Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Currently, emerging smart grids and the increasing penetration level of renewable resources in power systems is leading to tremendous changes in the operation and planning of networks. Accordingly, new optimization methods are required for the management and impact assessments of these resources. This Special Issue encompasses novel optimization methods for the management of renewable energy resources. The focus will include new methods and techniques for the optimal modelling of resources and markets, modelling of energy communities, optimization methods to improve the performance of local electricity markets, models of uncertain parameters and risk management approaches, assessing the impacts of uncertain resources on energy and ancillary service markets, optimization methods for trading imbalance, demand side management, economic aspects of climate change, etc.

Abstract
The risk of unintentional islanding creation in distributed energy systems poses a significant security concern since unintentional islanding formation could lead to a supply of energy outside of the optimal quality limits. This constitutes a risk for users, maintenance personnel, infrastructure, and devices. [...] Read more.
The risk of unintentional islanding creation in distributed energy systems poses a significant security concern since unintentional islanding formation could lead to a supply of energy outside of the optimal quality limits. This constitutes a risk for users, maintenance personnel, infrastructure, and devices. To mitigate this problem, anti-islanding protections are widely used to prevent the distributed generator from feeding a portion of the radial distribution grid when a protection device trips upstream. However, the effectiveness of these protections heavily relies on properly tuning protection setting thresholds (such as time delay and pickup). This work proposes a novel approach that utilizes entropy as a model and metric of the uncertainty associated with a particular protection setting. By minimizing entropy, the proposed method aims to improve stability and sensitivity, consequently improving the overall performance of anti-islanding protection. Simulation results demonstrate that the Bayesian entropy methodology (BEM) approach achieves enhanced stability in various scenarios, including frequency transients, and demonstrates a notable reduction in the size of the dataset and computational burden, ranging between 91% and 98%, when compared to related works, with an improvement of the uncertainty achieved. The findings of this study contribute to the development of more robust and reliable anti-islanding protections. Full article
