Special Issue "Design and Optimization of High-Frequency Power Converter"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2020.
Interests: switching power converters; control and modulation strategies; high-frequency power conversion; high-frequency switching circuits; wide band-gap power semiconductors
High-frequency power converters are switching power converters that use high-frequency switching techniques. One of advantages this provides is improved power density, which reduces the system size. This has been applied to recent industrial applications such as solar microinverters, server power supplies, and electric vehicle chargers. At the same time, the use of wide band-gap devices, such as SiC and GaN, creates new challenges for the compact design of high-frequency power converters. With the development of advanced devices, many technical aspects require deep investigation to optimize the design of high-frequency power converters.
This Special Issue focuses on the design and optimization of high-frequency power converters. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Topology, control, and modulation of high-frequency power converters;
- High-frequency switching techniques (resonant switching, switched capacitor);
- High-frequency switching circuits (magnetic design, gate driving circuit);
- Circuit count reduction design of high-frequency power converters;
- Application of wide band-gap devices in high-frequency power conversion;
- Layout and design techniques for high-frequency power converters;
- Industrial applications of high-frequency power converters.

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.
