This special issue addresses a group of major technical issues related to the failure mechanisms and condition monitoring of electrical and electronic devices. These devices range from electrical machines, transformers to switches, capacitors and converters which play a key role in electrical power generation, conversion and consumption. These issues are increasingly important as their applications are everywhere and especially to those industry critical to establishing low-carbon economy such as electric vehicles, aircraft, new and renewable energy.
From my experience of organizing international conferences, the number of papers in these areas is seen in increase year after year. There is a pressing need to disseminate research work to the research community and industry.
