Electric power systems are being transformed from older grid systems to smart grids across the globe. The goals of this transition are to address today’s electric power issues, which include reducing carbon footprints, finding alternate sources of decaying fossil fuels, eradicating losses that occur in the current available systems, and introducing the latest information and communication technologies (ICT) for electric grids. The development of smart grid technology is advancing dramatically along with and in reaction to the continued growth of renewable energy technologies (especially wind and solar power), the growing popularity of electric vehicles, and the continuing huge demand for electricity.

This volume, Smart Grid Systems: Modeling and Control, advances the basic understanding of smart grids and focuses on recent technological advancements in the field. This book provides a comprehensive discussion from a number of experts and practitioners and describes the challenges and the future scope of the technologies related to smart grid.

The volume covers a wide range of topics on smart grids, including renewable Energy (solar/wind) penetration to the grid, energy storage, control techniques, energy management, and modeling of smart devices/techniques.

The volume will be valuable to academicians, researchers, and practitioners in the field of power system, as well as to students entering this field.

Key features:

  • provides an overview of the smart grid, with its needs, benefits, challenges, existing structure, and possible future technologies
  • discusses solar photovoltaic (PV) system modeling and control along with battery storage, which is an integral part of smart grids
  • discusses control strategies for renewable energy systems, including solar PV, wind, and hybrid systems
  • describes the inverter topologies adopted for integrating the renewable power generated to the grid
  • covers the basics of the energy storage system and the need for micro grids
  • describes various forecast techniques for renewable energy systems such as solar and wind
  • presents the basics and structure of the energy management system in smart grids, including advanced metering, various communication protocols, and the cyber security challenges
  • explores electric vehicle technology and its interaction with smart grids
