Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will consist of selected papers from the 54th International Universities Power Engineering Conference (UPEC2019), which will be held at the University POLITECHNICA of Bucharest, Romania, 3–6 September 2019.
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 challenges for the energy sector, the advent of new technologies and the need for an overhaul of electrical networks, combined with the expansion of electric power systems and environmental constraints are ever-present themes for mature reflection and advanced research. UPEC is an ideal platform to address some of these issues, and to provide a networking and meeting ground for young engineers, respected academic professionals and innovators in these areas.
The scope of this Special Issue is to provide a significant contribution beyond the current state-of-the-art with respect to electrical power systems. The solutions area ranges from power systems operations and control, to smart grids, energy supply, electricity markets and power engineering education. This Special Issue particularly welcomes UPEC papers that address the power system from an interdisciplinary point of view, which transcends traditional approaches and analysis of single issues, and instead address the power system in a holistic manner.

More information about UPEC2019 can be found at: www.upec2019.com.

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.
