Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 6th International Conference on Smart Energy Grid Engineering (SEGE) (http://www.sege-conference.com/index.html) has took place at UOIT, Ontario, Canada, 12–15 August, 2018.

The SEGE conference aims at providing an opportunity to discuss various engineering challenges of smart energy grid design and operation by focusing on advanced methods and practices for designing different components and their integration within the grid. It also provides a forum for researchers from academia and professionals from industry, as well as government regulators, to tackle these challenges, and discuss and exchange knowledge and best practices about design and implementation of smart energy grids.

Authors of papers related to energy presented at the conferences are invited to submit extended versions of their work to the Special Issue for publication.

You may choose our Joint Special Issue in Sensors.

Prof. Dr. Hossam A. Gabbar (Gaber)

In this paper, a class of mixed H 2 / H controller is designed for an energy router (ER) within the scenario of an energy Internet (EI). The considered ER is assumed to have access with photovoltaic panels, wind turbine generators, micro-turbines, fuel cells, diesel engine generators, battery energy storage devices, flywheel energy storage devices, loads, and other ERs. Two types of control targets are considered. First, due to the access of large-scale renewable energy sources, the DC bus voltage deviation within the ER system shall be regulated. Second, an optimal energy management strategy shall be achieved, such that the autonomous power supply-demand balance within each ER is achieved with priority and the rational utilization of controllable power generation devices and energy storage devices are realized. When these objectives are considered simultaneously, the control issues with respect to ER is formulated as a mixed robust H 2 / H control problem with analytical solutions provided. Several numerical examples are given, and the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed method are demonstrated. Full article

In the smart grid, residential consumption scheduling in demand-side management (DSM) is one of the key technologies to facilitate utility companies and users in order to achieve systems optimality such as minimizing energy cost and demand peak. The success of DSM implementation depends on the level of user participation. While most of the prior works on DSM have reported good optimal results, they show a lack of focus towards user-centric issues such as user preferences, consumption deviation, and system fairness. Failure to account for such issues may lead to lower user participation in DSM programs. To address this problem, we propose user-centric consumption scheduling and fair billing mechanism for DSM program which consider economic as well as comfort aspects. First, a user’s discomfort cost is integrated into price incentives for determining consumption schedules. Second, consumption rescheduling mechanism is designed to allow users to change their preferences if necessary, and request new schedules. Finally, to improve the level of system fairness and avoid strategic players who try to manipulate the consumption profile for their benefit, a fair billing mechanism is proposed at the end of the scheduling period which takes into account both rescheduling users and user’s consumption deviation level. Simulation results show the effectiveness of the proposed method in terms of energy cost saving and improving fairness in the user’s billing. Full article

Voltage and frequency stability are highly important for reliable performance of smart grids. In grid-connected mode, the utility controls these parameters, but when islanding occurs these parameters exceed their limits, which may result in irreparable damage to the system. This paper presents a time-domain approach which uses basic mathematical morphology (MM) operators, dilation and erosion filters, for microgrid islanding detection. The proposed method applies a dilation-erosion differential filter (DED) of the RMS signal (DEDFOR) at the point of common coupling (PCC) in a micro-grid connected to distributed generations (DGs). To evaluate the performance of the proposed approach, it is tested and compared with existing techniques in the literature under various conditions such as capacitor bank switching and motor starting. The results verify the accuracy and efficiency of the proposed technique for islanding detection under different operating conditions and various power mismatches. Full article
