Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Automation technology is a key element of energy systems. Control, optimization, fault diagnostics, predictive maintenance, and safety are all key functionalities of energy systems that rely on automation technology. The transition to renewable generation and smart power grids is introducing decentralized operation concepts, intelligent distributed energy resources, and isolated grids. All of these trends involve fundamental redesign of automation systems. Alongside the trend toward electrification, district heating, geothermal energy, and P2X contribute to the emerging sustainable energy system, but new automation solutions are required to manage and coordinate these systems. In addition to the rapid penetration of renewable generation, significant investments to nuclear power are occurring in several regions of the world, so research in nuclear automation is required to ensure that design, commissioning, operation, and waste disposal activities can be executed safely and cleanly.

This Special Issue welcomes any contributions related to automation technology in the energy sector. Survey and review papers are also welcome. This special issue is organized in collaboration with the Automation Days 2023 conference: https://www.automaatioseura.fi/automationdays2023/
