In the last years, decarbonization, decentralization and digitalization have become topical issues for electrical power system research in the new century.
The wide use of ICT and distributed generators has brought many significant changes to electrical power systems, introducing new issues to be faced by end-users.
In particular, power distribution systems are constantly required to become smarter and more interactive and sustainable systems, managed by intelligent devices that allow the participation of prosumers in the energy share.
This ongoing evolution poses new challenges regarding system stability, regulation and control.
In this context, we encourage all researchers from relevant domains to submit papers to this Special Issue on the “Operation and Control of Power Distribution Systems”. Contributions are welcome on, but not limited to, the following themes:
- Operation and control of power distribution systems;
- Stability issues of isolated microgrids;
- Virtual inertia and enhanced frequency response;
- Impact of BAC and TBM systems on distribution systems;
- Demand response and transactive energy;
- ICT for smart grids;
- Participation of distributed generators and storage systems for frequency regulation;
- Customer power devices for distribution grid regulation;
- Participation of active end-users in the balancing market.

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.
