Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Microgrid can play a significant role in managing and controlling distributed and renewable-based generators and overcoming associated grid integration challenges. Different microgrid structures such as DC microgrid, AC microgrid, hybrid AC/DC microgrid, and control techniques will be implemented for smooth and reliable operation of microgrid, and new developments are required to solve several issues and challenges mainly related to design, control, power management, protection, stability, power quality and harmonics, and cyber security. The purpose of this Special Issue is to address and disseminate state-of-the-art research in microgrids by academics, industries, and research organizations. This Special Issue will bring together recent advances in microgrid and will offer a major forum for reporting advances in microgrid research and associated technologies to uptake renewable-based generation. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

  • Recent advancement in microgrids and emerging microgrid technologies;
  • Microgrid structures and configurations, Design of microgrid;
  • Power electronic converters for microgrid:
    • DC to DC, AC–DC, and DC–AC converter topologies;
    • Bidirectional converter topologies for energy storage integration;
    • Multilevel converter;
    • Grid-forming smart inverter;
  • Advanced control and energy management of DC, AC, hybrid AC/DC microgrids:
    • Model predictive control of microgrid;
    • Advanced control of wind energy system, solar PV, and energy storage system;
    • Advanced control techniques for seamless transition from off-grid to on-grid modes of operation;
    • Distributed/decentralized secondary control for voltage and frequency restoration;
    • Energy management algorithm for microgrids;
  • Microgrid integration and their impact on the distribution grid:
    • Voltage regulation, system inertia and frequency regulation, distribution grid stability;
    • Power quality and harmonics;
    • Islanding detection and synchronization of microgrid;
    • Microgrid protection;
  • Energy storage for microgrid:
    • Battery energy storage;
    • Supercapacitor energy storage;
    • Energy storage for ancillary services;
  • Integration of electric vehicles in microgrids and vehicle-to- grid (V2G) and grid-to-vehicle (G2V) operation;
  • Cyber security of microgrid.

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 1500 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.
