Special Issue "Smart Home and Energy Management Systems"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2018)
Prof. Dr. João P. S. Catalão
We are inviting submissions to the Special Issue on Smart Home and Energy Management Systems.
Energy efficiency is one of the central issues in the development of smart homes. Intelligent energy management systems, encompassing advanced information and communication technologies, automation and control, will enable energy savings without decreasing comfort levels. Real-time and stochastic optimization methods; advanced heuristics, distributed and predictive control; Internet of Energy and other smart solutions will unlock the full potential of smart homes. Techniques to forecast energy consumption; microgeneration and self-consumption management solutions; small-scale energy storage deployment; thermal comfort conditions and environmental quality research; demand-side applications and charging plug-in electric vehicles at home, are attracting more and more interest from the research community.
In this Special Issue, we invite submissions exploring cutting-edge research and recent advances in the fields of Smart Home and Energy Management Systems. Both theoretical and experimental studies are welcome, as well as comprehensive review and survey papers.
