CPES 2022
11th Symposium on Control of Power and Energy Systems
 IFAC · International Federation of Automatic Control
 June 21-23, 2022


IFAC Symposium on Control of Power and Energy Systems (CPES) is a regular symposium which addresses all aspects of modeling, operation, and control of power plants and power systems.

IFAC Symposium on Control of Power and Energy Systems (CPES) is a regular symposium held by IFAC Technical Committee 6.3 on Power & Energy Systems. CPES addresses all aspects of modeling, operation, and control of power plants and power systems, including dynamic interactions between power plants and power systems, constraint and security control aspects, tools and methods for control system design, test and documentation, real-time simulation and dispatching. Development and application of tools and methods such as modern control theory, computational intelligence techniques, and modeling of uncertainties are also important. 

Specifically, IFAC CPES 2022 will focus at the emerging fields like optimal control and management of small and large decentralized units based on renewable resources such as hydro, wind, solar and biomass, the concepts of smart grid, wide-area monitoring and control, virtual power plant, intelligent control in energy systems, and design of energy markets.

About IFAC

The International Federation of Automatic Control, founded in September 1957, is a multinational federation of National Member Organizations (NMOs), each one representing the engineering and scientific societies concerned with automatic control in its own country.

The purpose of the Federation is to promote the science and technology of control in the broadest sense in all systems, whether, for example, engineering, physical, biological, social or economic, in both theory and application. IFAC is also concerned with the impact of control technology on society. The Federation serves to all those concerned with the theory and application of automatic control and systems engineering, wherever situated. To further this aim, it maintains working relationships with other organizations, national and international, especially with other non-governmental professional organizations.

IFAC provides a framework for collaboration between those working in automatic control and systems engineering, irrespective of race, creed or colour, or of geographic location, and promotes free exchange of ideas and experts within its professional fields.

IFAC pursues its purpose by organizing technical meetings, by publications, and by any other means consistent with its constitution and which will enhance the interchange and circulation of information on automatic control activities.

In addition to the triennial IFAC World Congresses, the Federation manifests the progress of automatic control through international symposia, conferences and workshops sponsored or co- sponsored by IFAC.

An IFAC Symposium is a technical meeting covering a well-defined theme of control engineering. Symposia on the same subject are arranged as a regular series, usually on a triennial basis. They are organized by a host country NMO and are scientifically assisted by those IFAC Technical Committees which take an active interest in the selected topics of the meeting. Attendance usually ranges between 100 and 500 participants.
