Special Issue "Electric Fields in Energy & Process Engineering"
A special issue of Energies (ISSN 1996-1073).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (10 April 2018).
Interests: ionic wind; combustion; laser-based diagnostics; process analysis
Heat and mass transfer, as well as chemical reactions in technical processes, can be enhanced by using electric fields and, consequently, they are applicable for optimizing systems in many areas of energy and process engineering.
In electrically-charged fluids, ionised particles or molecules interact with electric fields and the surrounding fluid, inducing an electro-hydrodynamic flow, which is known as the “ionic wind”. In reactive flows, the movement of charge carriers produced by chemi-ionization is controlled by static or transient electric fields. For example, in technical combustors, weak electric fields can be applied for flame stabilization or minimization of pollutant emissions. At high electric field strengths, additional charge carriers are produced enabling new applications like plasma-assisted combustion, electrochemical reforming or plasma gasification of waste or biomass.
The main aims of this upcoming Special Issue of Energies is to give an overview of current fundamental, as well as applied research and to share ideas for potential technical applications. We would like to invite you to submit or recommend original research papers for the “Electric Fields in Energy & Process Engineering” Special Issue.

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.
