Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
This Special Issue will consist of selected papers from the 53rd International Universities Power Engineering Conference (UPEC2018), which will be held at Glasgow Caledonian University, Scotland, UK, 4th–7th September, 2018.
UPEC is a long-established conference, which is very popular with young researchers, PhD students and engineers from the electrical power industry. The aim of the conference is to allow participants to exchange experiences and discuss the most up-to-date topics in power engineering.
The global energy challenges, the ageing of electrical networks in industrial countries, and the extension of the grid system in developing countries require significant research input in the area. UPEC is an ideal forum to address some of these issues, and to network and meet with talented engineers and innovators in these areas.
The subject areas covered include, but are not restricted to:
- Power Systems Operations and Control
- Distributed Generations
- Renewable Energy Systems
- Power Systems Simulation and Analysis
- Smart Grids
- Integration of Renewable Sources
- Power Quality
- Electricity Markets
- Protection Systems
- Electromagnetics and Electrostatics
- Reliability Analysis
- HVDC, FACTS and Power Electronics
- ICT for Future Electricity Grids
- High Voltage Engineering
- Electrical Machines and Drives
- Electric Vehicles and Transport
- Condition Monitoring and Diagnostics
- Electrical Services for Buildings
- Transient Analysis and EMTP Modelling
- Power Engineering Education
- Energy Storage
