The role of renewable energy sources in the power system is growing fast due to its contributions to reducing the greenhouse gas emissions, promoting long-term energy security, and thr expansion of energy access to new energy consumers in the developing world. However, the high penetration of renewable energy sources remains a challenge in electricity networks. Their stochastic behavior and variable output impose real-time balancing challenges in the power system, which makes it necessary to increase the power reserves provided by conventional power stations. In addition, these energy sources used to be connected to the power grids by means of power electronics converters, which in contrast to synchronous generators do not inherently stabilize the power system. This Special Issue deals with the operation and control of interfaced converters between renewable energy resources and power grids to guarantee the stability of power grids under the high penetration of renewable energy resources.

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.
