Special Issue "Electric Power Systems Research"
A special issue of Energies (ISSN 1996-1073).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 January 2016)
A printed edition of this Special Issue is available here.
The Edison Electric Light Company, owned by Thomas Edison, developed the first steam-based electric power station on Pearl Street in New York City in 1882. This power station initially supplied electric power to around 3000 lamps for 59 customers. This may have been the first power system in the world. At present, people request utilities to deliver electric power in a stable, reliable, secure and sustainable manner from a generation system through transmission and distribution systems to end-users. Consequently, the need to develop advanced technologies and novel methods applied to the modern power system is essential. Recently, the concept of smart grids incorporating renewables, power electronics-based facility and information/communication technology receives more and more attention. Research on smart grids must be also addressed.
Electric Power Systems Research is a Special Issue in Energies for those who would like to publish original papers about the generation, transmission, distribution and utilization of electrical energy. This Special Issue aims at presenting important results of work in power systems. Works can be applied research, development of new procedures or components, original application of existing knowledge, or new design approaches.
Papers in the relevant area of Electric Power Systems Research, including, but not limited to, the following, are invited:
- power system stability
- power system reliability
- facts applied to power systems
- optimization methods applied to power system studies
- architectures and models for smart grid
- power market
- control, operation and planning of distributed generation resources
- smart home with energy management systems
- microgrid and active distribution network
- virtual power plant and demand response
