Call for Regular Paper

Our Conference theme is ‘Energy Resilience & Sustainability for Smart Nations’ and will provide a vibrant platform for knowledge sharing among the stakeholders of the electricity industry to address challenges and opportunities in future’s smart grid technologies and transformation that enhances tomorrow’s  visions for a sustainable and resilient pathway in management and power delivery.

All submitted papers will be evaluated based on their merits, particularly their importance to practical aspects of smart grid technologies, novelty, quality of execution, and presentation. Submitted papers may be rejected for being out of scope or raises ethical concerns, at the discretion of the PC chairs. Authors who have questions about whether their paper is in scope are encouraged to ask the PC chairs in advance.

Conference Tracks

This year, the organizing committee will feature a multi-track format and invites contributions in all areas related to smart grid technologies, including (but not limited to) the following:

    1. System Planning and Operation with High-Level Renewable Energy Resources (Track1)
      Smart grid system planning, operation, reliability, T&D interface issues and solutions, system modeling, real-time simulation, co-simulation techniques, preventive maintenance, active distribution network, innovative state estimation tools, frequency response, ancillary services, and large-scale operation with distributed generation.
    2. Information and Communication Technologies and Cyber-Physical Security (Track2)
      Roles of ICT in smart grids, smart metering, data acquisition and monitoring, sensor networks, information and communication protocols and standards, 5G techniques and applications to smart grid, big data analytics, cloud computing, data management, substation automation, and cyber-physical security.
    3. Renewable Generation Integration and Low-Inertia Grid (Track3)
      Power electronic circuit topologies and control strategies, integration of inverter-based resources (IBRs), grid-forming and grid-following controls, stability and power quality issues, grid-connected energy storage systems and their control, electric vehicle charging technologies and its impact in grid operation, overlay grids, electric drives, electric vehicle technologies, solid-state transformers.
    4. Artificial Intelligence for Grid Resilience Enhancement (Track4)
      Models and tools to simulate and quantify climate change impacts on grid reliability and resiliency, resiliency metrics and hardening techniques, use of renewable energy for grid resilience, proactive control, fast restoration, AI/machine learning for grid resilience, machine learning for transient stability analysis, smart grid protection solutions.
    5. Grid-Edge Systems and Technologies (Track5)
      Microgrid, Islanding, energy & demand-side management system, and consumer behavior, grid-interactive efficient buildings, energy efficiency, grid-edge intelligence, district heating and cooling, smart cities solutions, restoration and mitigation of extreme events.
    6. Electricity Market, Innovative Business Mechanism, Policy/Regulatory Aspects (Track6)
      Regulatory aspects, policies, standards, electricity market mechanics, design and business models, economic impacts on energy market price, and smart grid awareness.

Each track operates as a separate mini-conference, with its own Track Program Chair and Track Program Committee. The overall process is managed by the Conference Co-Chairs. At the time of submission, authors must select one track, which should be the most relevant to the topic of the paper. We understand that some papers might span multiple topics. In specific cases, PC members might be asked to provide reviews for papers outside their track, in an effort to provide the best possible reviews to the authors.

IEEE Policy

Manuscripts that are under reviewed must not contain plagiarized materials. Moreover, author(s) must ensure that there is no instances of double submission; submitted to any other conference at the same time. IEEE Power & Energy Society takes this matters seriously and will take action against any author who engages in any such practice. Follow these links to learn more:
