Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The integration of intermittent renewable energy sources (such as solar and wind) into microgrids requires the use of power electronic converters with sophisticated controllers to maximise their energy recuperation. There are major problems with the use of such power electronic converters. They have limited thermal ratings and contribute little, if any, rotational inertia to the microgrids that they are connected to. The lack of injected rotational enertia makes these microgrids particularly vulnerable to instability issues. Special protection and control strategies are therefore needed to efficiently and fully utilize such converters in the integration of intermittent renewable energy sources. These power electronic converters can have the role of either grid following or grid forming. Modern control techniques can enable these converters to provide virtual inertia to overcome instability issues. This Special Issue will deal with many of these topics.

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.
