International Journal of Power and Energy Systems

Special Issue on
Control of Renewable Energy Systems

Call for Papers


Renewable energies such as wind and solar have become an inevitable part of power generation in modern grid scenarios. However, unlike conventional sources of power generation, the output of renewable energy sources is intermittent. Advanced control strategies are required for handling the changing dynamics, nonlinearities, and uncertainties of the system. Efficient control strategies would increase the number of operational hours of the system and reduce the cost of the electricity produced. We invite original and unpublished papers on the theory, design, development, and applications of advanced controllers for renewable energy systems.


Topics of interest include the following:

    • Adaptive and predictive control
    • Optimization
    • Adaptive filtering
    • Scheduling
    • Machine learning
    • Forecasting
    • Artificial intelligence methodologies
    • Fault analysis
    • Standalone renewable energy systems
    • Protection
    • Grid connected renewable energy systems
    • Power electronics
    • Energy storage systems
    • Modelling
    • Microgrid systems
    • Simulation
    • Stability
    • Practical applications
    • Efficiency
