Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Guest Editors are inviting submissions for a Special Issue of Energies on the subject area of “Energy processing and Smart Grid.” The interdisciplinary applications with the involvement of several combined forces have led to the transformation of a traditional power system into a smarter domain. Such an empowerment of a traditional power system has become the need of the hour. The smart grid involves multidisciplinary domains that includes renewables and EVs, intelligent power electronics, intelligent decision and control systems, smart communication systems, computational intelligence, visual and data analytics, cyber security, intelligent measurements, and many more reliable aspects associated with the power system network.

This Special Issue focuses on the technological advancements in a smart grid environment that includes all applications of power systems and power electronics.

Topics of interest for publication include but are not limited to:

  • Technological advancements in all domains of power systems and power electronics;
  • Smart grid;
  • Electric machines and drives;
  • Transmission and distribution;
  • Renewable energy systems;
  • Electric vehicles (V2G and G2V);
  • Power-electronics based distributed generators;
  • HVDC and FACTS devices;
  • AC and DC microgrid systems;
  • Artificial intelligence, machine learning, and IoT in power systems and power electronics;
  • Power electronics in smart grid;
  • Smart inverters;
  • Digital signal processing in energy systems;
  • Power electronic converters;
  • Power quality;
  • Topologies and control of power electronic converters;
  • Energy storage technologies;
  • Power semiconductor devices;
  • Electric/hybrid vehicle converters and other transportation systems;
  • Industrial, commercial, and residential applications of power converters;
  • Multilevel converters;
  • Power electronics applications in power systems;
  • Control applications in power systems and power electronics.
