Special Issue on “Computational Intelligence and Soft Computing in Active Electrical Distribution Networks”
The future power system, known as smart grid, will host a variety of new technologies, such as distributed generation resources, energy storage devices, electric vehicle (EV), and demand response resource at low-voltage distribution system. A sophisticated feet of sensors, measurement tools, communication channels, and real-time data streaming apparatuses are expected to be deployed in future distribution networks. e industry and research community have been working on addressing the challenges presented by adopting such complex systems in recent years. Such challenges include real-time optimal operation of distributed generation, energy storage devices, and demand response resources at distribution level in uncertain operation conditions, community distribution network, local energy trading, and supporting upstream grid. To take advantage of the new possibilities and overcome the potential issues in the new era, development of modern operational tools and algorithms is required for active distribution networks.
In this special issue, we are seeking the cutting-edge research related to the advancement active distribution networks by employing modern computational intelligence and soft computing techniques. We invite researchers from academia as well as industry to submit their high-quality works and research findings in this relatively new area with focus on application of soft computing methods, artificial intelligence techniques, machine learning, and optimization algorithms.
