Future power grids face various challenges due to a rapidly increasing share of renewable energy resources and an increasing interplay with other energy sectors. Distributed energy resources (DERs) such as wind, solar, energy storage, combined heat and power plants, electric vehicles, and smart loads become prevalent. Besides, we are moving towards an integrated energy system (IES) on an unprecedented scale. An IES not only allows the full utilization of renewable energy resources but also achieves higher energy efficiency. The integration of variable sources and the efficient and synergistic utilization of these energies will be a key focus in future developments. Despite the low probability of occurrence, the high impact of extreme weather events and natural disasters also increasing the need for resilience studies on the future distribution grid.

The topics of interests include, but are not limited to:
· Modeling and analysis methods for IES,
· Advanced technologies for DERs and microgrid,
· Active distribution network,
· Impact of DERs interconnection on the distribution network,
· Applications of advanced techniques to control and optimization of IESs,
· Hybrid (with thermal) distribution systems,
· Coordinated control for smart inverters and IESs,
· Enhancing resilience through coordinated multiple energy resources.


Keywords: Distribution energy resource, distribution grid, integrated energy system, microgrid, resilience
