  • high performance electric machines
  • motor drives
  • power electronics and its applications
  • efficient energy conversion
  • motion control and servo systems
  • photovoltaic power generation
  • wind power
  • reliability and fault diagnosis
  • magnetic field analysis
  • new material applications
  • electromagnetic compatibility
  • electrification of transportation

Types of papers

  • Original research papers
  • Review articles, which summarize the most up-to-date achievements on a particular topic, and provide foresight concerning future trends
  • Rapid communications which reporting the latest findings or advances which are deemed to be of significant importance.

Submission Information

    CES TEMS uses ScholarOne Manuscripts, a professional web-based manuscript submission and peer-review tracking system. An author submits a manuscript by uploading a word processing file (.doc) and a PDF file (.PDF) at or through the Journal’s website online submission, where papers can be accessed by the CES TEMS’s Editors-in-Chief, Editors, and Reviewers.

    For the first-time users should create a new account and provide all the information required for a submission. Help is available on the web site, including telephone contacts.

    When the author submits a new manuscript, the main document should include all figures, tables, captions, author biographies, photos and references. And the copyright form should be included in the initial submission.

Upon Acceptance

    Upon acceptance of a paper for publication, the author maybe required to re-upload the Modified Microsoft Word source file of the paper including all figures, tables, captions, author biographies, photos and references.

Open Access 

    In this publication, all papers will be published as Open Access (OA), and the OA fee will be waived if your manuscript is accepted for publication in order to enable unrestricted public access. OA publications are freely available online to anyone, which maximizes the visibility, the uptake and use of the work published. All accepted articles will be indexed by IEEE Xplore.
