Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a dynamic topic of research and development in a wide range of fields. Electric power system is no different. This special session is dedicated to the advances of AI techniques applied in this engineering domain. We expect contributions that apply recent advances of AI for tasks related to classification, detection, prediction, diagnosis, analytics, control, planning and management of processes in power systems. Papers dealing with emerging topics such as explainable AI (XAI), deep learning (DL), cyber-security, event-driven/triggered approaches, communication-dependent solutions with low latency enabled by 5G/IoT/edge-computing and software-defined networks are especially welcome. Application domains can range from nano/micro-grids to high-voltage systems, including also topics related to investment plan, demand dispatching, load flexibility, distributed energy resource management and long-term energy storage. In general, all topics that apply cutting-edge AI technologies in electric power systems are equally supported.

We expect to have a session with high-quality publications that Energies readers will enjoy and learn more about the state-of-the-art in the field to move beyond it. We are very happy to answer specific questions of prospective authors.

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. Energies 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.
