Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

To get the low-carbon energy infrastructure, tremendous renewable energy sources are integrated into the modern power grid while reducing conventional fossil power plants. In this transition, the power electronics system acts as one of the most important role players, which can convert renewable energies to electrical energy. Due to the recent development of power electronics technology and its control, renewable energy supports more efficient, economical, and reliable power than ever before.

Recently, various loads (e.g., electrical vehicle, data center, and motor) have been connected to the grid based on power electronics. With the high-penetration level of power electronics in the power grid, more and more issues are to be challenged, such as performance deterioration, efficiency decrease, and power quality reduction, as well as instability phenomena. Herein, this Special Issue focuses on recent advances and challenges in power electronics for renewable energy sources integrated into the power grid.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2200 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.
