Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Energy management systems (EMSs) are responsible for delivering an optimal energy scheduling strategy in day-ahead and real-time power markets. An energy management system supports a reliable power grid, maximizes the penetration of renewable energy, and optimizes the cost and economic efficiency associated with the electricity market. To achieve both economic and environmental benefits, EMSs are used to solve dispatch optimization problems for the available production and storage capacity given the market data, real-time state, and operational constraints of the power grid, production, and consumption forecasting information. However, the intermittency and uncertainties caused by the high penetration of renewables and flexible loads pose critical challenge to EMSs.

The aim of this Special Issue is to present the emerging techniques and latest results of EMSs in modern power systems, laying the foundation for future hybrid electrified systems with renewable energies. Presentations and research papers are welcome to be submitted, and the topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Optimal operation and control strategies for enhancing power system flexibility;
  • Renewable generation and integration techniques in distributed microgrids;
  • Energy storage techniques in electrified power systems;
  • Energy management and economic operation of distributed microgrids;
  • Resilience and security techniques for multi-energy systems;
  • Coordinated operation and communication for transportation electrification systems;
  • Energy routers and power converter topology and design;
  • Advanced controller design for electrified transportation systems;
  • Intelligent algorithms for multi-energy systems;
  • AI techniques and application in EMS;
  • Digital control techniques in power systems;
  • Real-time simulation testing for electrified transportation systems.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Sustainability 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.
