2nd Advanced Control in Smart Grid Workshop – ACSG 2019

The workshop will be a forum to discuss issues and effective strategies for modernization of control approaches in power system industry landscape due to the advent of information and communication technology and the emergence of renewable and distributed energy resources introduced in the smart grid development. It will include an emphasis on advanced distribution management systems, the integration of distributed energy resources and the required approaches for integration of storage units, electrical vehicles or smart buildings.

The smart grid can be conceptualized as an extensive cyber-physical system that supports and facilitates significantly enhanced controllability and responsiveness of highly distributed resources within electric power systems.

Objective:

The workshop aims to provide a forum discussing the state-of-art and recent advances on this topic, addressing both theoretical and applied implemented approaches, with representatives from academia and industry along with establishing a strong context of international research projects and future collaborations.

The workshop could be featured on 2-3 sessions, including technical papers and promote discussions on smart applications and systems integration. The sessions could follow the next aspects: Current state of ACSG; Future state of ACSG; Benefits of implementation and barriers to deployment. An invited paper per session will be scheduled based on senior researchers’ involvement. For each session 5 to 7 paper will be presented.

Workshop topics:

The workshop seeks original contributions in all relevant areas, including but not limited to the following:

    • Renewable energy sources control with applications in smart grid integration, fault detection and protection systems
    • Control of distributed renewable energy storage

  • Preliminary workshop agenda:

The workshop aims to provide a forum discussing the state-of-art and recent advances on this topic, addressing both theoretical and applied implemented approaches, with representatives from academia and industry along with establishing a strong context of international research projects and future collaborations.

The workshop could be featured on 2-3 sessions, including technical papers and promote discussions on smart applications and systems integration. The sessions could follow the next aspects: Current state of ACSG; Future state of ACSG; Benefits of implementation and barriers to deployment. An invited paper per session will be scheduled based on senior researchers’ involvement. For each session 5 to 7 papers will be presented.

  • Description of the paper review process and acceptance standards:

The paper review process is the most important part for maintaining the quality of the presented and publishing papers.

The review process must consider professional ethics that requires confidentiality, submission of original and unpublished work, etc. Conferences will use a “blind review” process where the authors are not revealed to the reviewers in order to allow concentration on content.

The paper must be in the same format as the conference proceedings and may not be more than 6 pages in length.

The paper review process will follow: select papers according to the workshop topics or redirect to the most appropriate session/workshop; assignment of most logical reviewers (minimum 3 reviewers (specialists in the field) for analysis); simultaneous mailing to all identified reviewers; review of the papers; coordination of actual reviews and receipt of comments; constantly updated reports to all reviewers on the status of papers in the review process including statements of acceptance or rejection by the reviewers; closing evaluation of all submitted papers by chairs; select as many high-quality papers as possible in the workshop; notification to all authors of acceptance or rejection of papers.

The status reports to reviewers should identify the reviewers of each paper, its present status (accepted/rejected), and any comments regarding the paper’s quality or referral to another reviewer.
Expected duration of the workshop (half or full day): half day
