2. Power Quality in Smart Grid

Description
A smart grid is expected to be an innovation of modern power system. It provides monitoring, protecting and automatically optimizing of power system operations. Renewable energy sources and energy storage systems may also be included into the smart gird. Poor power quality in the smart grid can be occurred due to variation of renewable energy sources and control of power electronic devices.
Prospective authors are invited to submit original contributions for review and publication in this special session on Power Quality in Smart Grids. Topics of interest for this special session include, but are not limited to:
- Power quality problems in smart grids
- Power quality measurement and state estimation in smart grids
- Modelling and control to improve power quality
- Load frequency control
- Control of power electronic devices for power quality improvement
- Harmonics propagation
- Information and communication technology requirements for power quality assessment and enhancement in smart grids

5. Advanced Communication Technology for Smart Grid

Description
The main objective of this special session is to encourage the researchers to submit works that are interdependent to communication and information technologies for the performance improvement of the power grid. Therefore, their aim should be concentrated on the application and implementation of advanced communication and information technologies for enhancing the Smart Grid (SG) framework. These technologies could reform both the collection SG electric information and distribution SG information systems, moreover, and give intelligence in the SG electric system. In this decade, the advanced communication and information technologies could usually be based on stochastic models and criteria for accuracy, safety and stability in the SG network. In addition, advanced communication protocols could manage optimistically the transmission capacity of the communication network on SG framework and make efficient use of distributed energy resources in the SG framework in order to effectively operate against failures. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Communications architectures, protocols, services, and systems
- Home-area, neighborhood-area, field-area, and wide-area networks
- Sensor, actuator, and machine-to-machine networks for smart grid
- Analysis, model, optimization, and control
- Cyber security and privacy management
- Demand response management
- Quality-of-service provisioning
- Standardization, interoperability, and regulation
- Smart Meter and anti-tampering technologies
- Optimization in distribution power grid
