Due to the integration of renewable energy resources, the electric power system is undergoing a significant change in terms of operation and planning. The advancement into a so-called smart grid by using advanced automation and control approaches produces new challenges but also opportunities. The aim of this Special Issue is therefore to tackle the ongoing changes and innovations in the domain of power and energy systems. We invite all papers with novel contributions to smart grids and future electrical networks with, but not limited to, the following topics:
- Advanced planning an operation concepts for power systems;
- Sophisticated microgrid concepts;
- Local energy communities;
- Hybrid energy network concepts;
- Integration of innovative power electronic devices;
- Cyber-physical power and energy systems principles;
- Power electronic dominated power grids;
- Impact of new technologies (e.g., big data, IoT) on power system operation and planning.

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.
