Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the last few years, a growing number of scientific papers has appeared in the literature on computational intelligence (CI) applied to photovoltaic (PV) systems. CI can be profitably used to carry out the following tasks in PV applications: modeling, sizing and control of stand-alone and grid-connected PV systems, centralized maximum power point tracking (MPPT), distributed MPPT, PV arrays reconfiguration, storage sizing, control optimization, detection of mismatching operating conditions, fault diagnosis, maintenance programming, prediction and modeling of solar radiation, and output power plants forecast of PV systems. This Special Issue aims to do the following:

  • focus on the latest theoretical studies, numerical algorithms, scientific results, and applications of CI in PV systems
  • bring together scientists adopting several approaches and working on the above topics
  • promote and share as much as possible top-level research in the field of CI in PV systems

This Special Issue is open to both original research articles and review articles covering, but not limited to, these topics:

  • maximum power point tracking techniques
  • forecasting techniques
  • sizing and optimization of PV components and systems
  • PV modelling
  • reconfiguration algorithms
  • faults diagnosis
  • mismatching detection
  • decision processes for grid operators

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 2000 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.
