Special Issue "Sensors for Smart Grids"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 May 2020).
The electric grid is a vital infrastructure in present-day societies. It is becoming increasingly challenging to operate and control such a complex, continuously-evolving, dynamic system so that it can reliably deliver electricity from diverse generation sources to the end-users. Advances in sensing devices, digital technologies, and communications together make it possible to achieve accurate, online, real-time monitoring of the grid and intelligent, automated control of its operation. To this end, the sensors play a crucial role in the smart grid. The grid is a spatially distributed and interconnected network of a wide range of physical elements: conventional/renewable generation/storage sources, transmission/distribution systems, substations, end-user loads—each element itself is a complex system of hardware devices, components or equipment. Sensors deployed throughout the whole network to the grid edge enable capturing detailed information about the state of the grid, which includes not only time-synchronized electrical parameters but also many other physical parameters that are relevant to the health of the grid components for proper functioning. In this context, we are looking for contributions to the Special Issue “Sensors for Smart Grids” on novel developments in the science and technology of sensors and sensing systems. The scope also extends to associated aspects, such as signal processing, algorithms, and data analytics that enhance the sensor’s performance.

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. Sensors 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 2200 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.
