Call for Book Chapter on:

Robust optimal planning and operation of electrical energy systems

Dear Colleagues,

We are honored to invite you to submit your book chapter proposals for the following edited book.

Book Title

Robust optimal planning and operation of electrical energy systems

Synopsis

Considering the existence of uncertain factors in electric energy systems, such as load variation, power market price, and power generation of renewable energy sources, the results provided by the conventional deterministic optimal planning and operation of electric energy systems are not confirmed to be optimal framework for future power system conditions. Accordingly, studying uncertainties associated with parameters of electric energy systems is of importance for obtaining more effective and promising solutions of planning and operation of electric energy systems. Uncertainty of parameters can be studied in two main classifications including a: uncertainty related to difference of the real value of a parameter and the value estimated in observations or calculations, and b: uncertainty of load demand, price of different types of energy, generation availability, and weather interruptions. In traditional approaches, probabilistic methods, interval based analysis, hybrid probabilistic and possibilistic methods are implemented for handling uncertainties associated with power system parameters. Recently, robust modeling methods such as robust optimization (RO) and information gap decision theory (IGDT) methods are introduced as effective tools for the solution of power system problems. The robust modeling methods such as robust optimization (RO) and information gap decision theory (IGDT) methods lead to more effective solutions and are promising for the robust planning and operation of electric energy systems. This book aims to study robust planning and operation of electric energy systems by employing robust modeling methods.

Synopsis

Providing a reliable and secure power and energy system is one of the main challenges of the new era. The efficient operation of power systems contributions to decrease in fuel consumption and gas emission, conservation of natural resources, ensuring sustainability with better planning, and providing cleaner energy. The evolving modern optimization methods lead to more effective solutions and are promising for the continuously changing power system management, planning, and operation. Due to the nonlinear structure and multi-objective functions of recent problems, the traditional methods may not be proper approaches for solving those large-scale power system operation dilemmas. The proposed book aims to discuss the recent developments and the contribution of optimization methods and algorithms to the power system management, planning, and operation. Since coding is one of the important stages of research studies, the availability of those codes can help the researchers to continue expanding the knowledge borders. In addition, one of the most favored tools of researchers and electric system developers for power system optimization is MATLAB software. The proposed book chapters shall include the MATLAB code for their proposed methods as well.
