Electromagnetic actuators have been mostly used in mechatronics applications when high-speed, high-precision, and contactless effects have been required. Their mechanical design needs to be optimal to mitigate the energy demand. Modeling of these actuators is challenging, and their behaviors exhibit nonlinear dynamics. As high performance is required, these actuators must interact digitally with innovative control systems. Cooperative actuators are an interesting class of this new actuator and require very special control systems. These actuators are suitable for all application fields, from micro systems to large mechanical systems.
Contributions from all fields related to innovative electromagnetic actuators are welcome to this Special Issue, particularly the following:
- Electromagnetic actuators: state-of-the-art, digitalization, applications, case studies, project reports;
- Design of innovative electromagnetic actuators: optimal design, fabrication, EMC, modeling and simulation, system-identification of dynamics;
- High-speed and/or high-accurate and cooperative actuators;
- Digital control of electromagnetic actuator: robust, nonlinear, MPC, data-based control-systems;
- Design of electromagnetic actuator testbeds for education purpose.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. Actuators 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.
