Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the rapid development of mobile robotics, electrical vehicles, and unmanned aerial vehicles, dynamic wireless power transfer (WPT) has become a very popular topic in science and technology. Dynamic WPT is a reliable and convenient way to transfer electric power to moving objects (moving consumers of electrical energy), such as flying drones, moving electrical vehicles, moving mobile robots, moving sensors, etc.

This Special Issue is focused mainly on inductive or capacitive dynamic WPT for moving objects. Articles on novel control techniques and power electronic topologies for dynamic WPT are welcome. Review articles on dynamic WPT as well as research articles on ultrasonic-based, laser-based, or microwave-based dynamic WPT systems are also welcome.

Potential research topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Improved solutions for dynamic inductive or capacitive WPT to autonomous mobile robots and electrical vehicles;
  • Dynamic WPT techniques for moving sensors;
  • Dynamic WPT for charging drones while they are flying or the dynamic charging of electrical vessels;
  • Control techniques for dynamic WPT systems;
  • Dynamic WPT for mobile robots driving arbitrary trajectory;
  • Ultrasonic-based, laser-based, or microwave-based dynamic WPT systems;
  • Electromagnetic compatibility and safety issues of dynamic WPT systems.

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 2400 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.
