Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

NEFES is an international conference held annually since 2016. In the past five years, it has been supported by many institutions and publishers such as Macau University of Science and Technology, Yunnan Normal University, International Association for Hydrogen Energy, IOP Publishing, etc. and attracted more than 500 participants from all over the world. The 6th International Conference on New Energy and Future Energy Systems (NEFES 2021) will be held on 1–4 November 2021 in Xi’an, a popular travel destination with abundant historical and cultural heritage. The aim is to provide an opportunity and a unique platform for scientists, researchers, and scholars to share their latest achievements and discuss possible challenges in terms of new energy and future energy systems. The conference targets a thrilling and wide range of topics related to new energy, new energy material, intergrid, etc. Some of the topics included are:

  • Solar energy
  • Fusion energy
  • Geothermal energy
  • Advanced energy technologies
  • New energy devices
  • Smart grid
  • Smart grid load and energy management
  • Smart grid architectures and models
  • Networking and computing issues in smart grid
  • Energy conversion technologies
  • Thermal energy storage
  • Energy harvesting
  • Electric vehicle monitoring and control
  • Material for energy saving and sustainability
  • Ni/MH battery materials
  • Fuel cell materials
  • Solar cell materials
  • Thermoelectrics, magnetocalorics, piezoelectronics

It is hoped that the selected papers will provide readers with interesting examples of current research on the most outstanding theoretical frameworks in energies. This opportunity is also advertised on the conference web sites: www.intergridconf.org/.

With the increasing penetration of renewable energy generation, one of the major challenges is the problem of how to express the stochastic process of wind power and photovoltaic output as the exact probability density and distribution, in order to improve the security and accuracy of unit commitment results, a distributed robust security-constrained optimization model based on moment uncertainty is proposed, in which the uncertainty of wind and photovoltaic power is captured by two uncertain sets of first- and second-order moments, respectively. The two sets contain the probability distribution of the forecast error of the wind and photovoltaic power, and in the model, the energy storage is considered. In order to solve the model effectively, firstly, based on the traditional chance-constrained second-order cone transformation, according to the first- and second-order moments polyhedron expression of the distribution set, a cutting plane method is proposed to solve the distributed robust chance constraints. Secondly, the modified IEEE-RTS 24 bus system is selected to establish a simulation example, an improved generalized Benders decomposition algorithm is developed to solve the model to optimality. The results show that the unit commitment results with different emphasis on economy and security can be obtained by setting different conservative coefficients and confidence levels and, then, provide a reasonable decision-making basis for dispatching operation.
