Workshop Title 3 : Towards Green and Resilient Power Systems
Keywords: Low-carbon, resilience, renewable energy, energy storage, optimization methods
Summary: Power system is the key field to achieving the goal of carbon peak and carbon neutrality. The realization of the "dual carbon" goal will be accompanied by a large-scale grid connection of renewable energy with strong uncertainty and volatility, as well as a large number of interactive devices such as electric vehicles and distributed power sources. At that time, the power system will show a high proportion of renewable energy, and a high proportion of electric power electronic characteristics. The power system in the supply and demand balance, system adjustment, stability characteristics, control and protection, and construction costs will be significantly changed. While enjoying the benefits of green and low-carbon energy, how to ensure the safety of power grid operation is one of the key challenges.
On the one hand, under the influence of global warming and climate change in recent years, the safe and stable operation of the power system is seriously affected by extreme weather. Extreme weather not only causes a surge of load in a short time period but also increases the failure rate of equipment such as the power generation side and transmission line due to the sudden deterioration of operating conditions. Natural disasters accompanied by extreme weather may also lead to damage to power plants, transmission lines, electrical equipment, dispatch and communication facilities, and other key facilities. Under extreme weather or severe interference from external forces, the power system can quickly restore the power supply, which is an essential condition for the power system to cope with emergencies. The climate sensitivity of wind, solar, and hydropower generation, as well as global climate change, makes the need for resilience to quickly restore power supply under extreme weather conditions more frequent and urgent.
On the other hand, the power system needs to maintain transient and dynamic stability after all kinds of disturbances, which is the basic condition for the safe and stable operation of the power system after disturbance. Conventional synchronous power generators have the ability of moment of inertia and voltage support, which is the natural "buffer" of the power system to resist the shock of failure. With the increase in the proportion of renewable energy, the moment of inertia of the power system decreases, while the impact of failure becomes larger. The power system will face multiple challenges such as low inertia, frequency voltage stability, wide frequency oscillation, and stability of information physics system and multi-energy coupling system. This workshop will be focusing on the topics related to low-carbon power system dispatch and power system resilience.

Summary: With the use of more and more renewable clean energy power generation, the new power system suitable for the high proportion of new energy, high proportion of power electronic equipment access is one of the main directions of the development of power system. Superconducting power equipment has the advantages of low loss, small size and high efficiency, which is a very promising power equipment. For example, under the same volume, the transmission energy of hightemperaturesuperconducting cable is obviously higher than that of ordinary power cable, and can realize the transmission of low voltage and high current. Superconducting fault current limiter has no influence on the system when the system is running normally. When the system has short circuit faults, it can quickly limitthe short circuit fault current, which significantly improves the transient stability and reliability of the power system. However, superconducting power equipment will face many new challenges in the use of new power systems. It is urgent for scholars to study the superconducting power technology and equipment suitable for new power systems to improve the efficiency and reliability of new power systems.

Workshop Title 9 : New topology, Control, Stability Analysis and Applications of Modular Multilevel Converter-based HVDC Transmission
Keywords: Modular multilevel converter, HVDC, wide-band resonance, topology, stability analysis
Summary: With the development of power electronic technology, modular multilevel converter (MMC) based high voltage direct current transmission (MMC-HVDC) has been widely applied for long-distance and bulk power transmission, large-scale renewable energy integration, and urban power grid upgrading. The wide applications promote the structure development of the MMC-HVDC from a conventional point-to-point system into a multi-terminal system. Nowadays, MMC-HVDC has become a very complex electric system in both control and DC device integration. The controllability of the DC devices, including but not limited to DC power flower and DC-DC transformer, brings more flexibility while challenging the operation of the MMC-HVDC. In practice, MMC-HVDC will inevitably be subject to various disturbances, such as all kinds of faults and potential wide-band resonance, which have been observed in several real MMC-HVDC projects. In these situations, MMC-HVDC should try its best to operate stably under various disturbances and to avoid the shutdown of the entire system. Thus, the ability of MMC-HVDC to maintain stable operation is closely related to the topology and control performance of the converter station and DC controllable devices. In addition, the new type of power converters and dc devices with lower costs and better performance are continuously emerging, which brings new control and stability issues to the MMC-HVDC system. On the other hand, there are different requirements for the control performance and stability of MMC-HVDC in different application scenarios, such as asynchronous grid interconnection, wind power integration, and so on. The hybrid HVDC system with MMC technology also brings more imagination with the successful operation of the Kunliulong Multi-Terminal HVDC Transmission system. The workshop will discuss the new development of topology, stability analysis, control issues, and future application scenarios associated with MMC-HVDC and identify the direction of future research.

Workshop Title 10 : Advanced Treatment Technologies of Waste Management for the Production of Renewable Energy
Keywords: Waste, Management, Treatment, Sustainability, Energy
Summary: Every year, households around the world produce millions of tons of solid waste, including agricultural waste, various biomass, animal waste, and municipal solid waste, which are dumped in council and municipal landfill sites. At the same time, millions of energy units from coal, oil, and natural gas are burned every day to produce the electricity we need to run our homes and places of employment. An alternative would be to employ natural waste resources such biomass from plant waste, aquatic biomass, animal waste and other waste streams. Energy recovery from these wastes can reduce the harmful consequences of energy and material supplies based on non-renewable resources. And, a variety of high-value products, including liquid and gaseous fuels, fine and bulk chemicals, can be produced from biomass. In this context, biological, biochemical, and thermal processes have been recognized as an appropriate and sustainable strategy for producing value-added products from organic waste streams. Today, a new generation of Waste to Energy conversion technologies are emerging, which hold the potential to create clean, renewable energy from solid and liquid waste materials. Waste to Energy will contribute to the development of a low-carbon society. The energy content available from the combustion of solid waste to gasification and oil, anaerobic digestion of biomass to bio-methanization represents a significant “alternative energy” supply to help reduce the use and our dependency on conventional fossil fuels. An alternative method of managing food and agricultural waste includes "Waste to Wealth," which involves aerobically converting organic waste into compost for use as a soil conditioner. The more common ways in which waste is converted in wealth-such as combustion (incineration), pyrolysis, gasification, or biological treatments such as composting, anaerobic digestion and fermentation, etc., and various combinations of the above. As a result, careful consideration must be given to the characterization of the raw materials, the impact of thermal pretreatment, biological pretreatment, mechanical pretreatment, and the subsequent biochemical processing to create value-added products from a variety of organic materials.

Workshop Title 14 : Towards blockchain, digital twin and metaverse technologies enabled smart grid ecosystem
Keywords: Blockchain, Smart Contract, Security, Privacy-Preserving, Digital Twin, Metaverse
Summary: The smart grid concept is introduced as a new paradigm shift toward integration and coordination of a large number of distributed energy resources (DERs), microgrids, electric vehicles (EVs), vehicle-to-grid (V2G), prosumers (producers&consumers), and energy markets along with traditional power grid network in order to build a sustainable society, at the same time, considering decarbonization of economy to address the climate change challenges. Consequently, while smart grid communications and computing technologies are undergoing a transformation to the digitalization and decentralized topology, figuring out efficient, reliable, and secure energy resources (e.g., EVs, loads, generations, storage) and transactions (e.g., buy, sell, consumption, generation, demands) management to empower the end users is a necessarily a challenging issue. In this context, blockchain, a decentralized ledger technology, has been emerged and showed its great potentiality in diverse application fields of smart grid ecosystem in recent years. Incorporation of blockchain along with advanced communications, control, and computing technologies might support to build trust and tract the resources and transactions, which can considerably address the research challenges of energy resources and transactions management. Nevertheless, the aim of this workshop is to bring researchers and engineers together interested in the latest advancements in this research domain.

Workshop Title 21 : Joint Location-Allocation of Industrial Facility and Prosumer Microgrid: A Transactive Energy Paradigm
Keywords: Stochastic optimization, microgrid sizing and siting, transactive energy, supply chain management
Summary: Manufacturing supply chain operations consume more than one-third of the global energy. Traditional supply chain design models usually focus on the uncertainties in materials, capacity, yield, and demand. However, the challenges of variable generation have not been adequately addressed. This workshop aims to discuss the recent advances in modeling and design of eco-friendly manufacturing supply chains in the nexus of microgrids, electric vehicles, and transactive energy. We present the state-of-the-art from three aspects. First, we propose an integrated facility and microgrid location-allocation model by synthesizing product and transactive energy markets. The model strategically locates the site for establishing factories, warehouses, and microgrids subject to product demand and renewables uncertainty. The model further allocates production, inventory, vehicle routing, energy storage, and electricity trading to lower the annualized cost. Second, the proposed model is demonstrated on a three-tier supply chain network comprised of California, Arizona and Nevada with diverse climate conditions. Numerical experiments show that transactive energy, time-of-use tariff, and climate conditions play a critical role in locating industrial facilities. Locations with stronger onsite wind and solar generation become competitive to establish energy-intensive facilities despite of higher fixed and logistics cost. Third, we discuss the directions of the future research at the interface between prosumer microgrid and sustainable manufacturing, such as expanding spatial and temporal dimensions. In addition, blockchain and smart contract can be introduced to the transactive energy market to facilitate real-time peer-to-peer direct trading.

Workshop Title 22 : Integration of P2G technologies with renewable energy
Keywords: Power to gas; Energy conversion and storage; Integrated Electricity-Gas System; Optimization; Modelling
Summary: It is a significant challenge to develop advanced energy conversion and storage technology for a future sustainable society. Renewable energy development has been unbalanced and rapid, which may lead to a waste of renewable resources due to disturbing regional environmental impacts and the surrounding facilities of some large-scale new energy power plants. Converting electricity into another form of energy for consumption presents a promising solution to these problems. Power to gas (P2G) technology produces hydrogen by hydrolysis of water using renewable energy power, which can supply power during peak power demand of the grid, and store surplus energy when renewable energy power generation is more than power demand. The P2G technology creates hydrogen by hydrolyzing water using renewable energy power, enabling it to supply power during peak grid power demand and store surplus power when renewable energy generation exceeds grid demand. The P2G technology could connect the natural gas network and the electric network, giving the power grid much greater flexibility and making it easier to utilize renewable energy, such as photovoltaics.

Workshop Title 23 : Artificial Intelligent Computation in Electric Load Forecasting
Keywords: Electric load forecasting; meta-heuristic algorithms; AI-based forecasting modeling; LSTM; CNN; Deep learning; decomposition/transformation method.
Summary: Accurate energy forecasting is important to facilitate the decision-making process in order to achieve higher efficiency and reliability in power system operation and security, economic energy use, contingency scheduling, the planning and maintenance of energy supply systems, and so on. In the past decades, many energy forecasting models have been continuously proposed to improve the forecasting accuracy, including traditional statistical models (e.g., ARIMA, SARIMA, ARMAX, multi-variate regression, exponential smoothing models, Kalman filtering, Bayesian estimation models, etc.) and artificial intelligence models (e.g., artificial neural networks (ANNs), knowledge-based expert systems, evolutionary computation models, support vector regression, etc.).
Recently, due to the great development of optimization modelling methods (e.g., quadratic programming method, differential empirical mode method, evolutionary algorithms, meta-heuristic algorithms, etc.) and intelligent computing mechanisms (e.g., quantum computing, chaotic mapping, cloud mapping, seasonal mechanism, etc.), many novel hybrid models or models combined with the above-mentioned intelligent-optimization-based models have also been proposed to achieve satisfactory forecasting accuracy levels. It is worthwhile to explore the tendency and development of intelligent-optimization-based modelling methodologies and to enrich their practical performances, particularly for marine renewable energy forecasting.
All submissions should be based on the rigorous motivation of the mentioned approaches, and all the developed models should also have a corresponding theoretically sound framework. Works lacking such a scientific approach are discouraged. Validation support of existing/presented approaches is encouraged to be done using real practical applications. Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
Østatistical forecasting models (ARIMA, SARIMA, ARMAX, multi-variate regression, Kalman filter, exponential smoothing, etc.)

Workshop Title 28 : Forecasting of Solar Irradiance using hybridization of wavelet variants and deep learning models.
Bidirectional long short-term memory, full wavelet packet transform, wavelet decomposition, solar irradiance, deep learning
The forecasting of solar irradiation is important not only for the grid stability but also for the smooth operation of grid. But the unpredictable and sporadic nature of solar photovoltaic (PV) production has started to pose a danger to the security and dependability of grids that are connected to the solar. Therefore, in an effort to find a stable solution, this work suggests a hybrid model that uses the wavelet variants like wavelet transform (WT), full wavelet packet transform (FWPT) and the bidirectional long short-term memory (BILSTM) to predict a day's worth of solar irradiation. Through a decomposition procedure, the wavelet variants extract numerous frequency properties and statistical aspects from the data. Each decomposed frequency component (sub-series) is then allocated to the standalone BILSTM network with a dropout layer, which serves as a fundamental predictor and derives the subseries' futuristic value. The effectiveness of the suggested model is demonstrated by comparing statistical parameters, including mean absolute error (MAE), mean absolute percentage error (MAPE), root-mean-square error (RMSE), and coefficient of determination (R2), to various contrast models, including naive forecaster, long short-term memory (LSTM), gated recurrent unit (GRU).

Workshop Title 29 : Power Flow Analysis and Its Convergence Improvement Theories for Large-Scale Modern Energy Systems
Keywords: Convergence, Large-scale, Multi-energy systems,Power flow, Transmission-distribution coordination
Summary: The convergence issues in the modern AC/DC hybrid power systems have drawn wide concerns, particularly in light of increasing uncertainty from renewables. Due to the uncertainty of renewable energy and the multiple operation modes of inverters, the power system faces massive operation scenarios and also requires strengthened engine of power flow calculations. For power flow calculations, the traditional numerical iterative techniques may not converge or converge to non-operating points, since they heavily depend on the choice of the initial point. Thus, by using the traditional method, the power flow results might be unreliable, so the secure status of the power system may not be accurately assessed.
This workshop aims to present state-of-art research work on the advanced well convergence method for power system calculation in a massive operation scenarios of modern power system. The topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to:
1.The holomorphic embedded methods in solving AC/DC hybrid power system, distribution system and microgrid
2.The analytical continuation methods for convergence improvement in simulation
3.The identification of vulnerable areas or buses using reliable power flow calculation methods
4.The holomorphic embedded methods for solving integrated energy systems are: the electrical-gas interconnection system, the electrical-heat interconnection system, or the electrical-gas-heat interconnection system.
5.The reliable power flow calculation methods consider bus type conversion, for example, PV to PQ conversion.
6.The advanced voltage risk or margin assessment algorithm considers the influence of various uncertainties.

Workshop Title 31 : Modeling, Stability and Control of Power Electronic Converters Dominated Power Systems
Keywords: Modeling, Stability, Control, Power Converters, Microgrid
Summary: The power system is becoming a power-electronic-converters dominated dynamic system. In some special scenarios, the grid form of an all-power-electronic power system will appear, such as a microgrid, renewable generation stations without supporting of synchronous generators. In a microgrid with its capacity lower than 1~10 MW, we have known how to realize reliable coordinated control of multiple power converters based energy storage systems. But for microgrids with capacity larger than 100 MW, or other large-scale power electronic converters dominated power systems, since power electronic converter has the features of multiple control time-scales, strong nonlinearity,weak overcurrent capacity, grid-forming control and stability are facing significant challenges. It is urgent to explore more perfect modeling, stability analysis and control methods for such power systems, to provide guarantee for the safe and stable operation of new electricity power system.

Workshop Title 35 : Refined modeling of renewables and batteries for energy forecasting, power system dispatching, and microgrid configuration
Keywords: Forecasting; Dispatching; Configuration; Control; Microgrid; Batteries; Photovoltaics; Wind turbines
Summary: Largely owed to the multi-disciplinary nature of large-scale grid integration of variable renewables, such as wind or solar, high-precision and cross-domain modeling of key components of new power system has hitherto been lacking. At the moment, surrogate modeling of wind turbine, photovoltaic (PV), and batteries predominates. Aiming at improving the overall power system operations, this workshop focuses on refined modeling of renewables and batteries (including other storage devices), and how they interact with traditional power system operations, such as forecasting, dispatching, control, or configuration. For example, the theoretical description of the wind power curve is injective, but the actual wind power curve is not; similarly, simple PV model assumes a one-to-one mapping between irradiance/temperature and power, but the actual relationship may be more intricate. On this point, “What happens to forecasting and dispatching if we change these simple models to refined ones?” is the kind of question that this workshop seeks to inquire.
