This book presents cutting-edge perspectives and research results in smart energy spanning multiple disciplines across four main topics: smart metering, smart grid modeling, control and optimisation, and smart grid communications and networking.

Topics covered include;

  • privacy-preserving data aggregation in smart metering systems
  • smart price-based scheduling of flexible residential appliances
  • smart tariffs for demand response from smart metering platforms
  • decentralised models for real-time renewable integration in future grid
  • distributed and decentralised control in future power systems
  • multi-objective optimisation for smart grid system design
  • frequency regulation of smart grid via dynamic demand control and battery energy storage systems
  • distributed frequency control and demand-side management
  • game theory approaches for demand side management in the smart grid
  • energy storage systems and grid integration
  • overview of research in the ADVANTAGE project
  • big data analysis of power grid from random matrix theory
  • a model-driven evaluation of demand response communication protocols for smart grid
  • energy-efficient smart grid communications
  • cyber security of smart grid state estimation: attacks and defense mechanisms
