Special Issue "Battery Management for Electric Vehicles"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 March 2021.
Interests: control applications; intelligent vehicles; battery management; state estimation; rapid prototyping; duty cycle testing; thermal management; lithium-sulfur batteries
Battery management plays a vital role in vehicle electrification, providing functions such as state estimation, thermal management, safe operation, fault detection and prognosis, and general housekeeping functions. Good battery management offers the potential to push cells built using the best available materials technologies as close as possible to their operational limits. Many disciplines are involved, including modeling, software and algorithms, mechanical engineering, estimation theory, computer science, and control.
This Special Issue is a dedicated outlet for up-to-date research on all aspects of battery management. Theoretical papers, practical studies and new methods are welcome, and we would particularly like to encourage papers that bridge the gap between theoretical research and practical deployment, and also those that bring in cross-disciplinary insights from outside the traditional battery domain. Review papers that bring particularly helpful insights and capture up-to-date technological landscapes are also welcome.
Topics of particular interest include (but are not limited to):
- Algorithms for estimation of state of charge, health and function;
- Advanced methods from control and estimation theory;
- Advanced methods from computer science, including artificial intelligence and machine learning;
- Dynamic temperature measurement and control;
- Deployment of advanced sensing technologies;
- Applications of novel power electronics and switching strategies;
- Physics-driven and data-driven prognostics and diagnostics;
- Battery management for batteries within hybrid energy storage systems;
- Fault-tolerant architectures and fault management strategies;
- Benchmark data sources describing cell performance at extreme limits;
- Safety management and certification.

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. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1800 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.
