Lead Guest Editor: Ali Abdali University of Zanjan, Iran Guest Editor: Navid Bayati Aalborg Universitet, Denmark Iman Sadeghkhani Najafabad Branch, Islamic Azad University, Iran Hammad Armghan School of Electrical Engineering, Shandong University, Jinan 250061, China Abbas Rabiee University of Zanjan, Iran Kazem Mazlumi University of Zanjan, Iran Overview DC microgrids have attracted significant attention over the last decade in both academia and industry. The DC microgrid has demonstrated superiority over the ac microgrid with respect to reliability, efficiency, control complexity, integration of renewable energy sources, and connection of DC loads. Despite these numerous advantages, designing and implementing an appropriate control and protection system for DC microgrids remains a significant challenge. The challenge stems from the rapid rise of DC fault current which must be extinguished in the absence of naturally occurring zero crossings, potentially leading to sustained arcs. As a result, DC microgrids pose a number of technical challenges including protection and control. Protection challenges require addressing grid-code compliance, mis-coordination/ sympathetic tripping of protective devices due to high penetration of distributed energy resources, design of an optimum grounding system, standardization, and topology-based coordination of protective devices. Further protection issues in DC microgrids encompass different entities, including resilience establishment that includes cyber-attacks upon manipulation of control networks with protection schemes, and mechanisms to address operational integrity as well as consumers’ privacy. Protection schemes for DC microgrids must be aligned and coordinated with the control system. Several control concepts such as multi-agent system, distributed control, networked control, cooperative control, and sparse communication can be effectively used to facilitate operation of control systems. High penetration levels of intermittent renewable energy sources further impose different set of challenges including voltage rise & fluctuation, reverse power flows, temporary overvoltage, power quality deterioration and issues related to protection and voltage/current imbalance. Integration of distributed energy storage systems including battery storage can be used to alleviate the aforementioned issues. The potential topics of this special issue include, but are not limited to: Control issues of DC microgrids Protection issues of DC microgrids Protection and control technical challenges in DC microgrids Smart protective and control devices used in hybrid AC-DC microgrids Protection and control technical challenges in hybrid AC-DC microgrids DC Microgrids service restoration and islanding detection Cyber-Attack (Logistic-based) Detection Strategy for DC Microgrids Securing and resilience of hybrid AC-DC microgrids The submitted manuscripts for this Special Collection will be peer-reviewed before publication.
