include but are not limited to
● Applications of machine learning and data analytics techniques in smart grid analysis and control
● Voltage and frequency regulations of renewable-rich smart grids
● Data analytics and its applications in Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), e.g., identification of households with electric vehicles, charge profiling, customer analytics, anomaly detection and asset maintenance planning
● Optimal operation of future smart grids
● Data-driven control, automation and protection of smart grids
● Increasing hosting capacity of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs), including renewables, battery storage systems and electric vehicles
● Optimization of tariffs in future smart grids
● Community batteries and their role in future distribution grids
● Virtual power plants
● Demand management in residential, commercial and industrial sectors
● Smart grid cyber security
● Smart grids and electrification of transportation systems
● Smart grids and home automation
● Resilience and reliability of future power grids
