Electrical Power and Energy Systems for Transportation Applications

Paul Stewart, Chris Bingham
2016 Energies  
This book contains the successful invited submissions [1-25] to a Special Issue of Energies on the subject area of "Electrical Power and Energy Systems for Transportation Applications". Electrical power and energy systems are at the forefront of application developments in, for example, more-electric and all-electric aircraft, electric and hybrid road vehicles, and marine propulsion applications. The associated hardware, technologies, and control methods are crucial to achieving critical global

The greatest challenges occur when we combine new technologies at large-scale and often complex system levels. Topics of interest for the call included, but were not limited to: ' Novel Electrical Power Systems architectures and technologies; ' Energy vectors, integration with renewables, power and energy dense machines, converters and energy storage; ' Air, land, and sea vehicles; electrical propulsion and actuation for land, sea, and air vehicles; ' Electrical Machines, Drives, Systems, and Applications-AC and DC machines and drives; ' Multiscale systems modeling; remote monitoring and diagnosis; ' Power Electronic Systems-Converters and emerging technologies; ' Modeling simulation and control, reliability and fault tolerance, safety critical operation; ' Electrical Power Generation Systems-Modeling and simulation of electrical power systems; ' Load management; power quality; distribution reliability; distributed and islanded power systems, sensor networks, communication and control; ' Electrical Power Systems Modeling and Control-Modeling and control methodologies and applications; ' Intelligent systems; optimization and advanced heuristics; adaptive systems; robust control. Response to our call was excellent, with the following statistics: ' Submissions: (101);
