Special Issue "Energy Harvester Sensing"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 October 2019).
Interests: electromagnetic compatibility; high voltage; partial discharges; renewable energy; power converters and energy harvesting
Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Topical Collection in Sensors: Energy Harvesting Sensors
Special Issue in Electronics: Multilevel Power Converters Based on Wide-Bandgap Semiconductor Devices: Technologies, Modulation, Control and Applications
This Special Issue is proposed to encourage further research and development in energy harvester sensing.
New energy harvesting devices are continually invented, based on electromagnetic or mechanical principles, exploiting electronic components to make power available for sensors.
Contributions might refresh the state-of-the-art, point out the benefits of emerging technologies, or investigate the novel schemes and applications.
Original contributions including experimental validation are expected. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Energy harvesting sensing;
- Mechanical harvesters;
- Electromagnetic harvesters;
- Electronic circuits for the 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. Sensors 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 2400 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.
