Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Natural disasters such as hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, and tornadoes, as well as cyber-attacks, cause severe damage to electric power system infrastructure, due to which unpredicted electricity blackouts happen for longer durations that may span several weeks. Such extreme events can be managed by designing resilient smart grid systems. Resilience is an integral part of electric power systems to provide continuous and reliable electric power supply to end users for achieving sustainable economic operation of the smart grid system. With the evolution and deployment of smart sensors along with advanced information and communication infrastructure, resilience can be effectively achieved in smart grid systems. These recent innovative developments have led to extensive research efforts to meet the demands for the development of resilience-efficient smart grid systems.

In this context, this Special Issue aims to be an open platform to share knowledge about progress and challenges in resilience-oriented smart grid systems against natural and cyber disasters. It particularly seeks original contributions regarding ideas, recent developments, or mature studies addressing both theoretical and experimental aspects.

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.
