High voltage engineering has become a crucial part of our modern society, from the different components in the power system grid, to the copy machines around us. Recently, different challenges have emerged in high voltage engineering that need special attention from researchers. For example, with the increased use of high voltage DC systems, the design of both outdoor insulators and underground cable insulation needs careful investigation under the new stress conditions. Another interesting area in high voltage engineering is the emerging of new class of materials called “nano dielectrics” that shows great potential for use in both solid and liquid insulation systems. Moreover, with the increasing number of aged assets in power systems, there is a need for smart, efficient and cost-effective condition monitoring techniques. This involves the use of new sensors, advanced signal processing and state of the art machine learning algorithms. Additionally, the industrial applications of high voltage are widespread like electrostatic precipitators, electrostatic paining and pulse power application. This Special Issue aims at encouraging researchers to address these important issues and other challenges in high voltage engineering.

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. Energies 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.
