Special Session Decentralized Electricity Markets
Call for Papers
Electricity markets have made competitive environments for complex power systems. Besides, the fast growth of distributed energy resources has created new challenges up-keeping system reliability and stability for the system. However, conventional energy management strategies will not be able to resolve these concerns centrally due to distributed generation volatility and lack of dispatch control . Nonetheless, this need is felt on demand-side of the power systems, such as the distribution or retail participants who want to clarify real and fair price in medium- and low-voltage distribution network locations. Furthermore, centralized electricity markets are not complete enough at present, and cannot provide dynamic reserves that follow consumer behavior due to demand response programs. This Special Session covers discussion and research works related to local energy and electricity markets and decentralized energy management systems.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Markets to incorporate demand response methods.
Artificial intelligence for decentralized electricity markets.
Multi agent-based distributed energy management systems.
Cybersecurity for decentralized electricity markets.
Blockchain applications for decentralized electricity markets.
Coalitions of players in local markets.
Intelligent monitoring, protection, communication, and control in smart distributed power networks.
Agent-based real time adaptation and simulation of energy networks.
Electrical vehicles and intelligent management of transportation systems in distributed power networks.
Big data applications for local energy systems.
Phasor measurement units applications.
Mathematical techniques to deal with Variable Energy generation and consumption.
