The Power Systems Computation Conference (PSCC) has become one of the most outstanding events in the area. With a change of pace from meeting every 3 years to every two, PSCC provides a truly international forum for the regular exchange of knowledge and experience on the latest developments in this area. PSCC addresses theoretical developments andcomputational aspects with respect to power system applications from micro-grids to mega-grids. There is an emphasis on modelling and simulation for understanding a system of components, plants, or actors, the interactions between them and their collective behaviour, and methods to inform decision-making in power systems. Contributions might comment on the analytical techniques, modelling challenges, and complex software engineering issues, or what the analyses say with respect to today’s and the future’s power system challenges. Thus, papers from utility and manufacturing industry engineers are just as welcome as those from academic researchers.
