Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Photovoltaic generation is one of the most promising renewable energy utilization methods in the world. It makes photovoltaic power generation become highly potential, with recent developments in technologies such as photovoltaic panels, energy conversion system, power electronics, energy storage system, and control system. As most of these technologies are developed in each respective research community, researchers devoted to photovoltaic generation seek state of the art of these wide research areas. This special issue aims to cover the advances in all the above photovoltaic generation-related technologies and related research fields, such as power system, power electronics, system control, physical science and chemistry.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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 quarterly 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 300 CHF (Swiss Francs). English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
