Increasing penetration of renewable energy sources, such as photovoltaics and wind power generation, raises concerns regarding their impacts on a power system. Although wind and solar power generation can reduce peak load demand and losses in a distribution circuit, these renewable energy sources may cause power quality and protection issues in a circuit, such as voltage regulation, flicker, short-circuit current contribution, and protection coordination. Additional equipment, such as capacitor banks, voltage regulators, static var compensators (SVCs), static synchronous compensators (STATCOMs), and energy storage systems, may be required to provide enhanced voltage regulation. New protection schemes may be developed to mitigate protection issues. This Special Issue of Inventions will include (but is not limited to) the following topics of interest:
- Advances in technologies of renewable energy systems, voltage regulating devices, and energy storage system
- Modeling and simulation of renewable energy systems for load flow, dynamic stability, and electromagnetic transient studies
- Operation and control strategies for renewable energy systems
- Forecasting wind and solar power generation
- Impacts of renewable energy systems including voltage regulation, short-circuit contribution, protection coordination, harmonic distortion, and frequency response
- Maximum capacity of renewable energy systems that can be integrated into a power system
- Mitigating the impacts of high penetration of renewable energy systems with the help of control of renewable energy sources, voltage regulating devices, energy storage system, and distributed energy resource management systems (DERMS)
- Cost of increasing the renewable energy penetration in a power system
- Optimal placement and sizing of renewable energy sources, voltage regulating devices, and energy storage systems for conservation voltage reduction (CVR), voltage regulation, and loss minimization
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 papers will be 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. Inventions 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) is waived for well-prepared manuscripts submitted to this issue. 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.
