Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Wireless power transfer (WPT) technology will be widely used in the near future because it permits the transmission of electrical energy from a power source to an electrical load across an air gap without the use of any galvanic connection.  For this reason, it is safer, cheaper and more comfortable than traditional wired connections. The vision for the future of power supply is the gradual replacement of wire links with wireless connections, as was the case in communications a few years ago. WPT technology based on inductively coupled (resonant or non-resonant) coils is under investigation and development for a very wide range of applications in electric vehicles, drones, medical devices, consumer electronics, portable and mobile devices, sensors, IoT, etc. This Special Issue is focused on algorithms, models, methods, technologies and applications that permit an improvement on the reliability and performance of intelligent WPT systems for fixed and mobile applications.  Potential topics include, but are not limited to, software and hardware intelligent techniques for automatic alignment of coils and re-tuning, smart compensation, range adaptation, multicoil design and selection, soft switching, frequency selection, load matching, mitigation of Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electromagnetic safety issues.

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 monthly 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 1600 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.
