PES Letters

PES Letters

This section of the Transactions offers a vehicle that speeds publication of new results, discoveries, and developments. The section affords authors the opportunity to publish contributions within a few months of submission to ensure rapid dissemination of ideas and timely archiving of developments in our rapidly changing field. Original and significant contributions in applications, case studies, and research in all fields of power engineering are invited. Of specific interest are contributions defining emerging problems and special needs in specific areas. Authors are encouraged to submit contributions to the Letters Section offering new insight to established techniques, concepts, and methodologies in electric power engineering. Such contributions are distinctly different from discussions of papers recently published in the Transactions, in that the former seek to broaden the scope, and point to potential enhancements to existing and established technologies.

Original submissions are limited to 3 formatted pages. Revisions are limited to 3.5 pages. Letters exceeding these limits will not be reviewed. An author submits a manuscript by uploading a PDF file of the letter directly onto ScholarOne Manuscripts where it can be accessed by the Power Engineering Letters Editor-in-Chief, Editors, and Reviewers. See Part 2 of the Author’s Kit,, for complete instructions. (See Mandatory Page Charges for Power Engineering Letters for additional information.)

Mandatory Page Charges for pages upon submission. A half page may be added to respond to reviewer comments. If, in the revision and editing processes, the letter exceeds 3 pages, the author will be charged $150.00 for the 4th page. The authors should strictly follow IEEE format and template so that the length of an accepted letter does not exceed 4 pages after revision and editing. Any letter more than 4 pages in length (after revision and formatting) will not be accepted for publication. If in editing/formatting the letter becomes 5 pages, the Publications Department and the authors need to work with the Editor-in-Chief to reduce the content to fit to 4 pages.
