Cyber-Physical Power Electronics in Renewable Energy Systems

This issue is now closed for submissions.

Description

Cyber-Physical systems (CPS) are engineering systems based on the seamless integration of sensing, computation, control, and networking with physical components through the Internet of Things (IoT). Advances in CPS are expected to enable capability, adaptability, scalability, resilience, safety, security, and usability far beyond what is available in contemporary electric power and energy systems (PES). This Special Issue will be bridging the gap between Cyber-Physical Power Electronics (CP-PE) and Renewable Energy Systems (RES).

The challenges in the area CP-PE are its complexity and lack of research. A lot of information about cyber-physical power systems is available, however researchers are waiting for the same on power electronics and its application to renewable energy systems. This Special Issue will investigate the applied implementation of cyber-physical power electronics for renewable energy systems, with an emphasis on saving, protecting, and enhancing the energy generated by renewable energy systems through cyber-physical power electronics.

The aim of this Special Issue is to publish articles that provide novel insights, theories, and solutions for renewable energy systems viewed as cyber–physical power electronics systems. The subject areas may include analysis of complex energy systems, where advanced mathematics and measurement techniques are used to tackle the complexity of future smart grids stemming from renewable generation; management of flexibility and storage; vehicle-to-grid challenges; planning and scheduling under increased uncertainty; optimizing the reliability and economic performance of smart grids; and power quality, storage, voltage and frequency control. Original research and review articles are welcome.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Introduction to Cyber-Physical Power Electronics for Renewable Energy Systems
  • Challenges in integrating Cyber-Physical Power Electronics with Renewable Energy Systems
  • Demystifying the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Cyber-Physical Power Electronics for Renewable Energy Systems
  • New IoT-enabled power electronic controller for Renewable Energy Systems
  • Cloud-based monitoring, control, and management of Renewable Energy Systems
  • Real-Time Integration of Cyber-Physical Power Electronics with Renewable Energy Systems
  • Cyber-physical power electronic conversion and control system for universal and flexible power management
  • Virtual microgrid peer-to-peer energy management using multi-agent and co-simulation technologies in CP-PE controllers
  • Hardware in loop system modeling and control of cyber-physical power electronic controller using intelligent control or data-driven control
  • Digital Twins Technologies in Cyber-Physical Power Electronics for Renewable Energy Systems
  • Secure and resilient cyber-physical and communication architectures for CP-PE
  • Cyber-Physical Security and privacy for Renewable Energy Systems
