The smart grid: consumer installation challenges, load automation, and control and commercial validation in buildings

Published 31 October, 2022


The classical electrical grid is being replaced by the smart grid, which includes a variety of operation and energy measures. However, research is still required to improve the smart grid’s efficiency, reliability and economics, along with the sustainability of the generation, transmission and distribution of electrical power applied in buildings. Recent research works focus on the challenges to consumer installation, management of energy demand and distribution, load automation and control and commercial validation.

This special issue will focus on requirements, challenges and recent technologies related to the smart grid.

Topics covered:

  • Technical issues encountered during the integration ofsmart renewable energy systems with public grids
  • Advancementsin energy transmission and distribution techniques to enable lower transmission losses and better energy system integration
  • Real case studies on energy management of loads and sources

Important deadlines:

  • Submission deadline: 25 March2023
  • Publication date: 30 June 2023
