Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Guest Editor is inviting submissions for a Special Issue of Energies on the subject area of “Emerging Power Electronics Technologies for Power Systems and Machine Drives”. Power Electronic technologies are found in wide range of power systems and machine drives. The application areas of power electronics are small and/or large capacities for electric circuits, e.g., high-voltage DC transmission systems, large capacity energy storage systems, electric vehicles, power conditioners for photovoltaic systems, ship and train traction systems, etc. The applications of power electronic circuits are now increasing throughout various aspects of our lives.

This Special Issue will focus on emerging power electronic topologies, and applications for power systems and motor drives. Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to:

• High voltage DC transmission systems;
• Novel renewable energy converter/inverter systems;
• Virtual synchronous generator;
• Electrical machines, drives, systems and applications;
• New topologies for high voltage inverter/converter;
• New applications for power electronics;
• Power electronics in smart grid;
• AC/DC converters and inverters;
• Control and optimization of power electronic circuit;
• Distributed generation for power electronics;
• Recent traction systems for vehicles, trains and ships;
• Demand side electrification and management of power electronics
