Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the rapid development of computer-based technologies, a wide variety of complex mechatronic systems are used in different fields of application, such as robotic systems, manufacturing systems, heavy duty equipment, and transportation systems. Control technology is therefore considered as the key enabler for high-performance mechatronic applications. However, there are always larger numbers of nonlinearities and uncertainties existing in complex mechatronic systems (such as material properties, system parameters, noises, and disturbances). These factors could significantly impact control system performance, leading to the system instability. Hence, it is necessary to develop advanced and accurate models based on effective dynamic analysis and identification methods to have a better understanding of complex mechatronic systems. The developed models could be used to either design advanced control approaches (such as sliding mode control, H-infinity control, model predictive control, and robust adaptive control) or verify the control systems.

This Special Issue aims to publish the highest quality articles to contribute to the main theme of ‘Advanced Modelling and Control of Complex Nonlinear Mechatronic Systems’. And it will introduce the most recent research findings, the progress, and the advancements of mechatronic systems empowered by advanced modelling and control technology, from both theoretical and practical perspectives.

Regarding the Volume I, please refer to the following link (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/electronics/special_issues/Nonlinear_systems).  All of the 12 published papers can be accessed freely.

The Special Issue welcomes new studies of advanced mechatronic systems in the following fields (but not limited to them):

  • Advanced modelling technology for complex mechatronic systems with nonlinearities and uncertainties;
  • Dynamic analysis and innovative identification methods;
  • Model-based advanced simulation platforms for complex mechatronic systems;
  • Model-based advanced mechatronic system prediction and predictive control;
  • Advanced observer design and observer-based control for complex mechatronic systems;
  • Model-based advanced control of complex mechatronic systems;
  • Precision control of complex mechatronic systems;
  • Robust and adaptive control of complex mechatronic systems;
  • Fault diagnosis and fault-tolerant control in complex mechatronic systems;
  • Real-time verification of complex mechatronic systems and control.

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 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.
