IEEE Transactions on Power Delivery


The scope of the IEEE Transactions on Power Delivery embraces innovations in electric apparatus for power delivery with a main focus on power transmission and distribution components. It also covers apparatus modeling, analysis, implementation and application issues such as power system protection, instrumentation, communication, and grounding; electromagnetic transients and power quality; and substation automation. The Transaction’s scope further includes research works leading to power engineering standards.


Impact Factor

The Impact Factor for the IEEE Transactions on Power Delivery is 4.13.

Peer Review

The articles in this journal are peer reviewed in accordance with the requirements set forth in the IEEE Publication Services and Products Board Operations Manual ( Each published article was reviewed by a minimum of two independent reviewers using a single-blind peer review process, where the identities of the reviewers are not known to the authors, but the reviewers know the identities of the authors. Articles will be screened for plagiarism before acceptance.

Open Access

This publication is a hybrid journal, allowing either Traditional manuscript submission or Open Access (author-pays OA) manuscript submission.

The OA option, if selected, enables unrestricted public access to the article via IEEE Xplore. The OA option will be offered to the author at the time the manuscript is submitted. If selected, the OA discounted fee of $2,195 must be paid before the article is published in the journal. If you have unusual circumstances about this, please contact the Editor-in-Chief. Any other applicable charges (such as the over-length page charge and/or charge for the use of color in the print format) will be billed separately once the manuscript formatting is complete but prior to the publication.

The traditional option, if selected, enables access to all qualified subscribers and purchasers via IEEE Xplore. No OA payment is required.

Recent Changes

Since January 2021, the IEEE Transactions on Power Delivery accepts initial submission of papers with up to 10 pages. Please note that overlength charges apply for every page in excess of 8.

Overlength Page Charges

Beginning 1 January 2019, overlength page charges will be $150 per each page in excess of the first eight published pages.
