In recent years, clean and renewable energy has been growing rapidly, and the penetration level of renewable energy into the power system has been continuously increasing. Its high penetration into the power system has reduced power generation costs and provided more environmental benefits. However, the intermittent, stochastic, and fluctuant nature of renewable energy brings great challenges to the power grid in terms of system planning, operation, and control. Therefore, more attempts should be made to enhance integration, focusing on power forecasting, power system planning, optimal operation, energy transmission, energy storage, and operating control.
The mixed power grid with massive renewable energy is becoming more complicated. Potential emerging issues include system-coordinated planning, optimal operation, stability, control, and information and communication technology (ICT). Thus, this Special Issue is dedicated to collecting recent research to address the above issues. More specifically, it is expected to put forward advanced theories and technologies with a rapid development of renewable energy, to address the associated integration issues, and to fully utilize renewables, in which a safe, stable, and efficient operation of the mixed power system should be ensured.
Papers in the relevant area of Planning, Operation, and Control of Power Systems with Large-Scale Renewable Energy, including but not limited to the following, are invited:
- Issues of high-penetration renewable energy systems
- The modeling and characterization of renewable energy systems
- Power forecasting of the renewable-energy, integrated power-system
- Transmission and distribution network planning with renewable energy
- Renewable energy transmission and energy storage
- Optimal operation of power systems with renewable energies
- Grid regulation with large-scale renewable energies
- Control of grid-connected renewable energy systems
- Renewable-energy “power-electronized” power systems
- Stability assessment of hybrid grid
- Operation of ICT-based power-electronics-dominant electric grid

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 1800 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.
