Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The electrification of modern means of transportation is one of the most critical sectors affecting the global transition to a sustainable future. Recent advancements have been made and adopted into generalized electrified vehicles, which include not only road vehicles but also rolling stocks, marine vessels and other specialized industrial vehicles.

The main goal of this Special Issue is to publish new scientific knowledge relevant but not limited to the following topics:

  • New proposals for system-level transportation electrification for road, rail and maritime transportation applications;
  • Design, control and operational optimization of electrified traction and propulsion systems for electrified vehicles;
  • Advancements in powering, charging and energizing methodologies, including wireless power transfer, power-to-X, etc.;
  • Advancements in design and manufacturing of electric machine or other means of movement;
  • Design, detection, diagnosis, and prognosis regarding the resilience and reliability of electrified vehicles;

However, the inductance of the grid-side interface filter is affected by the length of the grid connection and the power level, which presents nonlinear characteristics.

Bi-directional DC-AC converters are widely used in the field of electric vehicle-to-grid. However, the inductance of the grid-side interface filter is affected by the length of the grid connection and the power level, which presents nonlinear characteristics. This poses challenges for high-performance grid waveform control. In this paper, a modeling method for bi-directional DC-AC grid-connected converters based on type-II T-S fuzzy models is proposed, and the corresponding type-II T-S fuzzy control strategy is designed to address the parameter uncertainty and non-linearity issues. Simulation results show that type-II T-S fuzzy control offers superior control performance and better current waveform quality compared to type-I T-S fuzzy control under uncertainty parameter conditions. The effectiveness of the proposed strategy is further validated through a 1 kW prototype of a bi-directional DC-AC converter. Full article

The lithium metal battery is likely to become the main power source for the future development of flying electric vehicles for its ultra-high theoretical specific capacity. In an attempt to study macroscopic battery performance and microscopic lithium deposition under different pressure conditions, we first conduct a pressure cycling test proving that amplifying the initial preload can delay the battery failure stage, and the scanning electron microscope (SEM) shows that the pressure is effective in improving the electrode’s surface structure. Secondly, we analyze how differing pressure conditions affect the topography of lithium deposits by coupling the nonlinear phase-field model with the force model. The results show that the gradual increase in the external pressure is accompanied by a drop in the length of the dendrite and the migration curvature in the diaphragm, and the deposition morphology is gradually geared towards smooth and thick development, which can significantly reduce the specific surface area of lithium dendrite. However, as cyclic charging and discharging continue, the decrease in the electrolyte diffusion coefficient results in higher internal stress inside the battery, and thus the external pressure must be increased so as to achieve marked inhibitory effects on the growth of the lithium dendrite.
