Energy storage, including batteries, super-capacitors, superconductor magnetics and fuel cells, are common types used in power electronics systems. They may be used alone, combined with one or more energy storage types, or even in the form of chemical or material combined energy storage. Today, most mobility systems, such as electric vehicle, electric vessel and more electric aircrafts, use certain amounts of energy storage devices. Renewable energy sources are usually either connected to grids or use energy storage units for storage. Even buildings, power distribution, and power systems also use energy storage devices for power backup, power compensation and energy buffers. All of them also need power electronic converters to assist power conditioning, charging and discharging for energy storage.
This Special Issue aims to provide an opportunity for us to propose, discuss and publish new findings in energy storage using power electronics methods. Your contribution may describe new theories, modelling, characterizations, improvements, topology, control methods, and applications. I am looking forward to receiving your submissions.Prof. Dr. Eric Ka-Wai Cheng
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.
