The Smart Grids are electricity networks that promise to enhance the operational efficiency of nationwide power supply via distributed generation with bi-directional electricity flow. This objective is achieved by allowing intelligent monitoring and control of different components within the distribution and transmission lines as well as other systems from utilities on one side to the end user on the other side, while maintain the power quality, security, reliability and safety with minimum environmental impacts. Governments around the world are investing heavily in this technology to ensure optimum energy use and supply, enable better planning for outage responses and recovery, and facilitate the integration of heterogeneous technologies around the grid, such as renewable energy systems, electrical vehicle networks, and smart homes. Smart Grids present enormous engineering challenges in the design and integration of electrical grid with communication and network technologies, along with substantial questions around required security and privacy of different components within the grid. The SGE’12 conference aims to provide an opportunity to discuss various engineering challenges of smart grid design and operation, by focusing on advanced methods and practices for designing different components and their integration within the grid, and to provide a forum for researchers from academia and professionals from industry, as well as government regulators, to tackle these challenges and to discuss and exchange knowledge and best practices about design and implementation of Smart Grid.

Topics of interest include (but not limited to) the following:
  • Grid infrastructures design, planning, operation and management
  • Power systems design and applications
  • Sensors, communications and network
  • Grid modeling, simulation, and data management
  • Engineering design of grid applications
  • Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) systems
  • Grid protection, reliability, power quality and maintenance
  • Smart metering, measurement, instrumentation, and control
  • Customer information security and privacy
  • Transmission & distribution lines
  • Renewable energy and distributed generation within microgrids
  • Computation and optimization
  • Smart homes
  • Standardization and interoperability
  • Pricing, policies, and energy planning
