Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The present issue “Advanced Hybrid Algorithms in Energy Forecasting” focuses on energy (including load, energy price, wind speed, and other substitute energy demand) forecasting, which are the prime factors in modern restructured energy market by any novel advanced hybrid algorithm-based techniques to provide significant forecasting accuracy improvements (i.e., proved by statistical test). Advanced hybrid models in this issue is not only concentrated on hybrid evolutionary algorithms or hybrid chaos theory, fuzzy theory, cloud theory with evolutionary algorithms to determine suitable parameters for an existed model, but also on hybridization of two or above existed models, such as neuro-fuzzy model, BPNN-fuzzy model, and so on.
Papers are sought on recent novel ideas by hybridizing intelligent computation algorithms in all fields forecasting in energy sector: genetic algorithm, simulated annealing algorithm, particle swarm optimization, ant colony optimization, immune algorithm, artificial bee colony algorithm, chaotic mapping sequence (including logistic mapping, cat mapping, Tent mapping, and An mapping, etc.), cloud theory, fuzzy theory, artificial neural networks, recurrent mechanism, feed forward mechanism, back-propagation mechanism, seasonal mechanism, etc..
Manuscripts on power transmission design/prediction or IC treatments of economic dispatch scheduling are not targeted in this edition and should be submitted elsewhere.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Algorithms is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
