The grid integration of decentralized generation plants enables a decarbonization process and brings a new mix of generation types with different grid interfaces in the electrical power system. For the grid integration of decentralized generation units, either their power electronic or direct grid interfaces must provide system services to ensure a safe and reliable grid operation. This Special Issue focuses on the analysis, design, and implementation of grid integration, grid services, grid compatibility, grid-support and grid-forming properties of decentralized generation plants.
The subject areas of interest include, but are not limited to grid integration, power quality, grid services, grid compatibility, grid-support, and grid-forming properties as well as smart grid applications of power systems with the following:
- Wind energy
- Fuel cells
- Energy storage
- Microgrids in grid connection
- Heat and power plants

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. Electronics 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.
