Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Electrical power and energy systems are facing challenges and transformations as smart grid is implemented. Improved design solutions, better control, and efficient management of systems are essential to maintain reliability and continuity of power supply in systems where customers are participating, affecting bi-directional power flow where immediate balancing of demand and supply needs to be met from the perspective of stability of the systems. Real-time exchange of information becomes inevitable when integrating modern technologies, controls, and their operation in a sustainable manner in this regard. Above all, smart protections are necessary for all systems and equipment.

This Special Issue aims to present and disseminate the most recent advances related to theoretical aspects, designs, modeling, applications, control, and operation of energy systems from the perspective of smart grid.

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. Energies 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 2600 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.
