1st ACSG 2017

ACSG 2017 – International Workshop on Advance Control in Smart Grid

Held in conjunction with CSCS21 2017: The 21th International Conference on Control Systems and Computer Science, 29-31 MAY 2017, Faculty of Automatic Control and Computers, University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest, Romania

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.


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
    • Demand side management and demand response
    • Smart home/building energy management
    • Electric vehicle management
    • Energy harvesting control
    • Smart grid communication and networking
    • Smart metering
    • Internet of Things and its applications in smart grid
    • Big data for smart grid
    • Cloud computing for smart grid
    • Smart grid optimization
    • Cyber-power system modeling
    • Smart grid cyber security
    • Microgrid control

    The ACSG 2017 is an interdisciplinary workshop that aims to bring together researchers from academia, students and industry professionals from Energy, Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics and Energy Policy/Regulation fields. Professionals will interact and exchange novel ideas about all aspects adopted in the field of Smart grids considering super to micro grid scales, Power and Advanced Control Engineering.


The ACSG 2017 workshop is held as a satellite of the 21th International Conference on Control Systems and Computer Science (CSCS 21) organized by the Faculty of Control and Computers, University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest, Romania.For details please check out the CSCS21 Web site for up-to-date info at http://cscs21.hpc.pub.ro/.
