Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are inviting submissions to Special Issue of Energies on the subject of “Power Grid on Energy Great Transition with High Penetration of Renewable Energies”. Many countries around the world are planning to increase the generation dependency on renewable energy sources from 20% up to even 50% in next two decades. In other words, we will be experiencing the power grid on energy great transition with the high penetration of renewable energies in near future. To achieve this goal, the innovative and effective methodologies for control, operation, and planning of that power grid are significantly required while dealing with the uncertainty and variability of renewable energies. The objective of this Special Issue is to address, discuss, and present the novel theories, methods, and applications to the power grid on energy great transition. Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Methods to obtain the grid-connected flexibility and maximize the allowable capacity
  • New system structures with interconnection of AC and DC
  • Smart inverter and active distribution system
  • Applications of FACTS and HVDC
  • Short-term and long-term planning of power system with the high penetration of renewable energies
  • Cooperative operation and energy management of transmission and distribution systems
  • Converter-level and plant-level controls of wind power and photovoltaic generations
  • Short-term and long-term grid-level cooperative control for different types of power plants
  • Control and operation to obtain the proper power reserves
  • Improvement of stability with respect to frequency and voltage of system
  • Real-time fast state estimation algorithms
  • Estimation of net-load
  • Forecasting of wind power and photovoltaic generations
  • Effective dynamic simulation methods and modeling

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.
