Special Session on Power Control and Energy Management (SS-PCEM)

Satisfying the energy needs have never been more challenging due to the huge population and rapid pace of economic growth. With a view to keeping pace with it, the power industry is experiencing a major fundamental change in the field of management and control. With the increasing installation of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs); retention of Electric Vehicles (EVs) and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs); restricted transmission grid expansion together with increase of volatility due to more renewable and distributed generation, the power distribution network has become more complex than ever. At the same time, transmission owners, ISOs (International Standard Organization) and TSOs (Transmission System Operators) have a constant responsibility to balance the costs incurred by operational constraints against grid reliability and the risks of major blackouts. “Power Control and Energy Management (PCEM)” is a vision and a cornerstone in order to get solution to many critical problems of energy consumption, energy efficient system and power management reliability. In addition, low voltage profile in large power interconnections, followed by undammed power oscillations is a major issue of grave concern in providing uninterrupted electricity to the customer with utmost reliability. Moreover, the oscillations, if left unmitigated, can lead to unwanted tripping of transmission lines and generators that could cascade into devastating blackouts. A Proper blend of technical and economic fundamentals of both power transmission and distribution through stronger coordination and synchronization of operation, control and maintenance timeframes is now an emerging need.


Our session topic has been under the spotlight of discussion in recent times. Nonetheless, being benefitted from the upgrades on the IT-based devices such as Smart Meters, smart appliances and Phase Measurement Units (PMUs) in home, building, electricity distribution network and transmission network; the entire energy system are facing the transition from the passive clients to the active participants. Consequently, it creates opportunities in taking more responsibilities in the entire power grid. In this regard, integration of modern ICT and control techniques, is expected to promote the implementation of ICT devices; thus encouraging the customer interaction with the grid operators. All of these play vital roles actively for maintaining the power network. The objective of Special Session on Power Control and Energy Management (PCEM) is to provide a platform for researchers, engineers, scientists and other professionals to identify the key problems in the above mentioned fields and to share the proposed solutions among the respective field expertise.
