IEEE International Conference on Communications, Control, and Computing Technologies for Smart Grids
25–28 October 2022 // Singapore // Hybrid: In-Person and Virtual Conference

CFP: Control And Operations

This symposium will discuss new research in the theory and practice of control and operation systems, particularly for the smart grid and related cyber-physical systems. This will include new frameworks, methods and simulators for centralized and distributed monitoring, operation, control, optimization, and protection, as well as their applications to transmission and distribution systems.  

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following: 

  • Distributed control and/or decentralized monitoring and decision making: 
    • Dynamic state estimation 
    • Distributed control algorithms and their applications for voltage and frequency controls 
    • Resilient, robust and scalable control methods 
    • Deep reinforcement learning for power system control 
  • Renewable energy integration and grid services: 
    • Integration of renewable energy resources at both bulk transmission and distribution systems 
    • Integration and aggregation of DERs and virtual power plant (VPP) concepts 
    • Provisions of behind the meter DERs for grid reliability and resilience 
    • Mitigation of renewable source variability and provision of reliable services 
    • Advanced microgrid optimization and control 
  • Analytical computing tools for control and operation: 
    • Cyber-physical system modelling, operation, and co-simulation 
    • Probabilistic stability analysis Cybersecurity vulnerability assessment and defense 
    • Micro-Phasor measurement units applications 
  • Power electronics and devices for grid applications: 
    • Grid forming inverter applications 
    • Virtual inertia emulation techniques 
    • New stability assessment and control algorithms for power electronics-dominated systems 
    • DC distribution systems and DC micro-grid networks 
  • Protection and fault-management: 
    • Adaptative protection for low inertia systems 
    • Fault monitoring, location, and isolation 
    • Operating strategies during emergencies, islanding and black start
