Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Energy systems are designed in diverse ways depending on the field of application. Further requirements, like environment impact or energy awareness, are also considered, which led to a transformation of the design into more complex systems such as smart grids, renewable energy systems or building management systems. This transformation involves changes in technologies providing more resources for energy management and also challenges for many research activities.

Several components are included in these systems to facilitate the collection of energy data, and the current computation capabilities make machine learning applications able to handle and extract information from data successfully possible. Many machine learning methods exist, ranging from neural networks, deep learning, and ensemble models to hybrid solutions that attend to the problems present in these complex systems. The application in energy systems can provide additional features to make them more effective; for instance, a better knowledge of the system, support decisions for an effective energy management or early fault detection.

Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Energy estimation;
  • Prediction models;
  • Energy system modeling;
  • Load forecasting;
  • Condition monitoring;
  • Energy disaggregation;
  • Fault detection;
  • Optimization;
  • Control.

In the realm of power systems, short-term electric load forecasting is pivotal for ensuring supply–demand balance, optimizing generation planning, reducing operational costs, and maintaining grid stability. Short-term load curves are characteristically coarse, revealing high-frequency data upon decomposition that exhibit pronounced non-linearity and significant noise, complicating efforts to enhance forecasting precision. To address these challenges, this study introduces an innovative model. This model employs complete ensemble empirical mode decomposition with adaptive noise (CEEMDAN) to bifurcate the original load data into low- and high-frequency components. For the smoother low-frequency data, a temporal convolutional network (TCN) is utilized, whereas the high-frequency components, which encapsulate detailed load history information yet suffer from a lower fitting accuracy, are processed using an enhanced soft thresholding TCN (SF-TCN) optimized with the slime mould algorithm (SMA). Experimental tests of this methodology on load forecasts for the forthcoming 24 h across all seasons have demonstrated its superior forecasting accuracy compared to that of non-decomposed models, such as support vector regression (SVR), recurrent neural network (RNN), gated recurrent unit (GRU), long short-term memory (LSTM), convolutional neural network-LSTM (CNN-LSTM), TCN, Informer, and decomposed models, including CEEMDAN-TCN and CEEMDAN-TCN-SMA.
