The emergence of wide bandgap (WBG) technology has provided designers with new features, such as high frequency operation (up to MHz range), more compact design, and higher temperature endurance (up to 150 °C). Considering each of these features, this technology is opening a new era for high-frequency power conversion, new automotive and aircraft technologies, and robust power electronics design in harsh climate environments, respectively. Additionally, reliable and robust performance has become a major pre-requisite in the new application of power electronics. Therefore, characterization of faults and monitoring device health are necessary in order to enable WBG-based power modules and devices to be employed in new power electronics applications. In this regard, reliable performance aspects require deep investigation to enable these technologies to be widely used in a new generation of power conversion.
This Special Issue aims to address some of the techniques, methodologies, and trends in characterization, monitoring, and elimination of probable faults in WBG-based power electronics circuits.Dr. Kamyar Mehran

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2600 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.
