Fuzzy Expert System in Sustainable Energy Distribution for Smart Grid Applications

A city is safe and productive when it offers the residents with efficient resource planning and optimized electricity utilization. Smart grid collects data from various sensors and servers for supervision of energy demand in a network. It offers several advantages mainly in energy demand management by controlling electricity consumption of users, in fault anticipation and locating power outages remotely. Smart grids use various sustainable sources to produce electricity and distribute it efficiently. Sustainable energy distribution also addresses climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions significantly. Though the smart grid is a two-way communication distributed energy network and uses renewable energy for production and consumption, it still has significant challenges. It lies in the substantial upfront costs associated with implementing the necessary infrastructure upgrades and technologies required for a comprehensive smart grid system. Additionally, interoperability issues between various technologies and standards can hinder seamless integration and data exchange among different components of the smart grid, cybersecurity and data privacy of interconnected smart grids make it susceptible to potential cyber threats and unauthorized access. As a result of these limitations, the full-scale adoption and applicability of smart grid technologies continue to face challenges that necessitate concerted efforts to realize its potential on a broader scale.

Sustainable energy development depends mainly on energy savings, energy production efficiency and finding alternatives to fossil fuels. The intermittent nature of solar and wind power generation poses a major challenge to the use of sustainable energy resources. Moreover, the grid operator needs to prevent overload when both sustainable and traditional modes of power generation are used. So, maintaining a balanced energy supply is another major challenge in a sustainable energy distribution system. In order to assist in the fast and efficient processing of the energy distribution system, it is critical to focus on optimizing the supply energy data. Optimization technologies like the fuzzy expert system can be used to overcome the challenges when integrating different energy systems and for optimal selection of energy resources or technologies.

This special issue holds significant importance within the context of smart grid technology and sustainable energy distribution systems worldwide.
