Call for papers: Emerging Technologies and Methodologies for Power Systems Reliability and Security Assessment
A special issue of the International Journal of Reliability and Safety (IJRS)
Paper submission deadline: 30 April 2007
Authors will be notified of the review decisions by: 30 June 2007
Electrical grids are, in general, amongst the most reliable systems worldwide. These large interconnected systems, however, are subject to a host of challenges – aging infrastructure, need for siting new generation near load centers, transmission expansion to meet growing demand, distributed resources, dynamic reactive compensation, congestion management, grid ownership vs. system operation and reliability coordination etc. Some of the major challenges facing the electrical industry today include balancing between resource adequacy, reliability, economics, environmental and other public purpose objectives to optimise transmission and distribution resources to meet the growing demand. We encourage all researchers working in this area to submit papers to this Special Issue.
