Special Issue in Energies: Photovoltaic Systems: Modelling, Control, Design and Applications
The main aim of this Special Issue is to provide a forum for researchers covering the whole range of fuzzy systems applications to renewable power generation and use in smart energy grids.
Renewable energy sources have significant impacts on power quality, electrical grid stability, and reliability: Indeed, major challenges are involved in the modeling, control, and general operation of these systems. Smart Grid technology employs information, communication, and automation technology to deploy a power grid integrated with smart power generation, transmission, distribution, and the integration of renewable energy sources. In particular, Smart Grids integrated with smart meters, electric vehicle charging stations, and home/building energy management system are the key enabling factor toward the Micro Grid, Smart Building, and Smart City concepts.
Moreover, since wind and solar PV power resources are intermittent, accurate predictions and modeling of wind speed and solar insolation are necessary. In addition, wind and solar photovoltaic generation require operating the systems near their maximum power output point. As a result, effective use of computational intelligence techniques, such as fuzzy systems for the controlling and modeling of renewable power generation in a Smart Grid, turns out to be critical for successful operations of the system.
This Special Issue would like to encourage original contributions regarding recent developments and ideas on applications of fuzzy logic in renewable energy systems and smart grids. Potential topics include but are not limited to: Fuzzy modeling of renewable power generation systems, fuzzy control of renewable power generation systems, prediction of renewable energy using fuzzy and neuro-fuzzy systems, fuzzy distribution systems automation, fuzzy control of distributed virtual power plants, fuzzy Logic application for Smart Grid and Smart Cities, fuzzy logic application for Micro Grid and energy management systems, fuzzy logic application for demand–response and Smart Buildings, fuzzy power quality, protection and reliability analysis of power system, novel applications in electric energy markets, and hybrid systems of computational intelligence techniques in Smart Grid and renewable power generation systems.Prof. Dr. Marco Mussetta
