Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Following on from our highly successful Special Issue, Electrical Power and Energy Systems for Transportation Applications

(https://www.mdpi.com/journal/energies/special_issues/Electrical_Power_Energy_Systems), we invited submissions to a further Special Issue of Energies on the subject area of “Next-Generation Low-Carbon Power and Energy Systems”.

This Special Issue will focus on the components of power and energy and, additionally, the development of optimized, robust systems; for example, more-electric and all-electric aircraft, electric and hybrid road vehicles, marine propulsion applications, energy conversion, renewable energy, energy storage and transmission and low emission combustion. It is the integration of these technologies and control methods into optimized systems, which is crucial to achieving critical global targets in energy efficiency, low-carbon, and low-emissions operations. The greatest challenges occur when we combine new technologies at large-scales and often complex system levels.

Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Novel Electrical Power Systems architectures and technologies;
  • Energy vectors, integration with renewables, power and energy dense machines, converters and energy storage;
  • Air, land and sea vehicles; electrical propulsion and actuation for land, sea and air vehicles;
  • Electrical Machines, Drives, Systems and Applications—AC and DC machines and drives;
  • Multiscale systems modeling; remote monitoring and diagnosis;
  • Power Electronic Systems—Converters and emerging technologies;
  • Modeling simulation and control, reliability and fault tolerance, safety critical operation;
  • Electrical Power Generation Systems—Modeling and simulation of electrical power systems;
  • Load management; power quality; distribution reliability; distributed and islanded power systems, sensor networks, communication and control;
  • Electrical Power Systems Modeling and Control—Modeling and control methodologies and applications;
  • Intelligent systems; optimization and advanced heuristics; adaptive systems; robust control.
