Due to the energy crisis and its environmental impact, improving the efficiency of cooling, power, and energy systems has become one of the most important aspects of the energy sector. Thermodynamic and exergy analyses provide better insight for the design, development, optimization, and performance improvement of these cooling, power, and energy systems. This Special Issue aims to address the current pressing problems in the development of advanced and innovative cooling, power, and energy systems using thermodynamic and exergy analyses. Papers are invited that investigate thermal and operational characteristics of novel and creative systems, and improved conventional cooling power and energy systems. Topics may include studies on the system components and whole cycles related to the cooling, energy, and power systems. Additionally, papers are welcome that deal with the thermodynamic process of the currently hot and new technologies that are proposed for energy savings or for the purpose of environmental protection. System and components optimization through thermodynamic and exergy analyses for performance enhancement is also very welcome.Prof. Dr. Xiaolin Wang
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. Applied Sciences 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 2300 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.
