With the rapid development of information technology, the power grid will enter the digital era of the interconnection of everything. In the era of digital power grids, the perception ability of power grids will be greatly enhanced, and ubiquitous connections and massive amounts of data will become the basic characteristics of digitalized power grids. On the one hand, the power grid and its upstream and downstream data will see explosive growth, and the pattern of the interconnection of everything will gradually take shape. Improving the accuracy and timeliness of grid security control and power services will become an irreversible development direction. On the other hand, how traditional equipment adapts to huge amounts of data and connections, how to balance cost and efficiency in communication methods, how many business systems have data fusion and value mining capabilities, and how the future electric power + artificial intelligence model will develop, these issues have received widespread and high attention. Therefore, it is of great significance to study the advanced digital technology in the digitalized power grid.
This Research Topic aims to highlight the current technical state of advanced digital technologies applied in digitalized smart grids, including edge computing, digital twins, information security, electric internet of things et al., analyze the current challenges, and propose possible future research directions. Through these studies, we shall explore ways to use advanced digital technologies to build the next generation of smart grids, promote the efficient use of grid digital assets, give full play to the value of data, and realize the deep integration of big data, artificial intelligence, and other technologies with power grid business.
