Energy Equipment and Systems (energyequipsys) is an internationally recognized multi-disciplinary scientific and engineering journal with a focus on the broad field of power generation systems. Energyequipsys is published quarterly in March, June, September and December of each year.

Energy Equipment and Systems belongs to the University of Tehran, which is a governmental organization; therefore, all expenses are covered by this university as well as Iranian Ministry of Science, Research and Technology.

The journal is aimed to provide a dependable peer review platform for publishing original research articles, review papers and communications which are compiled to advance the current state of the knowledge about  different aspects of the energy related systems based on the fossil fuel, biofuel and renewable energy sources. Energyequipsys highlights  major theoretical achievements, numerical/computational simulations and the experimental investigations of the energy production, conversion and storage equipment and systems.

Energy Equipment and Systems encourages highly contributions from fields of fluid flow, heat transfer, thermodynamics, CFD, system dynamics and control, optimization, multi-physics modeling, metallurgy and materials science and manufacturing related to the energy analysis, energy modeling and prediction, integrated energy systems and energy efficient systems.

On behalf of the EnergyEquipSys staff and members, I wish a Happy Norooz for everyone and hope this year brings health and prosperity to all mankind, in general, and to the engineering community in particular.  Together, we have managed to finish another volume for this journal, and herewith, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all the authors, reviewers and the journal editorial team for their efforts during this past year. 

Unfortunately, world is facing a serious problem with COVID-19 pandemic which impacts us all, and we are offering every possible support to our followers, authors and members. While at present there has been no major impact to our business or services, we ask for your understanding that this unprecedented situation might lead to some delays in the peer review process.
