Special Issue on “Smart Grid Communications Systems”

The future-generation power grid, also known as smart grid, is a
modernized grid that uses state-of-the-art information technology in the
areas of sensing, communications, monitoring, control and computing to
improve greenness, efficiency, security, sustainability and stability.
The success of smart power grid is highly dependent on the communication
systems that support efficient two-way energy and information flows. In
addition to delivering a large amount of power data, the communication
architecture is required to support demand response management, load
balancing, self-healing and operation in islanded mode, and seamless
integration of renewable energy sources. The emerging research field of
smart grid has created multi-disciplinary research opportunities and
The aim of this special issue is to present a collection of high-quality
research papers that report the latest research advances in smart grid
communication systems.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
•    Communications architectures and systems
•    Smart Meters and Automatic Metering Infrastructure (AMI)
•    Home-area, Neighborhood-area, Field-area, and Wide-area networks
•    Sensor and actuator networks for smart grid
•    Cyber-physical system and cyber-physical approach
•    Analysis, model, optimization, monitoring, and control
•    Security and privacy management
•    Demand response management
•    Greenness, efficiency, reliability, availability, robustness, and
•    Simulation related issues regarding Smart Grid communications
•    Communication in Smart Grids applications, e.g., Home Energy Management, AMI,
      Outage Management, Distribution Management, Distribution Automation, etc.
