At present, variable renewable energy (VRE) generation is becoming of key importance due to the relevant impact on power systems. Specifically, wind and solar PV power modeling should be addressed due to the importance in the energy mix of actual and future power systems. Modeling issues could address real time and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulations, too.
This Special Issue aims to present solutions facing the challenges related to VRE modeling, specifically wind and solar PV generation. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Detailed VRE modeling (wind turbines, wind power plants, and solar PV power plants) for accurate response and design purposes;
- Simplified VRE modeling (wind turbines, wind power plants, and solar PV power plants) with application to power system studies; model assessment according to national and international standards, such as IEC 61400-27 or WECC;
- Modeling of new control strategies for wind power plants and solar PV power plants;
- Modeling of power system operation with large amounts of wind and solar power, including transnational or intercontinental studies; transient stability studies;
- Modeling of transmission planning and operation, taking into account VRE resource location and characteristics;
- Grid support and ancillary services provided by wind and solar PV generation; grid code requirements;
- Modeling of efficient electricity markets with large amounts of VREs;
- Model validation.

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 2000 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.
