Conference Topics

Scope

The scope of EPES 2021 is focus on advances in the understanding of both the fundamental and applied aspects of Electrical Power & Energy Systems and will provide a international forum for researchers and practicing engineers from different disciplines to interact and exchange their latest understandings.
This edition of the conference proceeding welcomes submissions across a range of disciplines, and publishes both theoretical and practical studies, includes electrical power generation, transmission, distribution and utilization, from the viewpoints of individual power system elements and their integration, interaction and technological advancement. The scope covers modelling of power system elements, their design, analysis of their performance and their implementation in specific aspects typical for modern and future electrical power and energy systems. Contributions from academia and from industry are equally encouraged.
Submissions are now invited on the following topics.
