Special Issue "Wireless Rechargeable Sensor Networks"
A special issue of Energies (ISSN 1996-1073).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (17 June 2016)
Wireless sensor networks have attracted a great deal of attention recently due to their various applications in many fields. Due to limited power consumption, these sensor nodes may experience power shortages and thus lead to many problems including network disconnection. Most previous methods focused on providing energy-saving strategies to elevate the lifetime of sensor networks. Another aggressive but different approach is to wirelessly re-charge the sensor nodes to increase the lifetime of the sensor networks.
This Special Issue, entitled “Wireless Rechargeable Sensor Networks”, invites articles that address state-of-the-art technologies and new developments for wireless rechargeable sensor networks (WRSNs).
Articles that deal with the latest hot topics in WRSNs are particularly encouraged, such as charger deployment, charger scheduling, wireless energy transfer, mobile charger design, energy-harvesting technique, and energy provisioning. In addition, articles that discuss protocols, algorithms, and optimization in WRSN, are of particular interest.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
