Special Issue in Energies: Wireless Power Transfer 2018
Wireless power transfer technologies, as an attractive alternative to cabled charging, are attracting widespread interest in the fields of home electronics, medical implants, electric vehicles, and aerospace industries, due to their convenient and safe characteristics. However, we are facing a number of significant challenges, such as the low cost efficiency and power transfer efficiency, and the high sensitivity to misalignment and distance. All of these require collaborative and sustained efforts from the Societies of Electronics, Power and Energy, Communications, and Computing over the years to come. To promote the development and innovations, this Special Issue is dedicated to publishing research results of wireless power transfer technologies spanning across multiple disciplines. Potential research topics include, but are not limited to:
- Wireless power transfer for mobile devices (e.g., smart phones, tablets), electric vehicles (e.g., PHEVs, buses, trains), home appliances, medical implants, and other industry applications;
- Design of electronics, components, coils, and magnetics in wireless power transfer;
- Modeling, simulation, and control of wireless power transfer systems;
- Analysis of data and environmental impacts in wireless power transfer;
- Joint power-communication-computing system design (such as wireless information and power transfer);
- Applications of wireless power transfer in larger environments (such as smart homes, smart cities and Internet of Things).

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.
