Renewable energy is a promising energy source in order not to have emission of carbon dioxide at the time of power generation. Although renewable energy is mainly exploited photovoltaic energy or wind energy, however it changes by climate conditions, stabilization of electric power is needed. The smart grid attracts attention as research on stabilization and effective use of renewable energy in recent years, and research on a smart grid is advanced in the world. As core technology of smart grid, power electronics, optimization technology, demand response, smart meter, large storage battery, cooperative control, etc. are needed, and it is technology indispensable to large-scale introduction of renewable energy. In this special issue, the contribution of the paper about the circumference technology for large-scale introduction of renewable energy is expected broadly.

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. 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 monthly journal published by MDPI.
