Special Issue "Fractional-Order Circuits & Systems Design and Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 August 2020.
Interests: fractional calculus; variable fractional order operators; analog modellig of fractional constant and variable order systems
Fractional calculus is a generalization of traditional differential calculus into the case whereas derivatives and integrals can be not only of integer orders but also of non-integer–fractional orders. This calculus was found to be a very efficient and valuable tool in many areas of science. One excellent example of using fractional order calculus in electrical engineering is modelling ultracapacitors. Based on an accurate fractional order model, it was possible to explain some interesting phenomena like loss of capacity equivalence with respect to growing frequency and that the resonance frequency of an ultracapacitor-coil circuit is not equal to the frequency for maximum current.
These and other results of modelling electrical elements and devices based on fractional calculus provided strong motivation to explore fractional circuits theory and applications.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to gather original research articles reflecting the latest developments in both theory and applications of fractional order circuits. The areas of interest include, but are not limited to, modelling of electrical and electronic devices like the new generation of ultracapacitors, batteries, fuel cells, analog modelling of constant and variable order operators and systems, fractional order filters, analysis, synthesis, and design methods for circuits with fractional order elements.

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. Electronics 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 1400 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.
