Extensive researches are being performed on renewable energy generation due to decreasing fossil sources and energy security. Innovative methods in energy generation are rapidly becoming attractive. There are many applications to integrate traditional and renewable energy sources to existing utility grid. Power electronics is one of the most important component of modern grid applications and renewable energy systems. The increased efficiency and robustness of power semiconductors enable to improve many types of dc-dc, dc-ac, and ac-ac power conversion. The power converters and device topologies are improved in industrial, residential, commercial and many more specified areas to improve power system resiliency, flexibility, and reliability. On the other hand, electric vehicles and energy storage systems are widely integrated with renewable energy sources. In this special session, emerging technologies and advanced design and modelling studies on “Application of Power Electronics in Renewable Energy Systems” will be discussed.
