Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Due to decreasing fossil resources and environmental friendliness, innovative methods in renewable energy generation and utilization are rapidly becoming attractive. Electrical drives and power electronics are one of the most critical components of modern applications of renewable energy systems. The robustness of machines and the increased efficiency of power semiconductor devices enable the improvement of many types of power conversion and generation. Thus, this Special Issue aims to present and disseminate recent advances related to the theory, design, modelling, application, control, and reviews related to the advancement of power electronics in renewable energy, power quality, and electrical drives.

The authors are invited to submit their original work and survey papers for publication in this Special Issue of Energies. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Advanced control strategies for electrical machines in renewable energy applications;
  • Emerging power electronics for electric drives in renewable energy applications;
  • Application of power electronic converters in wind and solar systems;
  • Energy storage for renewable energy applications;
  • Advanced current and voltage controller’s technology for power converter;
  • Novel AC/AC, DC/AC, AC/DC, DC/DC converter topologies, including their control techniques;
  • Multilevel converter topologies and control;
  • Artificial intelligence techniques in smart grid and renewable energy systems;
  • Evolutionary and heuristic optimization techniques in renewable energy systems
  • Smart grid modelling and simulation;
  • Controls for smart grids: architectures and applications;
  • PV water pumping system;
  • Robotic power electronics;
  • Electric vehicles;
  • Fault-tolerant methods in power electronic converter systems.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2200 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.
