The planned transition from fossil fuel-based power generation to renewables-based power generation is a burdensome challenge for the power system operators as regards the estimation and scheduling of the power balancing and frequency control resources in interconnected power systems. Currently, the frequency control and stability are ensured by predictable synchronous generators, inherited with mechanical inertia. While the turbogenerators, which are driven by large steam or gas turbines, are the best in providing frequency containment (fast frequency response), the hydraulic power plants are more appropriate for both automatic and manual frequency restoration.
With an increased share of generation from renewable energy sources, the natural inertia is reduced. Under these conditions, new solutions are sought for frequency control and stability. The new solutions may involve more advanced frequency measurement and calculation equipment, communication infrastructure, control techniques and strategies. Some topics covered in this Special Issue are:
- Adapted strategies of the hierarchical frequency control
- New solutions for TSO-DSO interaction for active power balancing and frequency control
- The role of energy storage systems in the frequency control and stability
- PMU-based frequency monitoring and control
- Evaluation of the minimum mechanical and synthetic inertia required to support system stability
- Integration of virtual power plants and microgrids in the frequency control schemes
- Real-time monitoring of mechanical and synthetic inertia
- Adapting the ancillary services and balancing markets to deal within the future power generation context
- Control schemes of wind and photovoltaic systems
You are kindly invited to submit your relevant work in the field of “Frequency Stability and Control in Future Power Systems” to be published in this special edition of the Energies journal.

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.
