We are inviting submissions for a Special Issue of Energies on the subject area of "New topologies of voltage source converters and current source converters for integration of fast EV charging stations within smart grids". Over the past few years, the integration of the fast EV charging stations have been increased rapidly in the low-voltage (LV) distribution networks. The desired features of power electronic converters interfacing fast EV charging stations to LV grids include: being compact, reliable, and efficient, having a fast transient response, low-device stress, low-voltage distortion, being stable, characterizing reliable power transfer with low noise and reduced electromagnetic interference (EMI). This Special Issue will focus on voltage source converters and current source converters for integration of fast EV charging stations within smart grids. Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to:
- wide bandgap (WBG) semiconductor voltage source and current source converters for integration of fast EV charging stations within smart grids,
- power electronic voltage regulators (PEVR) for LV and MV grids with a high penetration of fast EV charging stations,
- modulation strategies and EMC design for mitigation of common mode (CM) currents/electromagnetic interference (EMI) of power electronic converters interfacing fast EV charging stations with LV and MV grids,
- cooperation of fast EV charging stations with renewable energy sources and energy storages.

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.
