Session 3: Power Quality in Modern Power Systems and Smart Grid

Power quality is an essential subject of modern electric power systems. In its broadest sense, power quality is a set of constraints that allows electrical systems to operate with reliable, secure, and continuous good quality of power with no additional loss of performance due to any abnormalities. However, because of the development of power systems and the smart grid, new challenges and opportunities in these systems’ power quality performance have emerged. Accordingly, much attention to power system quality should be paid to meet the future system requirements, especially with the unprecedented large-scale integration of renewable energy sources in electrical power systems. If RESs are not adequately allocated, they may lead to various voltage and power quality problems. Therefore, novel solutions must be sought to enable networks to cope with these developments to realize resilient power networks that can host high renewable penetration while ensuring acceptable power quality performance levels.
This special issue aims to bring together university scientists, researchers, and leading researchers to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of electrical systems and intelligent networks. It also provides a platform to showcase knowledge and inspiration and innovation and creativity by motivating researchers to present its new work and ideas in this field.
