Computational Intelligence Techniques for Realization of Power Electronic Converters for Next Generation Grids 2022


Power systems have experienced a significant transformation all over the world. Productivity has been improved with the help of modern power electronics. Modeling and simulation of power electronics is the most important element for modern smart grid and renewable energy systems. The penetration of power electronic devices interfaced with the smart grid and renewable energy systems strongly characterize the conventional power systems.

Power electronics use high power, high efficiency semiconductor devices to convert DC to AC, AC to DC, and to control the electrical power. The converters are widely employed in commercial, manufacturing, transportation, and other utility systems. Modern industrial automation achieved through the modern power electronic devices include renewable energy systems like solar photovoltaics (PV), wind power systems, electric and hybrid vehicles, and energy storage systems. The control of power electronic converters with the use of artificial and deep learning techniques can achieve optimum design, energy management control, and reliability in the smart grid.

This Special Issue aims to collate papers that describe computational intelligence techniques for model-free control and fault diagnosis in the following application domains: electric power systems, power generators and power electronics, photovoltaic units, fuel cells units, synchronous generators, permanent magnet synchronous generators, doubly-fed induction generators, doubly- fed reluctance generators, gas-turbine electric power units, hybrid-excited synchronous generators, steam-turbine electric power units, wind-turbine electric power units, hydropower generators, multi-phase generators, distributed electric power transmission and distribution systems, power electronics such as DC-DC converters, DC-AC inverters, AC-DC converters, DC-AC inverters and active power filters, power transformers, batteries and capacitors, VSC-HVDC transmission systems, and components of the smart grid.
