About This Topic

Although various distributed renewable generation (DG) systems such as solar and wind have been used for many years, it is still a challenge to manage them in an optimal way which benefits both consumers and the grid. This is because of uncertainties in generated power by some renewable resources, energy demand by consumers, utility grid performance and energy tariffs. Therefore, a wide range of research related to the energy management and control methods are welcome for this special issue. This includes but is not limited to the demand–side management techniques, off-line optimization methods, real-time rule-based methods, intelligent methods based on fuzzy logic, artificial neural networks, genetic algorithms and particle swarm optimization, programming methods such as dynamic programming, linear programing, mixed integer linear programing, and quadratic programing.
