Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles(PHEVs) and Hybrid Vehicles (HEVs) have received a significant interest in transport industry towards energy-efficient powertrains.These promising vehicles not only significantly improve the fuel economy, but also reduce the greenhouse emissions in transport sector.Today, the commercialization of PHEVs and HEVs has been possible due to the advances in energy-storage systems, power electronics converters, electric machines, control strategies and transmission systems.
This Special Issue (SI) is focused on the recent advances in plug-in electric and hybrid vehicles that address the new vehicular developments and go beyond the state of the art.
Prospective authors are invited to submit original contributions/ articles for review and for possible publication in this SI. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Architecture of HEV and PHEV;
- Novel propulsion systems;
- Advanced power electronics interfaces and their control algorithms;
- Emerging electric machines and control techniques;
- EVT and E-CVT for HEVs and PHEVs;
- Energy systems for HEVs;
- Energy storage technologies;
- Battery management systems;
- Energy management strategies for HEVs and PHEVs;
- Design optimization for HEVs and PHEVs;
- Integrated design methodologies;
- Vehicle-to- grid, vehicle-to-home, vehicle-to –vehicle technologies;;
- Contactless energy transfer system for PHEVs;
- Impact of electric vehicles on low-voltage supply systems;
- Environmental and socio-economical aspects of electromobility (LCA, TCO)
