Starting on the 15th of June 2020 we wiil introduce a new policy for reviewers. Reviewers who provide timely and substantial comments will receive a discount voucher entitling them to an APC reduction. Vouchers (worth of 25 EUR or 50 EUR, depending on the review quality) will be assigned to reviewers after the final decision of the reviewed paper is given. Vouchers issued to specific individuals are not transferable.

Starting on the 15th of December 2019 all paper authors are required to enter their SCOPUS IDs. You may use the free SCOPUS ID lookup form to find yours in case you don't remember it.

Clarivate Analytics published the InCites Journal Citations Report for 2018. The JCR Impact Factor of Advances in Electrical and Computer Engineering is 0.650, and the JCR 5-Year Impact Factor is 0.639.

Starting today, the minimum number a pages for a paper is 8, so all submitted papers should have 8, 10 or 12 pages. No exceptions will be accepted.

The demand characteristic is the most important one in analyzing customer information. In a distribution network, there is in any moment certain degree of uncertainty about busses loads, and consequently, about load level of network, busses voltage level, and power losses. Therefore, it is very important to estimate first of all the load profiles of buses, using available data (measurements effectuated in distribution stations). The results obtained for various distribution stations demonstrate the effectiveness of the present method in overcoming the difficulties encountered in optimal planning and operation of distribution networks.
