The Guest Editor is inviting submissions to a Special Issue of Energies on the subject area of “Testing and Management of Lithium-ion Batteries”. After dominating the portable electronics market, Lithium-ion batteries have become the key energy storage technology for propelling electric vehicles (EV, HEV, and PHEV), and they are entering the renewable energy storage sector (e.g., grid support applications, microgrids, renewables’ grid integration enhancement). Nevertheless, Li-ion batteries are highly non-linear systems with their performance behavior strongly influenced by the short-term and long-term operating conditions. Thus, before being deployed in a certain application, extensive testing is required in order to understand and learn the behavior of the battery at various real-life conditions. Subsequently, based on these knowledge, battery models, state estimation methods, and battery cell balancing algorithms can be developed in order to achieve an optimal management of the battery cells in a battery pack, which will ensure battery lifetime maximization and battery cost optimization.

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.
