Special Session 2: Sustainable Power Grids through System-level Design and Optimization


Dr. Samson Yu, Deakin University, Australia

Prof. Shing Chiang Tan, Multimedia University, Malaysia


About the session

To achieve sustainability of power supply, modern power grids are transforming into a cleaner and smarter state, with an increasing uptake of renewable energy and more advanced digital and intelligent monitoring and control technologies. In particular, at a system level, power systems' optimal operation can be modelled as an optimization problem to minimize the cost, power loss, or emission of the power system. At the same time, a power system comprised of multiple components – generators, loads, transmission lines, converter-interfaced renewable energy sources, etc., can be represented by a series of inter-related dynamic systems. Understanding how modern power systems work through system-level modeling and achieve optimal operations of power systems with minimum costs and carbon emissions, while obeying power system constraints, is the key to constructing the future sustainable power grid. In view of this, this special session aims to attract original and high-quality research in sustainability-driven system-level research of power grid.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    ◆ Modeling and analysis of modern power grids with converter-interfaced renewable energy sources with dynamic system modeling and control theories
    ◆ System-level modeling and optimization of power systems
    ◆ Power electronics technologies, including modeling and control design of grid-connected power converters
    ◆ Forecasting and interval optimization for renewable energy, e.g., wind power and solar power
    ◆ Control methods or systems with machine intelligence that can be applied to power systems and/or power converters
