The 2021 IEEE PES Innovative Smart Grid Technologies Latin America (ISGT Latin America 2021) is sponsored by IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES). It will be a virtual conference, from 15-17 September 2021.

The aim of the IEEE PES ISGT Conference is to provide an international forum for experts to promote, share, and discuss innovations and developments in the field of smart grid technologies and applications. The academic and industrial community will address new challenges and share solutions at the interface of technology, information, and complex systems, and discuss future research directions. IEEE PES ISGT-Latin America 2021 will feature keynotes, plenary sessions, paper, and poster sessions, industry presentations, and panels by worldwide experts on the smart grid and related technologies.

We invite the submission of original, unpublished technical papers on topics including but not limited to:

  • Industry experience in deploying smart grid technologies for power generation, transmission, distribution, energy conversion, and storage.
  • Smart grid planning, design, and operation.
  • Information and communication technologies for smart grids, interoperability, and cyber-security.
  • Wide area monitoring, protection, and control.
  • Power electronics, control, and protection systems for smart grid applications.
  • Demand response and real-time pricing.
