Modern distribution systems are facing increasing challenges, such as the volatility of renewable energy resources, the vulnerability of network topologies and the uncertainty of load demands. Distribution systems are tightly integrated with information and communication technologies, which have evolved into cyber-physical distribution systems (CPDS). Even though these technologies advance and optimize the operation of the electric power grid significantly, distribution systems, subject to complex cyber-physical interdependencies, are highly vulnerable to various risks. These risks caused by cyber systems can affect and even degrade system performance in terms of efficiency, security, safety, stability, and privacy. Hence, it should be emphasized that cyber systems and physical distribution networks should be equally important in CPDS, while traditional distribution systems are more concerned about physical distribution grids.
This Special Issue focuses on the advances in CPDS. We encourage the contribution of original papers on risk assessment, cyber-physical modeling and design, system planning, cybersecurity and privacy, cyberattack mitigation, stability analysis, and resilience in CPDS. We also welcome original research on innovative technologies and interdisciplinary study, e.g., artificial intelligence, new applications and new viewpoints in CPDS.

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2400 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.
