Call for Papers: IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid

Special Issue on Computational Intelligence Applications in Smart Grids

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, with high fault tolerance. Smart grid is basically the embedding of intelligence to enable bi-directional power flows between sources of electric power generation (traditional and renewable sources), and smart devices (traditional loads, energy storage, etc), within some specified constraints and performance requirements. CI deployment is essential for smart grids to be viable. The objective of this special issue is to address and disseminate state-of-the-art research and development in the applications of computational intelligence in smart grids. Authors are invited to submit their original and unpublished contributions to this special issue with emphasis on CI paradigms and their applicat! ! ions in smart grids, including, but not limited to:

- Adaptive dynamic programming
- Artificial immune systems
- Evolutionary computation
- Fuzzy Systems
- Neural Networks
- Reinforcement Learning
- Swarm Intelligence
- CI Algorithms for modeling, control and optimization
- Communication and control
- Cyber security
- Demand response and Demand side management
- Distributed energy resources
- Emission reductions
- Forecasting (loads and sources)
- Markets and economics
- Methods and algorithms for real-time analysis
- Optimization, Placements and Scheduling
- Optimal Power Flow
- Planning, operation and control
- Plug-in vehicles (G2V and V2G)
- Renewable energy (wind and solar)
- Smart micro-grids
- Smart sensing, sense-making and Situational Awareness
- Synchrophasors and state estimation
- Wide area monitoring, control and protection
- Visualizations for control centers
