Special Issue in Energies: Charging/Discharging Electric Vehicles via Microgrids Including Vehicle-to-Grid Technology
The smart grid implementation is facilitated by microgrids development. Microgrids are considered the main smart grid building blocks. Whether they are AC or DC, high voltage or low voltage, high power or small power, or integrated into the distribution system or the transmission network, microgrids always require an intelligent energy management that is integrated in the power system. A comprehensive intelligent energy system is aimed at providing overall energy efficiency with regard to the following: increased power generation flexibility, improved energy consumption, reduced CO2 emission, improved stability, and minimized energy cost. This Special Issue focuses on recent key theoretical and practical developments that concern the models, technologies, and flexible solutions to facilitate the following optimal energy and power flow strategies: the techno-economic model for optimal sources dispatching (mono and multi-objective energy optimization), real-time optimal scheduling, and real time optimization with model predictive control. Special interest is given to intelligent energy management design, methodology, control principles, possible industrial applications, and techno-economic and social acceptability coupling (taking into account the human, societal, and economic factors in all design processes).

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. Applied Sciences 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 2000 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.
