IET Electrical Systems in Transportation

About this Journal

Aims and scope

IET Electrical Systems in Transportation is a fully open access journal that invites original research and review articles strongly aligned with any aspect of electrical transport, including but not limited to:

All aspects of the hybrid, more or all electric propulsion systems or drivetrains:

  • Electrical propulsion drive system
  • Onboard electrical generation systems, or starter/generators
  • Energy storage systems
  • Fault-tolerant technology design or control
  • System level integration, reconfiguration, protection or control
  • Health prognostics and diagnostics, or condition monitoring
  • Superconducting technologies

Advanced load systems:

  • Actuators design
  • Electric anti-icing solutions
  • Hybrid or all electric loads

Onboard ancillary systems:

  • System-level communication
  • Comms or sensor fault-tolerance or redundancy
  • Cyber security issues

Interactions of electric transport with the land-based power system:

  • Traction pantograph systems
  • Electric train, or trams powered by the power system
  • Energy storage charging infrastructure
  • Impact of electric transport on the land-based power system
  • Vehicle-to-grid, grid-to-vehicle systems
  • Multi-vehicle charger system or roadside charger design, and control

Forms of electric transport of interest include road rail, air and water, and commercial personal, civil and military transport systems.
