Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The scope of this Special Issue focuses on applied research concerning power electronic systems for a wide range of uses. We are currently witnessing an enormous development in high-performance electronic systems, as international regulations are strongly tightening the requirements for energy efficiency and green mobility.  Manufacturers of power semiconductor components are overseeing this trend, which is reflected in the continuous development of novel semiconductor structures, their package technologies and the optimization of their thermal performance. However, in light of technological progress, it should be noted that each novel technology requires some time for the evaluation of its suitability for applications. This fact is exacerbated by the current problematic situation with the manufacture and supply of electronic and semiconductor components. Therefore, any novel product development requires a much more detailed analysis to ensure the high reliability and lifetime of power electronic systems. Here, we discuss technological progress within energy storage systems, energy transmission, charging infrastructure, electric traction and electric drives. Recently applied research of these systems in the form of an analysis, modeling, simulation or experimental testing could provide an impetus to accelerate deployment in practical applications.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2000 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.
