This special issue aims to bring together researchers, scientists, professors, research scholars, and students to share and disseminate information and knowledge on scientific research works related to smart grid, communication, safety, embedded system software, and hardware, digital signal processing (DSP) processors, intelligent communication hardware, and applications. The special issue will provide the authors an opportunity for international collaboration and networking among universities and institutions for promoting research and future technologies. This special issue endeavors to promote the translation of basic research into applied investigation and convert applied investigation into the practice.

Present electric grids are advanced to integrate smart grids, distributed resources, high-speed sensing and control, and other advanced metering technologies. Cybersecurity is one of the challenges of the smart grid and nuclear plant digital system. It affects the advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), for grid data communication and controls the information in real-time.



The objective of the special issue is to provide a platform to the domain researches on the design, development, programming, engineering, and management of the different applications for smart grid and communication technologies that involve large scale computation, complexity, methodologies, broad range of approaches, and techniques for specific application in real life.
