Over the decades, the speed of rotating electric machines has been continuously increasing and has now reached hundreds of thousands of rpm. High-speed motors and drives can lead to a high power density and compact design, which are beneficial to a wide range of applications, including aerospace, transportation, and hand-held tools. For example, high-speed permanent magnet synchronous machines can save on the amount of magnets used. This is notably the case if rare-earth materials are used as permanent magnets. This Special Issue attempts to capture the latest technological development in the materials, component, topology, control algorithms, and system design, associated with high-speed electrical machines and their power electronic drive systems. We particularly welcome multi-disciplinary design and optimization approaches, original contributions and review articles on mechanical design, electromagnetics, and industrial applications (e.g., green transportation, renewable energy, and energy storage).

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. 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 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.
