Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Hybrid energy systems represent a promising sustainable power generation solution in various transportation systems. Optimal designs of hybrid energy systems are crucial, but this is a challenging process because of technoeconomic and environmental aspects that have to be considered. The optimization of the configuration, operation, real-time energy management, control and predictive optimization of hybrid energy systems has to be supported by methodologies and techniques that accurately describe these systems in reality. Further research into hybrid energy systems is necessary to achieve technical, economic, and design objectives. This Special issue aims to present the latest research about the design, modeling, optimization, environmental and technoeconomic assessment of hybrid energy systems, as well as recommendations for future work and research directions for optimal hybrid energy system performance and commercialization.

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

  • Design, system engineering, and field applications of hybrid energy systems;
  • Modeling, simulation, testing, and verification of hybrid energy systems;
  • Performance and control of hybrid energy systems;
  • Ageing modeling and lifetime prediction;
  • Solid-state battery technology;
  • Hydrogen fuel cell technology;
  • Fuel cell hybrid electrical vehicle;
  • Alternative fuels and their technology;
  • Machine learning, big data, and cloud computing in hybrid energy systems applications;
  • Real-time energy management and predictive optimization methodologies;
  • Monitoring and predictive maintenance of hybrid energy systems;
  • Technoeconomic and environmental assessment of hybrid energy systems;
  • Advances in hybrid energy technologies.

Hybrid electric vehicles are certainly one of the key solutions for improving fuel efficiency and reducing emissions, especially in terms of special vehicles and with the use of CO2-neutral fuels. Determining the energy management strategy and finding the optimal solution with regard to the aforementioned goals remains one of the main challenges in the design of HEVs. This paper presents a new vehicle modeling method, with an emphasis on HEVs, which is based on the frequency analysis of emissions and consumption according to the current specific traction power of the vehicle. An evaluation of the newly introduced model in the RDE, NEDC and WLTP cycle was performed, and the results were compared with the standard verified vehicle model that was created in AVL’s CruiseM R2021.2 software package. Positive traction energies have positive deviations of between 0.35% and 2.85%. The largest deviation in CO2 emissions was recorded for the HEV model in the RDE cycle and in the non-hybrid model in the WLTP cycle and were 3.79% and 4.4%, respectively. All other combinations of cycle and vehicles had deviations of up to about 1%. As expected, the largest relative deviations were recorded for NOx emissions and ranged from 0.13% to 9.62% for HEVs in the WLTP cycle. Full article
