Special Issue "Modeling and Control of Hybrid Electric Vehicles"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 May 2021).
Over the last several decades, there has been a great deal of research effort directed towards modeling and control for hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). Thanks to these efforts, we can now see a number of HEVs on the roads. The modeling and control technologies applied to HEVs have not only been utilized for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PEHVs) or extended-range electric vehicles (EREVs), but hybrid technologies like dual motors or dual energy storage systems are also implemented in battery electric vehicles (BEVs).
When it comes to the modeling techniques, new powertrain configurations are developed and optimized based on the model-centric environments, and high-fidelity models using multi-physics like thermal or electrical simulation tools help engineers to precisely evaluate the performance of HEVs. Further, data-driven controls, artificial intelligence, or connectivity concepts are gaining in interest among control engineers, while traditional optimal control concepts like dynamic programming (DP) or Pontryagin’s minimum principle (PMP) are becoming well-known approaches for energy management strategies.
This Special Issue welcomes novel research results related to modeling and control technologies for HEVs. Studies utilizing real-world data or obtained by using real-world advanced vehicles are also highly recommended for this Issue.Prof. Dr. Namwook Kim
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 2200 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.
