Distributed automation architectures are the basis of modern power grids, both at transmission, as well as at distribution, levels. Distributed systems require a pervasive communication infrastructure, covering the entire power grid, from transformer substations down to the end-customer. The integration of automation and communication infrastructure with a power grid is known in the literature as a Smart Grid. The increasing diffusion of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) and electric vehicles requires the deployment of systems for the scheduling and management of energy. Optimal management of the grid requires the adoption of distributed measurement systems, such as power quality meters and phasor measurement units, able to transfer, in real-time, measurement information to the Distribution System Operator (DSO) control center.The aim of this Special Issue is to investigate emerging technologies, which are required in the design and implementation of Smart Grids. This issue welcomes theoretical papers, methodological studies, and empirical research on the design and implementation of Smart Grids, concerning (but not limited to) the application of: Information and communication technologies, cyber-security, distributed power quality system, phasor measurement unit, energy management, demand side management, micro grids, and e-mobility management.

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. Inventions is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) is waived for well-prepared manuscripts submitted to this issue. 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.
