Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Interruptions to the supply of electric power from power systems due to occurrence of typhoons and storms and floods have increased in recent years. Power outages are not only disruptive to daily life but, in the worst-case scenario, can even lead to loss of life. This Special Issue invites research on attempts to maintain supply of electric power and thermal energy using microgrids in the context of various disaster conditions. In order for a continuous power supply to be secured and energy management systems to be maintained for several days, solar power generation and wind power generation can be used. However, it is necessary to introduce optimum energy management methods in critical cases. In addition, electric vehicles are particularly useful transportation tools in certain disaster conditions, and the storage batteries of electric vehicles can also be used to supply electricity. This Special Issue invites researchers in the fields of power control and management, renewable power distribution, and power quality measurement and control to submit their quality research works for publication. The Special Issue includes but is not limited the following topics:

  • Micro grid
  • Power system
  • Renewable energy
  • Resilience of power supply
  • Electric vehicle
  • Smart house/building

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. Sustainability 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 1900 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.
