Interests: Electric drives; fault diagnosis of electric machines; energy conversion
Electrical machines are critical components of many industrial processes. Currently, much attention is being paid to energy-efficient processes, and within this framework electrical machines have increased their application areas. However, this requires new technologies for drives, power converters, and machines. Hence, reliability has become a critical issue, since for performance and efficiency reasons, high-frequency power signals are fed into machines, intrinsically reducing the lifetime of insulation and magnetic materials. In this context, the fault detection and diagnosis of electrical machines are of increasing importance and mature technologies are required for “open-loop” system fails for electric drives.
This Special Issue will focus on emerging technologies for efficient, non-invasive and online diagnosis of electrical machines. Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to:
- Fault diagnosis of electrical machines and drives.
- Specialized signal processing techniques for fault analysis.
- Fault tolerant electrical systems, including multi-phase machines and/or redundant systems.
- Fault diagnosis of power supply for electrical machines.
- Fault diagnosis of electrical power generators.
- Digital technologies for fault tolerant systems.

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.
