Foundations of Smart Grids is an expansive introduction to the core principles and applications relating to the operationalization, integration and management of smart grids - the distributed, renewable, responsive and highly efficient power grid on the verge of radically transforming our energy system. Reviewing the design of smart grid systems, their associated technologies, and operations, the work helps users to synthesize a modern foundational understating of smart grid systems and understand many of their advanced implementations, where sophisticated technologies are employed. Collectively the work serves as a guidebook and primer for early career researchers with a rich integration of current science, modern applications and future implementations.

Key Features

  • Presents critical enabling technologies of smart grid systems alongside relevant aspects of their design, modeling, control, and operations, accompanied by numerical examples
  • Discusses how to approach the integration and management of renewable energy sources in smart grid environments
  • Features didactic pedagogical elements including end-of-chapter problems, supplementing slideshows, and explicative figurative elements to clarify and explain complex concepts
  • Focuses on modern applications and current implementations in industry such as power electronics for smart grids, AI and machine learning-driven modelling, advanced control strategies, and electric vehicles


Graduate students and 1st year PhD students studying smart grids, power systems, renewable energy, power electronics and electric energy conversion; Renewable engineering professionals and early career engineers in power and renewable energy
