Special Issue Information

The AWTEC conference was first held in Jejiu, Korea, in 2012. Then it was held in Tokyo and Singapore every two years. Very quickly, this conference series became the most reputable event on ocean energy in Asia. The event is a platform for engineers, researchers, and experts to keep abreast of the current state-of-the-art advancements in ocean energy in a broad sense, ranging from wave energy, tidal energy, ocean thermal energy, ocean current energy, to offshore wind energy. It encompasses technical, environmental, and economic issues. With high-quality papers and presentations, it promotes marine energy advancement in an interdisciplinary spectrum.

AWTEC 2018 will cooperate with Journal of Marine Science and Engineering (JMSE), an open access journal, to prepare a Special Issue for papers presented at the conference. Prospective authors are cordially invited to submit their high-quality papers from AWTEC 2018 to be considered for publication in the journal.

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. Journal of Marine Science and Engineering 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 550 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.

Abstract
Wave energy, a high-quality renewable energy, is abundant in reserves and relatively stable. However, the wave energy power of the same sea area varies greatly in different seasons. The traditional linear generator cannot work efficiently in such a wide power range. This paper [...] Read more.
Wave energy, a high-quality renewable energy, is abundant in reserves and relatively stable. However, the wave energy power of the same sea area varies greatly in different seasons. The traditional linear generator cannot work efficiently in such a wide power range. This paper presents a segmented permanent-magnet linear generator structure, which is especially designed for the wave energy converter. This type of linear generator can match the wave energy power by increasing or decreasing the specific primary unit, making the generator more efficient over a wider range of wave power than the traditional type. This paper verifies the correctness by finite element analysis. Full article
