In the past decade, we have witnessed intensive development and changes in the field of electric power systems. The changes are visible at all three of the following levels: in electricity generation, in transmission, and consumption. They are related to increasing the shares of renewable sources in production and electric vehicles through consumption, lowering prices, and increasing the capacity of electronic components and batteries, as well as the implementation of information technology in power system operations. Some of the consequences of the new situation are the changes in and the introduction of additional control systems in power systems. The changes are inevitable due to the altered modes of operation of the power systems, reaching novel and strict requirements for transmission system operators, open transmission access, environmental constraints, and increased competitiveness.
The changes and introduction of additional control systems can influence the characteristics of the power system, reduce its damping, and can lead to an instability of the power system. The consequences of elevated stability problems are observed clearly in the increasing number of significant power system blackouts in recent years.
It is, therefore, crucial that those involved in working in the field of power system control have enough state-of-the-art knowledge, and that they have access to the experiences gained by engineers in other power systems. This is also the purpose of this Special Issue—that engineers and academics who have reported new knowledge and findings while working in the field of power system control also transfer them to others. The area of interest for this Special Issue is vast. We expect contributions from the fields of the modeling, analysis, simulations, control, and optimization of both individual components and entire power systems.

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.
