Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Transportation electrification has been widely identified as a promising solution to combat environmental pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. The gradual popularization of electric vehicles will contribute to a green transportation network that helps to reduce carbon footprint and promote carbon neutrality. Ever-growing traffic burdens and high infrastructure costs will challenge the future development of ground transportation. Electric ships and more electric aircraft will enter the arena of modern transportation and open a new chapter in commercial deployment throughout the coming decades.

This Special Issue will focus on the advanced technologies for electrified transportation. In particular, there are four competitive advances in recent years: (1) high torque density of machines and magnetic differentials for electric launch; (2) high energy density and accurate health diagnostics of energy storage systems for durable cruise; (3) high convenience and high efficiency of energy refueling and regenerating technologies during operation; and (4) high reliability of advanced control for battery charging, motor drives, and power electronics. In this context, prospective authors are invited to submit their original contributions, surveys, or tutorial papers in the above areas.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Advances in electric vehicles, electric ships, and more electric aircraft;
  • High-torque-density and high-power-density electric machines;
  • Highly fault-tolerant and high-efficiency electric motor drives;
  • Electronic and magnetic differentials;
  • Advanced energy sources and storage systems;
  • Battery charging, management, and health diagnostics;
  • Wireless power transfer technologies;
  • Power electronics technologies for electric and hybrid propulsions;
  • Advanced control strategies for electric and hybrid propulsions.

This paper presents the modular topologies of the dual-stator dual-winding permanent magnet (PM) linear motors for linear compressors used in the electrified transportation application. Compared to the conventional PM linear motor in compressor, the proposed modular model is designed with the same volume but a higher thrust force density and a further higher air pressure in air cylinder, which are competitive in the compressor industry. The proposed compact PM linear motors are constructed with tubular windings in both inner and outer stators, as well as the ring-type magnet in mover. Simulation results of motor characteristics are compared by three-dimensional finite element method (3D FEM). Finally, the prototypes of the proposed PM linear motors are manufactured and tested for the linear compressor application. Full article

This paper proposes a multi-virtual-vector model predictive control (MPC) for a dual three-phase permanent magnet synchronous machine (DTP-PMSM), which aims to regulate the currents in both fundamental and harmonic subspace. Apart from the fundamental α-β subspace, the harmonic subspace termed x-y is decoupled in multiphase PMSM according to vector space decomposition (VSD). Hence, the regulation of x-y currents is of paramount importance to improve control performance. In order to take into account both fundamental and harmonic subspaces, this paper presents a multi-virtual-vector model predictive control (MVV-MPC) scheme to significantly improve the steady performance without affecting the dynamic response. In this way, virtual vectors are pre-synthesized to eliminate the components in the x-y subspace and then a vector with adjustable phase and amplitude is composed of two effective virtual vectors and a zero vector. As a result, an enhanced current tracking ability is acquired due to the expanded output range of the voltage vector. Lastly, both simulation and experimental results are given to confirm the feasibility of the proposed MVV-MPC for DTP-PMSM. Full article
