Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We cordially invite you to participate at the Interdisciplinary Conference on Mechanics, Computers and Electrics (ICMECE2021). The event is going to be organized in Ankara, Turkey on 27–28 November 2021 by the local organizer ECERG at Gazi University, with the support of several universities and research centers from all over the world.

The purpose of the ICMECE is to bring together researchers, engineers, and natural scientists from all over the world, interested in advances in all branches of energy engineering, including renewable energy systems. Wind, solar, hydrogen, hydro-, geothermal, solar concentration, fuel cell, energy harvesting, and other energy-related topics are welcome. 

We are open to the inclusion of related topics. 

  • Energy materials production and characterization;
  • Power electronic systems for renewable energy;
  • Conventional energy systems and recovery;
  • Engines and their combustion features;
  • Off-shore and tidal energy systems;
  • Energy statistics and efficiency;
  • Energy transmission systems;
  • Heating/cooling systems;
  • Energy/exergy analysis;
  • Energy efficiency;
  • Wind energy;
  • Solar concentrating systems;
  • Photovoltaics and their installation;
  • Energy harvesters;
  • Smart grid;
  • Electrical machines;
  • Hydroenergy plants;
  • Biomass systems;
  • Biodiesel systems;
  • Combustion;
  • Nuclear fusion systems;
  • Hydrogen energy systems;
  • Fuel cell systems;
  • Efficiency in nuclear plants;
  • Energy education;
  • Energy informatics.

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. 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 2200 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.

This paper presents the comparison of combustion characteristics in a constant volume combustion chamber (CVCC) with alternative fuel biodiesel blends. To achieve this goal, a CVCC experimental was established, and the biodiesel was made from fish oil and was used as test fuel. The combustion process of diesel fuel (B0) and bio-diesel 10% (B10) will be investigated based on doing experiments with two conditions: air-fuel mixed before and after ignition timing. The influence of the oxygen concentration on the burning process is also being investigated. The results of the research show that the heat release rate of B0 is faster and higher than that of B10 in the case of air-fuel mixed before ignition timing. In the case of after ignition timing, these values are almost similar to B0 and B10. Full article
