Power Electronics Emerging Technologies for Sustainable Energy Conservation

Submission Deadline:  30 November 2022

IEEE Access invites manuscript submissions in the area of Power Electronics Emerging Technologies for Sustainable Energy Conservation.   

Sustainable Energy Conservation (SEC) is one of the most complex and interesting topics of our era. SEC transforms energy delivered by nature to energy which can be operated by humans for long-term sustenance in a highly effective way. There is not a single answer or strategy to solve such a complex challenge.

SEC can be understood as a summary of individual and group efforts, from across disciplines, to achieve a rational use of energy today, considering the energy needs of generations to come. Mathematicians, physicists, chemists, researchers, technologists, engineers, and technicians from different perspectives and countries are working together to develop front-end solutions and techniques in the SEC area, because issues on any part of the earth affect all of us. 

Over the last decade, Power Electronics (PE) became an established technology, providing solutions to our dependence on fossil fuel systems such as oil and gas supply in broad areas such as: industry, power, automotive, medicine, and agriculture. Today, due to the transformation of PE, we have seen the appearance of industry 4.0, electrification, electromobility, bioelectronics and agriculture 4.0. This last was mainly motivated by the entrance of wide-bandgap semiconductors, the arrival of advanced ferromagnetic materials, the emergence of improved modeling and control techniques, and a broad digitalization. The PE community is developing small size and weight applications-solving issues related to price, efficiency, power consumption, and power density.

This Special Section in IEEE Access will target numerous prospects in Power Electronics Emerging Technologies for Sustainable Energy Conservation. Applications of desired SEC comprise but are not restricted to e-mobility, smart connected and self-sustainable electronic grids, transportation electrification, off-grid, digitalization, rural-electrification applications, lighting, internet of things and everything, health care and biomedicine, and wearables, among others. Therefore, we invite both review and research articles in order to represent resourceful technologies related to this domain.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Power electronics and renewable sustainable energy systems
  • Power electronics and energy storage systems
  • Power electronic interfaces for energy systems
  • Power electronics for energy harvesting
  • Control of power electronic converters
  • Power electronics in pico-grids and micro-grids
  • Optimization in power electronics with applications to energy conversion
  • Digitalization in power electronics
  • Intelligent power electronics in renewable energy systems
  • Electric/hybrid vehicle converters

 

We also highly recommend the submission of a video with each article as it significantly increases the visibility of articles.

Data-Driven Monitoring, Fault Diagnosis and Control of Cyber-Physical Systems

Submission Deadline: 4 December 2017

IEEE Access invites manuscript submissions in the area of Data-Driven Monitoring, Fault Diagnosis and Control of Cyber-Physical Systems.

A cyber-physical system (CPS) is a system with intense interaction of entities in the physical world and the abstract information. Such systems commonly exist in both industrial manufacturing and people’s daily lives. As a central investigation topic in Industrial 4.0, the concept of CPS raises vast interests in the academic world as well as in the industrial realm. From the viewpoint of CPS, a bridge is built between the virtual and the real domains, where the strategies of analysis, monitoring, fault diagnosis, control and optimization should be further investigated in a higher systematic level. Typical examples of CPSs include smart grid, autonomous vehicles, process control systems, and industrial robotics systems. The traditional techniques are mainly focused on either the physical object or the abstract data model individually. A simultaneous consideration of both domains is likely to reveal the properties.

Presently, conventional methods of fault diagnosis and control require analytical system models, which are established based on either the physical constraints (first principles) or identification techniques. The feasibility and complexity of these approaches vary significantly among specific applications and the monitoring performance relies heavily on the model precision. On the other hand, data-driven approaches provide a potential solution to large-scale complex systems with better reliability. The motivation of the big data-driven practical solutions originates from the rapid development of digitalized sensors, storage techniques and other information infrastructure, which provide colossal but redundant system information. Consequently, the greatest problem is to design universally feasible solutions to ascertain CPS behavior and to perform fault diagnosis and control design based on the characteristics extracted from the databases and the real-time measurements.

This Special Section in IEEE Access aims to provide a platform for the researchers and participants from both the academic community and industrial sectors to report their recent research and application progress in the field of data-driven CPS monitoring, fault diagnosis and control design.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • New data-driven CPS model description and modelling techniques
  • Robust data-driven optimization algorithms for CPSs
  • Unified framework for CPS formulation and analysis
  • Advanced approaches for CPS monitoring
  • Data-Driven CPS fault detection, isolation and diagnosis methods
  • CPS-oriented fault-tolerant control
  • CPS-oriented robust control
  • Data-driven artificial intelligence approaches applied in CPS
  • Challenges and techniques for potential industrial and domestic applications

 

We also highly recommend the submission of multimedia with each article as it significantly increases the visibility, downloads, and citations of articles.

Advanced modeling and control of complex mechatronic systems with nonlinearity and uncertainty

Submission Deadline: 28 February 2018

IEEE Access invites manuscript submissions in the area of Advanced modeling and control of complex mechatronic systems with nonlinearity and uncertainty.

Various complex mechatronic systems are widely applied in industries such as robotics, micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), motor or hydraulic driven equipment. And the control technology is the key issue for mechatronic systems to achieve the good performance. However, for those complex mechatronic systems, mechanism nonlinearities and uncertainties (e.g., internal uncertainties, external unstructured environments, and undesired disturbances) are much more obvious and lead to the significant negative effects. Thus, the effective modeling, identification and dynamic analysis are necessary for complex mechatronic systems with nonlinearity and uncertainty. And the model-based advanced control designs such as adaptive control, robust control, sliding-mode control, backstepping control, H-infinite control, etc. are the corresponding solutions to improve the system performance. Contributions from industry applications are particularly encouraged, and both theoretical and experimental works are welcome.

The main objective of this Special Section in IEEE Access is to report the recent theoretical and technological achievements on advanced modeling and control of various complex mechatronic systems with nonlinearity and uncertainty. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Modeling and identification of mechatronic (e.g., robotics, MEMS, motor actuation, hydraulic actuation) systems
  • Nonlinear dynamic analysis of complex mechatronic systems
  • Model-based advanced control of complex mechatronic systems, such as adaptive control, robust control, sliding-mode control, backstepping control, H-infinite control, etc.
  • Nonlinear observer design and observer-based control for complex mechatronic systems
  • Precision motion control of mechatronic systems with nonlinearity and uncertainty
  • Robust fault diagnosis, fault isolation and fault tolerant control in complex mechatronic systems
  • Active vibration control in complex mechatronic systems

We also highly recommend the submission of multimedia with each article as it significantly increases the visibility, downloads, and citations of articles.
