Control and Informatics for Demand Response and Renewables Integration

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Following the lead of the UK, many governments worldwide have now made commitments to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. This drive toward a zero-carbon economy requires many technological and social innovations, including advancement and accelerated deployment of industrial digitalization and smart grid concepts. Within the framework of the second digital revolution known as “Industry 4.0,” the smart grid is an augmented energy distribution network that enables real-time communications for monitoring, control, and protection of energy assets as well as facilitating the physical transfer of energy. Smart grid and energy storage provide a solution for the integration of renewable energy assets, which due to their inherent volatility when compared to traditional forms of generation require careful planning and operation; the coordinated, end-to-end economic dispatch and optimization of generation, storage, and demand assets is required along the entire energy value chain. In this chapter, fundamental and applied research work related to control and informatics for supervisory control of energy-related assets in IoT-based energy management systems (EMSs) are described. Key concepts, design procedures, results, and analysis are presented, along with a summary of implementation activities in the context of funded research and innovation projects.
