Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 7th International Conference on Smart Energy Grid Engineering (SEGE 2019) (http://www.sege-conference.com/) will take place at UOIT, Oshawa, Canada, 12–14 August 2019.

The SEGE conference aims at providing an opportunity to discuss various engineering challenges of smart energy grid design and operation by focusing on advanced methods and practices for designing different components and their integration within the grid. It also provides a forum for researchers from academia and professionals from industry, as well as government regulators, to tackle these challenges and discuss and exchange knowledge and best practices about design and the implementation of smart energy grids.

The Symposium on Plasma and Nuclear Systems (SPANS 2019) is connected with SEGE 2019 and will be held on 15 August 2019.

SPANS is providing a forum for researchers from academia and industry to present and discuss the latest research innovations in nuclear and plasma systems. SPANS will provide attendees with state-of-the-art research and technologies and engage in active discussions with industry. Additionally, it will provide industry with opportunities to promote their products and business cases. Attendees from regulators and standards will engage in fruitful discussions on how R&D is linked with regulations and standards.

Authors of papers related to energies presented at the conferences are invited to submit extended versions of their work to the Special Issue for publication.

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).

This paper presents a theoretical analysis and experimental study on the resonant network of the power conditioning system (PCS) for a plasma generator. In order to consider the characteristics of the plasma load, the resonant network of the DC-AC inverter is designed and analyzed. Specifically, the design of an LCL resonant network and an LCCL resonant network, which can satisfy the output current specification in consideration of plasma characteristics, is explained in detail. Moreover, the inverter current and phase angle between the inverter voltage and current is derived for evaluating inverter performance. Based on these analysis results, the DC-AC inverter can be designed for a plasma generator considering plasma load characteristics. The theoretical analysis of both networks is validated through the simulation and experimental results. Full article
