Special Issue on: "Swarm Intelligence in Power Engineering"

Guest Editor:
Dr. Bijaya Ketan Panigrahi, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, India

Swarm intelligence-based optimisation techniques are becoming more popular by the day and have been widely used for optimisation in various domains of science and engineering applications.

Looking into recent trends in the energy sector we see that, as systems becomes more and more competitive in nature, swarm intelligence based-optimisation algorithms play a vital role in solving the complex and large-scale power system optimisation problems.

This special issue will therefore focus on recent advances in swarm intelligence applications in power engineering.
