Modern civilization on the earth is getting more reliant on electrical infrastructures for our daily lives, and the recent pandemic outbreak and global climate change have highlighted the electricity demand and it should preferably be fulfilled by sustainable power generation. For that purpose, modern power systems are transformed to be smarter by incorporating renewable power technologies and advanced control schemes, to operate such ever more complicated systems. As a quintessential example of networked systems, power grids compose one of the world’s most significant engineering systems not only for their sizes but also for the relevant disciplines involved in developing and operating them. Both on the structural and dynamical side, the network structures utilize rich toolkits developed in various disciplines to investigate the properties of grid topology or interactions between power components.
By organizing this satellite meeting, we set up the stage by gathering researchers from various disciplines to tackle the challenges of power systems ahead of us. We intend to narrow the gap between different approaches, expecting to promote collaboration between researchers with their sparkling ideas and hopefully yield innovative solutions that possibly contribute to helping the sound transition towards a sustainable power system.
