With the skyrocketed development in semiconductor devices, power electronics converters, either at system-level or at device-level, are receiving special attention in different applications as renewable energy sources, drive systems, power quality applications, High-Voltage DC (HVDC) transmission, and Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS). Control of power converters plays a significant role in meeting the requirements and standards of the relevant application. For instance, in the grid integration of renewable energy sources, the quality of the injected power is of paramount importance where the control is the key player. In drive system applications, the robustness and high dynamic performance are a typical demand. Moreover, control of power converters is the workhorse for energy management in other applications (e.g., energy storage systems, solid state transformers, and electric vehicles). The requirements of the control form a sort of consortium with power electronics meshing towards the compliance with the application main needs.

The main purpose of this special issue is to publish high-quality research papers as well as review articles addressing recent advances on control for emerging topics in power electronics.
