In partnership with Wiley, the IET have taken the decision to convert IET Renewable Power Generation from a library/subscriber pays model to an author-pays Open Access (OA) model effective from the 2021 volume, which comes into effect for all new submissions to the journal from now.

Whilst transitioning to OA as well as collaborating with a new publishing partner, IET Renewable Power Generation will also be migrating to a new electronic peer-review management system , using ScholarOne. The ScholarOne site is now open for all new submissions. Please note that any papers that have been submitted in the journal prior to 1 August 2020 will continue to run in ReView.

COVID-19: A Message from the IET Journals Team We would like to reassure all of our valued authors, reviewers and editors that our journals are continuing to run as usual but, given the current situation, we can offer flexibility on your deadlines if you should need it. Our systems are set up to work to fixed timescales and may issue automatic reminder emails – please do not hesitate to get in contact with us at [email protected] if you need an extension or to discuss options. We recognise the tremendous contribution that you all make to the IET journals and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support.

IET Renewable Power Generation (RPG) brings together the topics of renewable energy technology, power generation and systems integration, with techno-economic issues. All renewable energy generation technologies are within the scope of the journal.

A novel filter-less power allocation and regulation scheme with the prototypic implementation
(Access the article for free until 14th January 2021.)

This paper explores the stability of DC microgrids using a new selected power component droop controller. The main characteristic of the proposed control is the usage of a pseudo-power decomposition technique that uses a droop relation based on the integral of the power for energy storage with high power density, like supercapacitors, and the power itself for energy storage with high energy density, like batteries. It has been shown that the proposed control is effective for dynamic load changes and does not suffer instability problems of conventional linear droop controller. The effectiveness of the control has been validated by both simulations and experiments on a lab-scale microgrid with a number of DC motors to simulate the load dynamic. The main impact of the study is the simplification of the control of energy storage for DC microgrids that enables an optimal share of power for both steady-state and high dynamic conditions. - Pietro Tricoli, Deputy Editor-in-Chief

Fully distributed hierarchical control strategy for multi-inverter-based AC microgrids

This paper explores a decentralised secondary control for AC microgrids that also ensure optimal economic dispatch. The main characteristic of the proposed control is to add a tertiary control for the distributed generators to operate in synergy with the droop controller and achieve frequency restoration. Also, the voltage profile of the microgrid is kept around the nominal value using an average voltage restoration control loop. It has been shown that the proposed control is robust against faults and delays on the communication system between the components of the microgrid. The effectiveness of the control has been validated by both simulations and experiments on lab-scale ac microgrid with 3 inverters. The main impact of the study is that by increasing the level of decentralisation of control, it is possible to improve the operation of distributed generators and then reduce operational costs and power losses. - Pietro Tricoli, Deputy Editor-in-Chief
