Dear colleague,

Call for Papers to Special Session SS04 - Event-based observations and
control of renewable energy flows (in inertia-less scenario)



Aim and scope:

This special session is to bring together researchers and practitioners from
a wide spectrum of engineering disciplines including control, communication,
signal processing, and electronic instrumentation dealing with

the event-based sensing in general, event-based real-time observations of
energy, frequency and phasors, attributes of power quality, and the control
of inertia-less smart grid.

In the recent past, energy distribution panorama was dominated by
timer-driven energy monitors (PMU, RTU, smart meters) reporting data at
regular time instants. Averaged data are useful to support several business
operations, but an important step beyond the state of the art is given by
the real-time compressed/sparse approach to measurements and control. Next
generation event-based energy monitors supplying the data to AMI and the
SCADA were presented first time during the EBCCSP-2015. Fossil and nuclear
fuel power requires long supply lines in order to provide almost constant
flow of fuel. It lends itself to centralized power systems. In the 20th
century electricity system, huge fossil power plants required enormous
concentrations of capital, concentrating not only power generation but
control of the grid.

The advent of renewable kinds of energy determined disruptive changes. Wind,
solar, and geothermal energies are available everywhere and are broadly
commercially viable. The economies of scale of both wind and solar are much
more modest: no long supply lines and much smaller capital requirements for
cost-effective energy production. Renewable energy lends itself to a
decentralized system of power generation and ownership. Technically
speaking, 99% or more of renewable energy is incompatible with big coal and
nuclear power plants that cannot adjust their output to accommodate more
wind and solar. New control requirement is about scaling the production
rapidly to adjust to fluctuations in demand/response (events).


Topics within the scope of the Special Session:

We will consider any kind of contribution related to event-based approach to
observations, measurements, and control without restrictions on topics. We
invite theoretical and applied research work (regular papers

up to 8 pages). We specifically encourage practical and real life
applications (industrial papers up to 5 pages). 


Submission of Papers: The working language of the conference is English. The
special session papers are limited to 8 double column pages in a font no
smaller than 10-points. Manuscripts must be submitted electronically in PDF
format, according to the instructions contained in the Conference web site.

Paper Acceptance: Each accepted paper must be presented at the conference by
one of the authors. The final manuscript must be accompanied by a
registration form and a registration fee payment proof. All conference
attendees, including authors and session chairpersons, must pay the
conference registration fee, and their travel expenses.

No-show Policy: The EBCCSP 2016 Organizing Committee reserves the right to
exclude a paper from distribution after the conference at IEEE Xplore if the
paper is not presented at the conference.
