Special Session

Special Session Introduction

RE100 is a global initiative led by Climate Group and in partnership with CDP, bringing together the world's most influential businesses committed to 100% renewable electricity. Future smart power distribution networks will follow the standards of RE100 to accelerate change towards zero carbon grids at scale. For a power distribution network with 100% renewable energy resources, power electronics systems must be highly penetrated. As the number of power electronics-based devices significantly increased, it is clear that existing technical solutions and industry practices will no longer be suitable. Several critical issues in stability, security, safety, scalability, controllability, power quality, and efficiency, etc., need to be addressed to bridge the gap between the two research areas of distribution systems and power electronics, to facilitate the realization of 100% renewable energy sources with high penetrations of power electronics. By considering the growing interest in power electronics-based smart power distribution networks around the world, this special session invites a broad spectrum of contributors to develop the interdisciplinary technical approaches. This special section aims at discussing on various relevant topics associated with high penetrations of power-electronics for renewable energy sources to support plug-and play, enhance the economic efficiency, and improve the capability, resiliency, reliability, security, safety, scalability, robustness of future RE100-compliant smart power distribution networks.

Topics of this special session include, but not limited to the following:

  • Solid-state technologies for distribution-level applications.
  • Grid integrations of inverters, rectifiers, DC-DC converters, etc.
  • Optimization and control power electronics-based power systems
  • Stability, reliability and resilience of microgrids
  • Cyber-security issues of smart power distribution systems
  • The cutting-edge communication technology in smart power distribution system
  • Economic dispatch of power electronics-based distributed energy resources
  • Applications of Artificial Intelligence for smart power distribution systems
  • Proof-of-concept demonstration and real-world implementations
  • Innovative training activities and new technology
