One of the most efficient ways of integrating a significant number of distributed generation (DG) into power systems is by using a micro grid (MG). The MG is a small distribution system consisting of DG, loads, and energy management systems (EMSs). MG operation, such as switching between grid-connected and islanded modes, enhances the distribution system's reliability, power quality, and efficiency. The difference between the MG operation and the conventional distribution system, however, raises several protection problems.
Because, in each scenario, the MG experiences a substantially different fault current as a result of bidirectional power flows, radial-loop switching between topologies, and various scenarios in the grid-tied and islanded mode for a similar fault location, protection schemes designed for traditional distribution systems cannot be implemented to the MG. The MG protection schemes have to deal with the issues mentioned above.
This Special Issue will help in the expansion of innovative technology for MG protection. Publication topics of concern include, but are not limited to, adaptive protection, intelligent fault detection, classification of faults, and islanding detection. For the advancement of MG protection technology, we welcome all papers linked to the subjects listed above. In addition, we would like to thank the readers and authors interested in this Special Issue.

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.
