Special Issue "Future Wireless Power Transfer and Communications"
A special issue of Energies (ISSN 1996-1073).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 December 2019.
Wireless power transfer (WPT) technologies have been considered as promising solutions for supplying power to mobile devices. In particular, radio frequency (RF) based WPT technologies have recently attracted a great amount of research interest, since the WPT can remove the last wire of mobile devices and provide real mobility for Internet of Things (IoT) environments. Since RF signals are simultaneously exploited for wireless communications, i.e., wireless information transfer (WIT), a joint optimization of WPT and WIT should be carefully designed.
This Special Issue will focus on emerging joint technologies of WPT and communications. Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
- Simultaneous wireless power and information transfer (SWIPT);
- Wireless powered communication networks (WPCN);
- WPT hardware testbed and implementation;
- Safety issues for WPT;
- Low power communication protocol for WPT;
- Far-field RF energy transfer circuits and antennas;
- Near-field energy transfer technologies.

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.
