Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The goals set by the European Commission in terms of pollutant emission reduction by 2050 have led energy system designers to increase their efforts towards the deployment and adoption of greener technologies and innovative solutions. This is especially true for the power generation and propulsion fields, both of which highly contribute to NOx and CO2 emissions.

Within this context, the thermal management of energy systems plays a key role in increasing overall system efficiency and, conversely, decreasing pollutant emissions. Researchers’ efforts should hence be driven towards the accurate evaluation of metal temperatures by correctly estimating heat transfer and fluid flow. Newly designed experimental equipment and high-fidelity computational fluid dynamics represent fundamental tools to deal with such demanding outcomes. Furthermore, optimization methods based on artificial intelligence are now available to design complex components that can be realized by additive manufacturing and can guarantee high aero-thermal efficiency. It is also worth considering that the increasing usage of sustainable fuels and energy carriers (e.g., hydrogen) further complicates the situation due to the potential increase in NOx production.

For such reasons, the Guest Editors are inviting submissions to this Special Issue in Energies on the subject area of “Recent Advances in Fluid Machinery, Energy Systems and Power Generation”. Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Experimental analysis;
  • Computational fluid dynamics;
  • Thermal management;
  • Power generation;
  • Turbomachinery;
  • Hybrid engines;
  • Turbine cooling;
  • Hydrogen combustion;
  • Optimization methods.

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. Energies 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 2600 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.
