Special Issue "Advancing Grid-Connected Renewable Generation Systems"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (10 December 2016)
Renewables are evolving into an essential component for today’s energy paradigm, which has been undergoing significant shifts over the past few decades—from fossil fuels to renewables, from centralized to decentralized architectures, and from sole to miscellaneous energy resources. In this energy evolution, power electronics technology underpinned by advanced control strategies plays an enabling role in the integration and advancements of renewables, like wind turbine, photovoltaics, fuel cells, and other emerging energy systems. Tremendous application-driven power converters and control techniques for grid-connected renewables have been developed and more are coming into market to secure an efficient and reliable renewable power generation. Stringent demands from both utility operators and consumers have also been (are being) imposed on. This Special Issue, thus, serves to address present challenging issues with the integration of renewable energies in a sustainable and resilient power system. Topics within, but not limited to, grid-connected renewable energy systems are invited.

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 monthly 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 1400 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.
