Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The transition from traditional fossil fuels to renewable energy systems is a significant challenge to which modern economies must adapt. The acceptance of renewable energy system economics and policies is based on the urgent need to address environmental challenges and ensure energy security; the economic benefits of creating new jobs and cost savings; technological advancements; and increasing public and policy support. Although obstacles exist, such as intermittency, initial costs, and the transition for fossil fuel-dependent sectors, these are being addressed through technological innovations, strategic policies, and supportive economic measures. The shift towards renewable energy is not only necessary for environmental sustainability but also presents significant opportunities for economic growth and energy security. As well as responding to environmental imperatives, it represents an opportunity for economic growth, innovation, and global leadership in the new energy landscape.

Considering a wide range of theories, synergies and trends, this Special Issue aims to establish a dedicated framework for future acceptance of renewable energy system economics and policies. It will focus on the main challenges and opportunities for future acceptance of renewable energy systems economics and policy. New theories, synergies, constraints and trends in the field will be explored.  Well-balanced theoretical and practical manuscripts on the acceptance of renewable energy system economics and policies are welcome.

The interline power flow controller (IPFC) is one of the most versatile integrated flexible alternating current transmission systems (FACTS) controllers and can realize power flow control for multiple transmission lines in modern power systems. However, control characteristics are ignored in conventional IPFC models, in which unreasonable assumptions about injected voltages may lead to security problems in realistic operation. Besides, preventive security constraints considering IPFC control modes are not included in optimal power flow (OPF) control of the system with IPFC, squandering IPFC control potential. To solve these problems, a preventive-security-constrained optimal power flow (PSCOPF) model considering IPFC control modes is proposed in this paper. IPFC control characteristics under different control modes are analyzed and employed as constraints of the optimization model. The iterative updates of converter output voltages for different control modes are derived respectively for power flow calculation, and the power and voltages required in the objective function and constraints of the proposed model can then be obtained. Through optimal selection of IPFC control modes and control parameters, the proposed model can better reconcile the economical and secure operation of the system. Numerical results demonstrate the efficient performance and superiority of the PSCOPF model considering IPFC control modes. Full article
