CFP - Symposium on Control and Operation

IEEE SmartGridComm 2024
CFP - Symposium on Control and Operation


This symposium welcomes new and innovative research- both theory and implementation oriented- to enhance control and operation systems for the smart grid and related cyber-physical systems. Of particular interest are new frameworks, methods, and simulators for centralized and distributed monitoring, asset modeling, operation, control, optimization, and protection, as well as their applications to transmission and distribution systems.   


The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:  

Distributed control and/or decentralized monitoring and decision making:   

  • Dynamic state estimation   
  • Distributed control algorithms and their applications for voltage and frequency control   
  • Resilient, robust, scalable, and cybersecure control methods   
  • Machine learning for power systems operations and control (including mini/micro/nano grid)
  • Architectures and frameworks to facilitate realization of transactive energy systems

Microgrids and renewable energy integration and grid services   

  • Integration of renewable energy resources at both distribution and bulk transmission systems   
  • Integration and aggregation of distributed energy resources (DER)   
  • Provisions of behind-the-meter DERs for grid reliability and resilience   
  • Mitigation of renewable source variability   
  • Reliability and resiliency services provided by DERs and microgrids  
  • Mini/micro/nanogrid optimization and control   
  • Electricity market and pricing scheme design to enhance grid operations control and optimization

Analytical computing tools for control and operation:   

  • Cyber-physical system modeling, operation, and co-simulation   
  • Probabilistic stability analysis   
  • Cybersecurity vulnerability assessment, mitigation, and defense   
  • Micro phasor measurement units (PMU) applications   

Power electronics and devices for grid applications:   

  • Grid-forming inverter applications  
  • Virtual inertia emulation techniques   
  • Stability assessment and control algorithms for power electronics-dominated systems   
  • DC distribution systems and DC microgrids

Protection and fault management:   

  • Protection for low-inertia systems and microgrids through predictive strategies 
  • Operating strategies during emergencies, islanding, and black start  
  • Restoration   
  • Utilizing grid-forming capabilities for protection
