Special Issue "Applications of Power Electronic Circuits and Systems for Future Grid"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2020).
Interests: power electronic circuits and systems for aerospace, electric vehicles, smart grids, microgrids and sustainability
Long-term environmental concerns, population growth, and increased energy demand urge the development of clean and green energy-based power generation. Power electronics plays a vital role in integrating various renewable energy resources to the grid to meet the current energy crisis. Solar and wind are the fastest growing source of renewable energy. The grid should be able to accommodate such renewables without losing its reliability and robustness. The smart grid is an enhanced version of the conventional electricity grid which enables energy security, reliability and integration of various renewable energy resources. Therefore, the future smart grid will pave the way for CO2 reduction and clean energy deployment.
This Special Issue will focus on recent trends and innovation in technologies integrating rooftop PV, floating PV and onshore and offshore wind farms, energy storage systems, novel concepts, fault ride through, state-of-the-art and fault-tolerant converters, smart inverters, electric vehicle charging, microgrid, distributed energy resource control and integration, smart grid, high performance and high power density converters for energy efficient systems for future power systems.

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. Electronics 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.
