Special Issue "Power Quality: Monitoring, Mitigation, and New Types of Disturbances"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2019).
Interests: power quality; harmonics and supraharmonic; lighting
The term “power quality” has been around for some 50 years now, but the subjects covered by the term have never been static: Changing through the years from harmonics to flicker to voltage dips back to harmonics; with parallel issues appearing and disappearing as well.
Several developments in the electric power system and outside of it make that power quality is as important as ever. Like with earlier revivals, new issues have come to the forefront. The two most important developments that have an impact on power quality are:
- The transition to a sustainable energy system, where one should not just think of wind power and electric vehicles, but also of more energy-efficient equipment. New types of equipment connected to the electricity grid affect the classical disturbances like harmonics and voltage variations. Such equipment also has shown to introduce new types of disturbances, which remain poorly understood, and some of which may not even have been discovered.
- The possibility of obtaining huge amounts of power-quality data, which calls for methods to extract, automatically and effectively, information from this data. Data-processing power and tools are available, but finding the right tool for the right application remains a big challenge.
We are calling for original contributions that cover the power-quality consequences for one or both of these developments. This includes problem descriptions, new algorithms, measurements and simulations, practical case studies, and mitigation methods.

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.
