Miniaturization, lightening of weight, and high reliability of traction systems are required for energy saving, running distance improvement, and lifetime extension. New switching devices (Silicon Carbide), the permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM), and new power converter/inverter topologies with high-efficiency control schemes have contributed to achieve the needs. This Special Issue focuses on the analysis, design, and implementation of high-power electric traction systems for miniaturization, lightening of weight, and high reliability.
Topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:
- Control of traction inverter
- Motor drive schemes for traction system
- New topology for high-power traction system
- Reliability of traction systems
- High voltage silicon carbide (SiC)
- Battery or hydrogen-powered traction systems
- Tolerant control of traction system under faults

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
