    Nowadays, the third energy revolution has taken place. Many developed countries have formulated clean energy development strategies and announced the time for phasing out thermal and nuclear power to reduce carbon emissions. Meanwhile, China has made a commitment to the world that the carbon emissions of China will peak before 2030, and the carbon neutrality will be achieved before 2060. Therefore, it is of great significance to study the development pathway of clean electricity of China. The reserves and characteristics of clean energy such as hydro, wind, and solar in China are analyzed. The medium and long-term power demand of China is projected, and the power system structure in 2030 and 2050 are respectively estimated based on the electric power and energy balance equations. In addition, the trend of carbon emissions is also analyzed. Some suggestions are proposed to guide the development of China’s clean electricity. The results indicate that the “carbon peaking” of China’s power system would arrive in 2027, and the clean electricity of China is projected to exceed 50% of the total energy production in 2030. Thermal and nuclear power can be replaced by clean electricity such as hydro, wind, and solar energy in 2050, the power industry will achieve “zero CO2 emission”, and the transformation of the green power system will be achieved in response to carbon peaking and carbon neutrality goals.

    To improve the accuracy of photovoltaic (PV) power prediction, this paper proposes a novel weather classification method. First, it distinguishs the clear days and cloudy days according to the total cloud cover. Then, it further classifies the cloudy days into three subtypes to investigate whether the sun is obscured by clouds. This method can effectively identify the characteristics of key meteorological environmental factors that affect PV output and form a new classification index sky condition factor (SCF) by weighted summation. This method has clear physical meanings, good discrimination, and easy quantification. The reasonable classification of weather types can eliminate the coupling relationship between many meteorological environmental factors and reduce the dimension of input variables, which makes it easy for statistical modeling. Based on the theoretical and the statistical approachs respectively, the modeling and verification are conducted and the results show that the method can effectively improve the accuracy of PV power prediction.

    To respond to the demand of achieving carbon peaking and carbon neutrality goals, and to construct a complete “source-grid-load-storage” new energy power system, a distributed photovoltaic net load forecasting model based on Hamiltonian Monte Carlo inference for deep Gaussian processes (HMCDGP) is proposed. First, direct and indirect forecasting methods are used to examine the accuracy of the proposed model and to obtain spot forecasting results. Then, the proposed model is used to perform probability forecasting experiments and produce interval prediction results. Finally, the superiority of the proposed model is verified through the comparative experiments based on the net load data of 300 households recorded by Australia Grid. After obtaining the exact net load probabilistic forecasting results, the photovoltaic production can be fully utilized via power dispatch, which can reduce the use of fossil energy and further reduce the carbon emission.

    Due to the difference in load characteristics and influencing factors in large-scale distribution transformer load forecasting, if all the distribution transformers share a unified model, the prediction accuracy is low, and if the model is built for each distribution transformer, the computational resources will be excessively consumed. An Attention-LSTM short-term forecasting method of distribution load based on multi-dimensional clustering is proposed. The non-parametric kernel method is used to perform probability fitting on the daily load characteristics to form a typical daily load sequence. Improved two-level clustering is applied for load clustering, taking the Euclidean warping distance and influence factors as the similarity evaluation criteria. AP clustering is utilized for obtaining similar time-series, and training sets are formed to train the Attention-LSTM model. Different Attention-LSTM models are obtained by training for different distribution load types and time-series. The effectiveness and practicability of the method proposed are verified by the load data and meteorological data of a municipal distribution network. The accuracy rate is increased by 2.75% and the efficiency is increased by 616.8%.

    At present, new elements such as distributed new energy and electric vehicles have emerged in the distribution network, which changes the composition of loads, enriches the connotation of loads, and poses severe challenges to load forecasting. In fact, loads are aggregated in a bottom-up manner in multiple voltage levels of the distribution network, but such hierarchical characteristics are rarely considered in current load forecasting researches. Therefore, a multi-level load collaborative forecasting method based on the distributed optimization algorithm is proposed aimed at ensuring the bottom-up aggregation consistency of loads and jointly improving the performance of load forecasting at all levels. First, the distributed optimization concept based on the alternating direction method of multipliers is adopted to construct a multi-level load collaborative forecasting framework which adapts to the hierarchical characteristics of distribution network and has less data interaction. Then, a specific forecasting method based on the long short term-memory neural network and federated learning is proposed. By aggregating the bottom load forecasting results step by step, the bottom-up integrated load forecasting of distribution network can be realized. The results of calculation examples show that the proposed method has a high accuracy and a great application prospect.

    With the objective of carbon neutrality, renewable energy resources gradually become the main power supply, whose variability poses great challenges to the operation and optimization of the system, especially to the power distribution network. In order to solve the problem of reactive power caused by high penetration of renewable energy sources, a centralized optimization model is proposed, which takes reactive power optimization and “generation-network-load-storage” multi-energy integration into account. The model aims at optimizing the operating cost and minimizing network losses and carbon emissions of the system. Reactive power compensation, regulation of energy storage, and energy conversion are considered to achieve safe and low-carbon economic dispatch of the power and gas systems. An improved second-order cone relaxation method is used for the convex relaxation of non-linear equality constraints concerned with the distribution network. The switching capacity produced by discrete reactive power compensators can be exactly linearized by the application of the big M approach. The simulation results demonstrate that the proposed method could effectively compensate the reactive power required by the grid-connection point of wind turbine, coordinate the energy interaction between the power and gas, thus improving the stability and elasticity of the distribution network after integration of large-scale renewable energy sources, which helps promote the consumption of renewable energy.

    In order to improve the competitiveness of wind power in participating in the power market, promote low-carbon operation of the power system, and meet the new requirements for the completeness and flexibility of the production simulation model due to the uncertainty of wind power output,this paper analyzes the electricity cost composition from the perspective of low-carbon economy, and applies the stochastic programming theory to propose a short-term production simulation model of power system containing wind power.

    The goal of “carbon peaking and carbon neutrality” puts forward higher requirements for low-carbon operation of power system considering security and stability. The large-scale access of new energy easily leads to problems such as uneven distribution of power flow and electromechanical oscillation. As the representative device of the third-generation flexible AC transmission system (FACTS), interline power flow controller (IPFC) is greatly capable of power flow control, damping control and transient stability control, but the main objectives of IPFC vary considerably under different working conditions, and there is contradiction between the goals. First, based on the improved relative gain matrix (MRGA) theory, the system state equation with IPFC was linearized, the interaction between targets was quantitatively analyzed, the superposition position of the additional controller was selected, and the interaction between steady-state control and dynamic control was weakened. Then, for the transient process, combined with fuzzy logic theory, the IPFC multi-objective coordinated controller was designed. Finally, the controller parameters were optimized using the particle swarm algorithm. While improving the transient stability and small disturbance stability, the controller reduced the power flow overshoot during the transient process and enhanced the coordinated control ability of IPFC under different system operating conditions. It was helpful to solve the problems of energy transmission and consumption, safety and stability control caused by the large load, low inertia, and random fluctuations of the power system under the “dual carbon” background.

    Line hardening and energy storage configuration are important parts of the pre-disaster planning defense strategy, which can effectively improve the disaster prevention and emergency response capabilities of the hybrid AC-DC distribution system (HDS). Under the background of frequent extreme events, a method to improve the resilience of hybrid AC-DC distribution system considering line hardening and energy storage resource allocation is proposed, and a two-stage robust optimization model is constructed. Essentially, the model is a tri-level mixed integer nonlinear programming problem. The outer level evaluates the active behavior of HDS to determine the line hardening and energy storage system configuration strategies, the middle level determines the worst line failure set after the extreme event occurs, which is the passive behavior of HDS, and the inner level evaluates the active behavior of HDS to determine the emergency response and the operation strategies. Based on the nested column and constraint generation algorithm (nested column and constraint generation, NC&CG), the 3-level mixed integer linear programming model is solved. Finally, a simulation analysis is conducted with a 9-node DC distribution network and an improved IEEE-33 node hybrid AC-DC distribution system coupled with a ring AC distribution network as an example. The results show that the proposed method can effectively improve the resilience of the distribution network and ensure its safe and reliable operation in extreme events.

    It is urgent to vigorously develop renewable energy to achieve the goal of “carbon peaking and carbon neutrality”. Unlike traditional thermal units, the marginal cost of renewable energy units is zero. With the reform of the electricity spot market, renewable energy is bound to have a huge impact on the market-clearing results and the operation of the power system. Considering the actual spot market operating rules, an electricity spot market simulation framework is established based on the security-constrained unit commitment and economic dispatch models for the operation simulation of the electricity spot market. Taking the actual data of a provincial power grid as an example, a quantitative analysis of the impact of renewable energy on the market-clearing results in the spot market environment is conducted. The simulation results show that, in the spot market environment, the participation of renewable energy will reduce the average electricity price, the system operating costs, and the renewable energy accommodation. At the same time, the profit space of the market units will be compressed.

    In this paper, an optimal sizing and placement model for distributed generation (DG) is established, which includes active power losses, voltage profile, pollution emission, DG costs, and meteorological conditions. Since optimizing placement and sizing are discrete and continuous variables respectively, the model established is a highly nonlinear complex one with discrete optimization variables. Therefore, the adaptive manta ray foraging optimization (AMRFO) algorithm is applied to obtain the optimal Pareto front, which has a rich and diverse search mechanism, individual updating mechanism, and advanced Pareto solution selection mechanism. For this model, a better solution of high quality can be obtained. In order to avoid the influence of subjective setting of weight coefficient, the ideal point method based on Mahalanobis distance is used to make Pareto front decision. Finally, the simulation based on the IEEE 33, 69-bus distribution network and the IEEE 33, 69-bus distribution network in isolated network operation are implemented. The results show that compared with the traditional multi-objective intelligent optimization algorithm, AMRFO algorithm can obtain a more widely distributed and uniform Pareto front. While considering the economy, the optimized distribution network voltage profile and active power losses can be significantly improved.
