Special Issue "Ship Energy Systems"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2020).
Interests: hydro and thermal power plants; distributed generation; cogeneration and trigeneration; gas turbines; energy system optimization; energy production systems
In navigation, the containment of energy consumption has always been an aspect of great importance. Today, the power generation sector on board ships is experiencing a "revolution" due to both the entry into force of legislation on increasingly polluting emissions and the change in on-board energy consumption, which is becoming increasingly polygenerative (mechanical energy, electricity, heat, and cold) instead of only being propulsive.
In this context, this Special Issue aims to address this current pressing problem inviting papers concerning new on-board power generation systems, different from the traditional systems with internal combustion engines fueled with heavy fuel oil.
Very important aspects related to the performance of innovative energy systems, emission reduction, space and volume optimization could be discussed. System optimization could be considered in terms of both optimal design and optimal management in the operational life of a ship, considering the ship's electrical, thermal, refrigeration load demands in the different navigation phases.

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1800 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.
