This study makes use of a co-simulation software platform capable to consider power system dynamics.The results demonstrate that LTE can be used as communication medium for advanced fault location, extinction, and network reconfiguration in distribution networks.The dual-decomposition method is used in this paper to solve the voltage optimization problem in a fully distributed way.
The architecture of the setup consists of four layers: microgrid, control, communication, and monitoring.The key question motivating this research was whether distributed voltage control systems are a technically effective alternative to centralized ones.Sophisticated component design methods, intelligent information and communication architectures, automation and control concepts, new and advanced markets, as well as proper standards, are necessary in order to manage the higher complexity of such intelligent power systems that form the smart grid.Due to the considerably higher complexity of such cyber-physical energy systems, constituting power system, automation, protection, information and communication technology (ICT), and system services, it is expected that the design and validation of smart grid configurations will play a major role in future technology and system developments.

Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website.Device-to-device communication is implemented to enable peer-to-peer data exchange between agents of the proposed voltage control system.
The paper presents the design, development and hardware setup of a laboratory-based testbed used to validate the performance of the proposed dual-decomposition-based peer-to-peer voltage control.

is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Furthermore, this paper shows that the reduction of performances with mobile background usage does not affect the system and does not cause delays higher than 100 ms, which is the maximum allowable for power system protections.
Full article This paper presents experimental validation of a distributed optimization-based voltage control system.
However, an integrated approach for the design and evaluation ofsmart grid configurations incorporating these diverse constituent parts remains evasive. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited.
