Many countries are currently facing increasingly severe challenges, such as resource depletion, environmental pollution, and climate change. Responding to these challenges, increasing the proportion of renewable energy utilization, and practicing low-carbon development have become the focus of global attention and the consensus of countries in the world for sustainable development. Power electronics technology has achieved considerable progress after several decades of the dynamic evolution of power semiconductor devices, converters, pulse width modulation (PWM) techniques, electrical machines, motor drives, advanced control, and simulation techniques. Among all renewables, wind and photovoltaic energy are particularly important and dependent on power electronics. The integration of a high proportion of renewable energy, however, will face a series of technical challenges, and the application of power electrics technology can solve certain parts of these problems. However, critical issues have not yet been handled, such as the comprehensive analysis, design, and reliability evaluation methods of high-capacity power electronic devices. In addition, existing designs often rely on high-cost excess margins in exchange for operational security and reliability.
This Special Issue aims to foster novel, safe, and economic approaches to the application of electronics technology in energy systems. We need to not only solve the problems concerning power electronics technology itself, but also actively cooperate to solve other interdisciplinary problems in energy systems. The topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Advanced power semiconductors
- Distributed generation, fuel cells, and renewable energy systems
- Electric drivers and application
- Electric vehicle technologies
- Electrical machines, power electronics, and industry applications
- Electrical materials and processes
- Electronic materials
- Electronics, information, and control systems
- Inverter and converter technology
- Power electronics and power drives
- Power generation and sustainable environment
- Renewable energy, including wind, solar, and wave, etc.
- Power electronics in automotive, traction, and aerospace
- Wide band gap semiconductor devices
- Medical and rehabilitation power electronics
- Environmental protection and alternative energy
- Control techniques for power converters
- Railway systems and transportation
- Analysis of a power-electronics-based power system
- Control techniques of power electronic devices
- Ac, dc, and hybrid microgrids

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 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.
