Special Issue "Advanced Control Systems for Electric Drives"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2020.
Interests: electric drives; control systems; renewable energy
In recent years, electric drives have attracted the attention of researchers in emerging fields such as electric vehicles (EV), renewable energy systems (wind, tidal, ocean, etc.) and high precision motion applications. Electric drives are composed of electrical machines, power electronic converters and control systems. Their efficient operation, for position and speed regulation, is determined by the control system. Furthermore, electric drives are a highly nonlinear, multivariable, time-varying system, depending on the type of the electrical machines, and require more complex methods of control. They constitute a theoretical and practical challenging control problem. The main aim of this Special Issue is to seek high-quality submissions that highlight advances in control techniques for electric drives, address the implementation challenges, and the use in emerging fields.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
- Control algorithms for power electronics converters;
- Adaptive control, robust control, predictive control, and sliding mode control;
- Sensorless control;
- Fault diagnosis and fault tolerant control;
- Control of electric drives in electric vehicles (EV)l
- Control of electric drives in renewable energy systems;
- State and parameters estimation;
- Artificial intelligence (neural network, fuzzy logic, etc.) control 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 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 1500 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.
