The 2018 Mediterranean Conference on Power Generation, Transmission, Distribution and Energy Conversion will be the 11th international conference of the established MEDPOWER platform that brings together the academia and industry experts in the power & energy sector.
MEDPOWER2018 will provide a platform for professional power engineers, technicians, researchers, scholars, computer scientists and other industry specialists to discuss state-of-the-art developments in the academia and industry as well as providing opportunities for networking and collaboration through series of presentations, talks, discussions and special sessions.
MEDPOWER 2018 focuses on all aspects of power system operation, integration of ICT and energy systems as well as addressing challenges in the energy markets, regulation and power system management.
The technical programme is grouped in 3 major tracks:
- Operational aspects of power system, focusing on modelling and analyses: Power system reliability and security – what do smart technologies bring? Blackout prevention, system resilience and restoration. Wide-area monitoring and control. Power system dynamics. Power system protection. Multi-energy systems (P2X). Electro-mobility. Power lines and transformers. Distribution system monitoring, operation and control. Aggregation of distributed energy resources. Flexible sources at the distribution level. Power electronics and HVDC – is the future power system a DC system? Mathematical and computational issues in modelling and simulation. Forecasting methods.
- Energy system challenges in the presence of growing uncertainty and unbundling: Power system planning and operation. Asset management. Very high integration of renewable energy resources. Distributed storage systems, both on transmission and distribution. Power system economics, energy markets and regulation (integration of RES and DER into markets). Uber like models, energy communities, microgrids. Uncertainty and risk management methods. Energy efficiency. Distribution level market. Peer to peer trading.
- Integrated aspects of information and communication technologies (ICT) and energy systems: Cyber security in power systems operation and control. ICT-driven intelligent and autonomous controls. Modelling of cyber-physical energy and communication systems. Concepts and ICT solutions for flexible prosumers. Data-driven modelling and big data management. Machine learning, statistics and computational intelligence. Geographic information systems energy system applications.
