Special Issue in Energies: Modular (Segmented) Electrical Machines
Permanent magnet electrical machines are an emerging type of electromechanical converter technology. They have high power/torque density and demonstrate high efficiency. There has been increased interest in such machines due to their potential for widespread applications, such as industrial applications and applications in electric/hybrid vehicles, electric aircrafts and ships, renewable power generation, unmanned propulsion systems, etc.
The topic is broad, because it covers not only well-known surface and interior permanent magnet synchronous motors, brushless d.c. motors, hybrid steppers, etc., but also a lot of other electrical machines, such as those with hybrid excitation, double saliency, transverse flux, memory and magnetic-gearing types, vernier machines, etc. The subject includes both rotating and linear machines, those with interior and exterior rotors, and those having radial and axial flux.
Papers covering new topologies, structures, manufacturing technologies, analysis methods, control strategies, and new emerging applications of permanent magnet electrical machines are strongly welcome. Contributions dealing with advancements made in permanent magnet materials for electrical machines are also of interest.

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 1800 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.
