Thematic series on Integrating centralized and distributed renewables in future power system

Guest Editor-in-Chief: Chongqing Kang

Renewable energy techniques such as wind power, photovoltaic and concentrated solar power are regarded as the main solution to achieve power system sustainability and energy supply security. Renewable energy will be developed in both centralized and distributed form. However, uncertainty and variability of renewables will fundamentally changes the way that the power system balances the generation and load, in terms of both planning in long time scale and operation in short time scale, and in both transmission and distribution networks. Furthermore, new enablers such as storage, demand response and FACT devices are introducing into power systems to facilitate the integration of renewables. Such huge transition of power system calls for innovative methodologies for planning and operation of transmission and distribution networks. This themaic series will focus on the latest development and research in integrating centralized and distributed renewables in future power system.
