Special Issue in Energies: State-of-the-Art Artificial Intelligence Models for PV Fault Detection
Cutting-edge IoT-based monitoring units and globalized protocols can considerably improve the quality of operation of photovoltaics (PV) systems. Extracting useful data of PV systems can improve the reliability, durability, and lifetime performance through enhanced data analytics tools, degradation estimation procedures, and early-stage fault detection. Therefore, the aim of this Special Issue is to solicit original and high-quality research articles related to the aforementioned topics. In particular, topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- IoT-based monitoring of photovoltaic systems;
- Data analytics tools for PV systems performance analysis;
- Reliability and durability metrics for PV systems;
- PV fault detection (AI-based and mathematical methods);
- Degradation of PV modules;
- Power electronics reliability associated with PV systems integration.

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 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.
