In light of dramatic structural changes on future power systems and several major challenges for accurate representation of power systems and computational efficiency in academic and industry community. On Friday, 26th June 2015 was held in Delft University of Technology the 1st Symposium on Modelling and Simulation Challenges for Future Sustainable Energy Systems. The primary aim of the symposium was to share knowledge and vision of forthcoming modelling and simulation techniques for future energy systems. Dr. Jose Luis Rueda Torres, TU Delft (Netherlands), chaired the symposium along with Dr. F. Gonzalez-Longatt, Loughborough University (United Kingdom). The The IEEE Student Branch at TU Delft, in association with IEPG and IEEE Benelux (PES) provided extremely good support on the symposium organizations. The atmosphere was appropriate to review and define the major challenges of modelling and simulations in future power systems. Speaker of the most important Universities in the World (KU Leuven, TU Delft, The University of Manchester, Universität Duisburg-Essen, and Loughborough University) and the special participacion of DIgSILENT PowerFactory were involved in this one day symposium. Also, the book “PowerFactory for Power Systems Applications” Book was publically presented and launched. New edition of this symposium is expected in June 2016.
