Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The new Electric Power Network began to be structured with the emergence of Distributed Generations (DGs) System, where the Power Electronics area plays a crucial role in its development.

The introduction of DGs inserted renewable energy into Electric Power Network, particularly solar photovoltaic and wind energy. From the design of the DGs, microgrids emerged, which added energy storage systems to the DGs, through batteries, supercapacitors and flywheels. This set of systems formed by power electronics inverters, energy storage and adequate control gave rise to Active Electrical Distribution Networks. The various microgrids interconnected to the Active Electrical Distribution Networks, managed from a specific control system, with communication between the various electrical networks of the system, gave rise to the Intelligent Electrical Networks, known in the international literature as Smart Grids, that represent the Future of the Electric Power Network.

This Special Issue is dedicated to attract the new perspectives and latest results in high performance Power Electronics Topologies and Control Strategies applied to the Electric Power Network. Researchers are invited to present their research including, but not limited, to: power electronics topologies, future development of HVDC & FACTS, control of grid-connected networks, operation in islanded mode, active and reactive power control, AC-DC microgrid, LCL filters, storage systems, stability analysis in power electronics level.

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.
