SI Energies 2019 : Special Issue Multi-Agent Energy Systems Simulation
Call For Papers
Special Issue Information
The synergy between artificial intelligence and power and energy systems is providing promising solutions to deal with the increasing complexity of the energy sector. In particular, multi-agent systems are widely used to simulate complex problems in the power and energy domain, as they enable the modelling of dynamic environments and the study of the interactions between the involved players. Multi-agent systems are suitable not only to deal with problems related to the upper levels of the system, such as the transmission grid and wholesale electricity markets, but also to address challenges associated with the management of distributed generation, renewables, large-scale integration of electric vehicles, and consumption flexibility. Agent-based approaches are also being increasingly used for control and to combine simulation and emulation, by enabling the modelling of the details of buildings’ electrical devices, microgrids, and smart grid components.
This Special Issue brings together the latest advances and trends in multi-agent energy systems simulation. Contributions are welcome on all kinds of agent-based solutions for power and energy systems, including both theoretical multi-agent models and practical applications. We invite papers on innovative technical developments, reviews, and case studies related to multi-agent energy systems simulation.

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. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1600 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.
