Electrical machines play a crucial role in all industry fields and power generation, as well as final energy use and domestic applications. In this modern reality and under the global need for CO2 emission reduction, electric motors, transformers and generators are continuously evolving, aiming for higher efficiencies simultaneously with more reliable operation.
In the field of energy generation and consumption, great changes are taking place. An increasing number of electrical machines are working together with power electronics, while a significant portion of the generated power is covered by renewable energy harvesting. A large number of multiterminal HVDCs are planned in the transmission systems, with new transformers specially designed for them. Moreover, regarding the end use of electric power, there are many developments, such as high-efficiency motors, motors for electric vehicles, aircraft drives, and new technologies such as reluctance, permanent magnets, and superconducting machines.
The electrical machine operation and condition monitoring in the era of the industry 4.0 will be equally innovative. New techniques for signal processing, artificial intelligence, big data analysis, new sensors, and wireless and real time monitoring devices, among others, will be used for the control and supervision of electrical machines.
This Special Issue will focus on all the new advances related to electrical machines, such as novel designs, new applications, condition monitoring, etc. Papers related to modern advances in electrical machines which will shape the future in this field are most welcome.

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 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.
