About This Topic

Dear Colleagues,

Modern power system networks incorporate many critical components, including intermittent renewable energy resources, critical and non-critical loads, and the active participation of various stakeholders. Such incorporation into the most complex infrastructures ever devised by human-being requires a lot of sophisticated tools and strategies for their stable and reliable operation. With the invention of high computing devices, the application of computational and artificial intelligence techniques gained huge momentum for the effective management of power systems.

This Special Issue is a unique platform for power system researchers and decision-makers. The researchers present their state-of-the-art research findings and observations that come from the deployment of various machine learning and metaheuristic optimization strategies in the power sector, and the decision-makers will adopt appropriate technologies for the management of electric utilities. The scope of the issue includes:

  1. Power system stability
  2. Power system control and operation
  3. Economic dispatch
  4. Power quality and fault diagnosis
  5. Smart grid data analytics
  6. Renewable energy technologies in the power sector
  7. Circular economy
  8. Machine learning approaches
  9. Optimization strategies
  10. Metaheuristic algorithms
  11. Industry 4.0 applications in the energy sector

LFO Damping Enhancement in Multimachine Network Using African Vulture Optimization Algorithm

Received: 20 June 2023;  Published: 30 January 2024;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2401003


The prolonged presence of low-frequency oscillation (LFO) in power system networks (PSN) poses a significant threat to their stability. Hence, engineers and researchers have continuously developed effective strategies to mitigate the issue and enhance the stability of the PSN. This article proposes a new approach using the African Vultures [...]

Generalized Normal Distribution Optimization Algorithm for Economic Dispatch with Renewable Resources Integration

Received: 18 June 2023;  Published: 28 September 2023;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2303030


In an electric power system operation, the main goal of economic dispatch (ED) is to schedule the power outputs of committed generating units efficiently. This involves consideration of relevant system equality and inequality constraints to meet the required power demand at the lowest possible operational cost. This is a challenging optimi [...]
