Modeling, Control, Optimization, and Analysis of Electrified Vehicle Systems

Call for Papers

Electrified Vehicles, such as Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs), Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs), and Plug-in Hybrids Electric Vehicles (PHEVs), have the potential to significantly reduce dependency on fossil fuels and pollutant emissions, as the revolutionary technology expedites a paradigm shift towards a sustainable transportation. These electrified vehicles can facilitate renewable ways of generating electricity, for example, wind and solar energy sources, leading to a good synergy between the transportation and power sectors. The electrified vehicle technology is being continuously proliferated by the development of advanced modeling and simulation methodology, system integration, control, optimization, and mechatronic system diagnostics and prognostics, as well as by incentives from economy and policy.

The primary objective of this special section is to provide timely solutions for technological and economic challenges in modeling, simulation, control, and optimization of electrified vehicle systems. The main focuses will be on system-level modeling, optimization, and control, as well as component-level modeling and control, such as engine, electric machine, and energy storage device. Additionally, the economic and policy aspects to promote the market penetration of electrified vehicles are necessarily involved. We sincerely solicit original high-quality technical that are not under consideration at other publication venues. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • System-level modeling, simulation, analysis, optimization, control, diagnostics, prognostics, reliability, and health management of electrified vehicles
  • Modeling, calibration, control, and management of energy storage systems for electrified vehicles, for example, battery, ultracapacitor, fuel cell, and flywheel technologies
  • Modeling, analysis, and control of electric machines and motor drive systems for electrified vehicles
  • Modeling, analysis, and control of power electronic circuits and converters and inverters for electrified vehicles
  • Modeling, analysis, and control of internal combustion engines for electrified vehicle powertrains
  • Modeling, analysis, optimization, and control of vehicle-to-grid (V2G) and vehicle-to-building (V2B) services
  • Modeling, analysis, and optimization of economy and policy for transportation electrification, for example, the scheduling of charging stations, economic analysis of battery swapping, and life-cycle assessment of electrified vehicles
