Special Issue "Artificial Intelligence Technologies for Electric Power Systems"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2020.
Interests: electricity generation and consumption forecasting; load profiling, electricity market analysis and simulation; smart grid design and optimization; power system stability
Climate change mitigation and environmental protection are two of the most important priorities of the moment. To achieve these goals, transforming the energy sector into a less polluting and more efficient industry is one of the most efficient tools. Indeed, today’s energy industry is becoming smarter. Thus, what is known today as Smart Grid means power generation from renewable sources, mainly wind and solar, the integration of distributed generation systems and energy storage systems, the improvement of control devices and the development of active electrical networks based on flexibility and intelligent control.
Artificial intelligence technologies, whose bases were laid in the 1940s, are today experiencing an impressive evolution, and their integration into the power industry is an unquestionable must. Predicting electricity consumption and generation using artificial neural networks, identifying consumer categories based on clustering and self-organizing techniques, optimizing the design and operation of transmission and distribution networks using metaheuristics or the intelligent control of automation and protection systems based on fuzzy logic and fuzzy techniques are just a few examples of applications of artificial intelligence techniques in power systems.
This Special Issue welcomes original contributions in the application of artificial intelligence in power systems or other related fields.

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.
