This special issue of the IEEE Journal on Emerging and Selected Topics in Circuits and Systems (JETCAS) aims at identifying, addressing, and disseminating state-of-the-art research in theory of complex systems with applications to smart grids.

Efficient control of power systems is becoming increasingly difficult as they gain in complexity and size. By considering a power grid and a communication infrastructure as a multiplex network, we propose an automatic control strategy that regulates the mechanical power output of the generators based on information obtained via communication links (wireless or wired). An algorithm that optimizes... Read more on IEEE Xplore

Converter-interfaced power sources (CIPS) are hybrid control systems as they may switch between multiple operating modes. Due to increasing penetration, the hybrid behavior of CIPS, such as wind turbine generators (WTGs), may have significant impact on power system dynamics. In this paper, the frequency dynamics under inertia emulation and primary support from WTG is studied. A mode switching for... Read more on IEEE Xplore
