About This Topic

Over the past decades, the technology of hybridization has provided great possibilities to use locally available distributed energy resources (both conventional and renewable sources) for supplying electric power in different sectors. This integration of different energy sources in one supply system not only brings higher flexibility in system operation and control, but also increases the reliability of energy supply and provides a cost-effective means to minimize the impact of intermittent resources.

Hybrid Power Systems (HPSs), in general, can include variety of energy sources, energy storage devices, and energy conversion units connected in different configurations such as AC, DC or hybrid AC/DC. Load management options and supervisory control systems are also deemed as supplementary parts of HPSs. However, to optimally shape HPSs and operate them securely, different aspects must be considered from the system design/planning phase to operating level. It also necessitates related regulatory frameworks, strategic incentives and business models for efficient deployment.

This Special Issue will cover these promising and dynamic areas of research and development, and will allow gathering of contributions in design, control, operation and optimization of grid-connected and off-grid HPSs. This Special Issue also seeks papers to report advances in any aspect of these developments. The manuscripts should be unpublished and report significant advancement.
