About the book

Power systems are experiencing substantial changes that will alter their operation forever. Proliferation of distributed generation and the increased ability to monitor different parts of the electrical grid offer unprecedented opportunities for consumer and the grid operators. Energy can be generated near the consumption areas, which decreases transmission burdens and novel control schemes can be utilized to operate the grid closer to its limits. In other words, same infrastructure can be used at higher capacities thanks to increased efficiency. Also, new players are integrated into this grid such as smart meters with local control capabilities, electric vehicles that can act as mobile storage devices and smart inverters that can provide auxiliary support. To achieve stable and safe operation. it is necessary to observe and coordinate all of these components in the smartgrid.

All of this requires extensive communication to collect data from all corners of the network, monitor the system status and send necessary instructions, in case of need. Considering that there are countless many different devices from a myriad of manufacturers, achieving this highly depends on establishing a standard communication approach. Furthermore, connecting different devices that require continuous communication with different bandwidth and security levels is not a trivial task. Novel communication topologies and optimization approaches are needed.

An important piece of the puzzle is controlling smartgrid devices for specific purposes such as Demand Side Management or Electric Vehicle Charging Coordination. Collection of data and successful monitoring of the grid only become meaningful, if there are proper solutions implemented to dispatch storage devices, coordinate EV charging or trigger protection schemes.

This book is intended to cover new approaches developed for communication and control in smartgrids. Traditional power systems use very little communication and dynamic control, therefore, such solutions are direly needed to successfully achieve power system revolution.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Maja Bozicevic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.

FAQs

What is Open Access publishing process?

Open Access publishing movement started in early 2000s, when the academic leaders from around the world participated in the formation of the Budapest Initiative. They developed recommendations for Open Access publishing process “which has worked for the past decade to provide the public with unrestricted, free access to scholarly research—much of which is publicly funded. Making the research publicly available to everyone—free of charge and without most copyright and licensing restrictions—will accelerate scientific research efforts and allow authors to reach a larger number of readers.” (reference: http://www.budapestopenaccessinitiative.org/)

IntechOpen’s co-founders, both scientists, created the company while doing research in robotics at the Vienna University. Their goals to spread the research freely “for the scientists, by the scientist’ to the rest of the world, aligned with the Open Access movement, and the company soon became the signator of the Budapest Initiative, which currently has more than 1000 supporting organizations worldwide, ranging from universities to funders.

At IntechOpen, we are excited to be working with organizations and people who care about scientific discovery, put the academic needs of scientific community first, and provide an Open Access environment where scientists can maximize their contribution to humanity. By opening access to the world’s scientific research articles and book chapters, we hope to inspire greater opportunity for collaboration, scientific discovery and progress. We gladly follow the Open Access definition: “By “open access” to [peer-reviewed research literature], we mean its free availability on the public internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself. The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and the only role for copyright in this domain, should be to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited.” (reference: http://www.budapestopenaccessinitiative.org/)
