Special Issue Information
At present, stronger exploitation of renewable energy is at the centre of the policy agenda worldwide, and, in this context, wind turbines are the most promising technology.
Nevertheless, wind turbines are complex machines, subjected to non-stationary operation conditions; therefore, it is fundamental to promote deeper scientific comprehension of the operation of this technology. Furthermore, despite horizontal-axis wind turbines substantially constituting a mature technology, new challenges have arisen with the increasing size of the machines and with the exploitation in complex environments.
Based on these considerations, the objective of this Special Issue is to collect contributions devoted to the general topic of wind turbine technologies. Therefore, the Special Issue has a wide scope, and, in accordance to the scientific purposes of the journal, the common ground is expected to be a focus on the machine. Theoretical and experimental contributions are both welcome.
Contributions that deal with the following aspects, applied to wind turbine technologies, are particularly welcome (although the list should not be considered as exclusive):
- Structural Health Monitoring;
- Condition Monitoring;
- Fault Diagnosis and Prognosis;
- Fatigue and Life Cycle Assessment;
- Rotor Design;
- Wind Turbine and Wind Farm Control;
- Wind Turbine Blades: Design and Materials;
- Wind Turbine Generators;
- Converters and Power Electronics;
- Wind Turbines Pitch;
- Wind Turbines Yaw;
- Performance Analysis;
- Wind Tunnel Testing;
- Vibration and Noise Reduction;
- Horizontal- and Vertical-Axis Micro Wind Turbines;
- SCADA Data Analysis and Wind Turbine Sensors;
- Measurement Applications;
- Wind Turbine Wakes;
- Floating Wind Turbines;
- Wind Turbines in Complex Terrain;
- Computational Fluid Dynamics and Aeroelastic Simulations.

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. Machines 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 2000 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.
