IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence

IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence Applications in Smart Grid (IEEE CIASG)

Computational Intelligence (CI) evolves computational models and tools of intelligence capable of handling large raw numerical sensory data directly, processing them by exploiting the representational parallelism and pipelining the problem, generating reliable and just-in-time responses, and having high fault tolerance. Smart grid is basically the embedding of intelligence to enable bidirectional power flows with traditional sources of power generation, renewable sources and energy storage. CI deployment is essential in smart grid to make it a success. Research and deployment of smart grid technologies are being promoted by governments of many countries as a way of addressing energy independence, emission reductions, and bringing resilience to electricity infrastructures. The Symposium on CI Applications in Smart Grid (CIASG) aims at bringing researchers and engineers from academia and industry together to present, interact and review the latest progresses in this emerging field, and to explore future research directions to address its challenges.
The manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format. Click Here to know further guidelines for submission.

Content:

Demand flexibility is the key point in demand response programs where the consumers receive incentives or price signals. With a huge potential to increase the smart grid efficiency, the aim is to take full advantage of the consumers’ flexibility potential. Improving the implementation of demand response programs requires the identification of the main obstacles to the effective use of demand response and to put in place adequate plans to overcome those barriers. For that, effective business models and proper consumers’ remuneration must be ensured. Demand response must be managed together with other distributed energy resources in order to capture greater potential of demand response, namely when considering buildings and local communities.
The contributors for this special session will bring their valuable experience in the development and use of effective solutions in the field.
Submissions are expected from, but not limited to the following topics:
