Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Voltage and current measurements are required in different industrial applications across many sectors, including the electrical power, oil and gas or nuclear sectors. Optical voltage and current sensors offer a number of benefits over their conventional equivalents, such as light weight, small size, wide bandwidth, high accuracy, immunity to electromagnetic interference, and galvanic isolation. Some of the optical voltage and current sensors have matured to the point that they meet the relevant industry standards, and they may provide a direct replacement for their conventional counterparts, offering passive measurements over long distances and improvements in measurement quality, overcoming the current technology limitations.
This Special Issue aims at presenting the latest research activities in the field of optical voltage and current sensors, distributed voltage and current sensing, sensor networks, and their applications in power and energy sectors. The Special Issue will also focus on new sensor designs, fabrication methods, sensing techniques, and system architectures to achieve improved measurement accuracy and resolution, and unique functionality in voltage and current monitoring on AC and DC networks. Authors are invited to submit both review and original research articles describing recent progress in optical voltage and current sensors.
Topics of interests include (but are not limited to):
- Novel concepts of optical voltage and current sensing;
- Design and development of new optical voltage and current sensors;
- Sensor fabrication and packaging;
- Sensor interrogation techniques;
- Sensor characterization and performance evaluation;
- Distributed voltage and current sensing;
- Remote voltage and current monitoring;
- Optical voltage and current sensors for industrial applications.

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. 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 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.
