Scope and Motivation

In favor of various environmental and economic factors, a smart grid accommodates demand response, large-scale integration of renewable energy sources, distributed generation, PHEVs and storage. The immediate consequences are two-fold: increased uncertainty and increased complexity. How should the current system and market operation paradigms change to facilitate incorporation of all these elements with heterogeneous characteristics? How can we take advantage of communication and information technology to develop sophisticated control and optimization techniques with reasonable computational complexity to mitigate the effects of the induced uncertainties?

Topics of Particular Interest

This symposium invites prospective authors to submit papers that address the aforementioned issues in their generality or in one of the specific contexts listed below:

  1. Networked Control Systems In Smart Grids: Theory, Application, and Practical Issues
  2. Distributed control under communication constraints
  3. Computational Complexity and Uncertainty Trade-offs in Smarts Grids
  4. Distributed Control and Optimization for control and coordination within and across microgrids.
  5. Value of Information: What information should be collected, to whom it should be provided, how timely, and at what rate?
  6. Stochastic Control and Optimization for a Probabilistic Framework for Transmission and Distribution System Operation
  7. Low Complexity Control and Communication for Energy Efficient Building Operation and Management.
  8. Market mechanisms to facilitate integration of the renewables, defining reliability, and pricing reliability
  9. Distributed sensing, communication, and control for prediction and prevention of cascade failures
  10. Statistical techniques in analysis of cascaded failures in large interconnected systems.
  11. Migration Path to a Smart Grid
    1. Technical Path
    2. Commercial Path
    3. Socioeconomic Objectives and Trade-offs
    4. Planned versus Evolutionary Design
  12. Cognition
  13. Self-Organization
  14. Risk Assessment and Management
