IEEE T IE is an application oriented engineering journal. It is therefore expected that all submissions will contain experimental verification of the novel theoretical concepts, given in the paper. Papers not containing experimental results should therefore not be submitted since they will be subject to an 'Immediate reject' decision. An experimental rig, which must be used by the authors for verification, must contain hardware components other than a PC/laptop.
Please note that this definition means that HiL in general, RT-boxes (from PLECS), Typhoon kits, OPAL-RT systems, and similar do qualify as being regarded parts of a legitimate experimental rig. Please also note that the editors will check whether the papers satisfy this requirement.
