Interests: combustion; generation-propulsion; turbomachines; computational fluid dynamics and renewable energy
Despite the ever increasing interest of renewable energy sources, power plants based on Internal Combustion Engines (ICEs) still play an important role in power systems—due to requirements of fast dispatch of energy (either to supply peaks in demand or to compensate for intermittency of renewable sources). Hence, in order to reduce emissions and to reduce consumption of fuels, the operation of these engines with maximized efficiencies is paramount.
We are pleased to invite you to contribute with your research (either from the academia or industry) on topics related to the increase of efficiency of ICEs (not only in power generation but also in transportation). We are looking for papers focusing on (but not limited to) condition-based maintenance, sensors and instrumentation, signal processing techniques, and algorithms aiming to improve the operation of the ICEs. Additionally, papers related to the optimized combustion of fuels are welcomed—which may include online characterization of fuels and detection of contaminants and counterfeit/adulteration.

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. Machines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
