Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Wind turbines are one of the most efficient technologies for producing clean energy and their role in worldwide electricity usage is destined to further grow. At the end of 2018, the installed wind power was around 600 GW, with a yearly increase in the order of 10%.

The development of wind turbine technology requires advanced scientific techniques in the fields of aerodynamics, modeling and simulation, applied statistics, control and monitoring, material science, and applied mechanics.

On these grounds, this Special Issue is collecting contributions about the most recent advances in wind energy science.

The list of possible topics is wide. Some examples include, but are not limited to, developments in the following:

  • Wind turbine technology (aerodynamic and-or control system);
  • Wind turbines control and monitoring (performance evaluation and-or condition monitoring) through data analysis and measurement techniques;
  • Wind farm management and control;
  • Grid integration of wind energy;
  • Offshore wind energy and wind turbine wakes;
  • Onshore wind energy and wind farms in complex terrain;
  • modeling and simulation techniques;
  • Turbulence;
  • Aeroelasticity and loads;
  • Structures and materials;
  • Micro horizontal or vertical axis wind turbines.

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. Clean Technologies is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
