The Energies Special Issue "Optimal Planning, Integration and Control of Renewable-Based Microgrid Systems", for which I am serving as Guest Editor, is calling for papers.
Power systems have encountered various significant issues, mostly related to the integration of renewable energy sources into the power grid. The high penetration level of renewable energy sources in the grid causes a low inertia problem, variation and uncertainty problems, a weak grid problem, and new types of stability problems. We cannot radically change the conventional power system to solve those types of problems but we can divide and conquer those problems on a down-scaled system, a microgrid.
This Special Issue aims to present and disseminate the most recent advances related to the theory, design, modelling, application, control, monitoring, and planning of all types of renewable-based microgrids.
