19th Power Systems Computation Conference, Genoa

The Conference

The Power Systems Computation Conference (PSCC) has become one of the most outstanding events in the area. With a change of pace from meeting every 3 years to every 2, PSCC provides a truly international forum for the regular exchange of knowledge and experience on the latest developments in this area.

PSCC addresses theoretical developments and computational aspects with respect to power system applications. There is an emphasis on modelling and simulation for understanding a system of components, plant or actors, the interactions between them and their collective behaviour, and methods to inform decision-making in power systems. Contributions might comment on the analytical techniques, modelling challenges and complex software engineering issues, or what the analyses say in respect of today’s and the future’s power system challenges. Thus, papers from utility and manufacturing industry engineers are just as welcome as those from academic researchers.

The following list of topics is not exhaustive but is offered in order to help prospective authors identify what is likely to be in scope.

Technical Co-Sponsor: IEEE Power & Energy Society

All the papers accepted and presented at the PSCC 2016 will be included in the IEEEXplore digital library.
