Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Electric energy and hydrogen energy are some of the most promising renewable energy applications, and the development of hybrid electric vehicles, electric vehicles, and fuel cell vehicles has become a research hotspot. With the deepening of research, some emerging technologies can also be gradually applied in research related to new energy vehicles. This Special Issue is open to researchers, engineers, and students worldwide whose work focuses on new energy vehicle-related fields. Authors are welcome to publish original research papers describing theoretical development, system applications, and algorithm demonstrations. Potential topics include, but are not limited to: new energy vehicle technology; energy management strategies; association algorithms between new energy vehicles and traffic information; application of computer vision, reinforcement learning, deep learning, etc., in new energy vehicles; new energy vehicle control algorithms; development of motor control strategies in new energy vehicles; and battery management systems.

Abstract
Equivalent combustion natural gas engines typically utilize exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) systems to tackle their high thermal burden and NOx emissions. Variable nozzle turbochargers (VNT) can increase the engine intake and EGR rate simultaneously, resulting in NOx reduction while ensuring robust power performance. [...] Read more.
Equivalent combustion natural gas engines typically utilize exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) systems to tackle their high thermal burden and NOx emissions. Variable nozzle turbochargers (VNT) can increase the engine intake and EGR rate simultaneously, resulting in NOx reduction while ensuring robust power performance. Using a VNT along with engine bench testing, the impact of VNT- and EGR-coordinated control on the performance and emissions of equivalent combustion natural gas engines was investigated under different operating conditions. Subsequently, multi-objective optimization was performed using a support vector machine. The results demonstrated that the use of VNTs in equivalent combustion natural gas engines could bolster the capacity to introduce EGR under several operative conditions and extend the scope of EGR regulation, thereby decreasing the engine’s thermal burden, improving fuel efficiency, and curbing emissions. Owing to the implementation of a multi-objective optimization method based on a support vector regression model and NSGA-II genetic algorithm, VNT and EGR control parameters could be optimized to slightly improve the economy and significantly reduce NOx emissions while maintaining the original engine power performance. At 20 operating points optimized for validation, brake-specific fuel consumption (BSFC) and NOx decreased by 0.94% and 47.0%, respectively, and CH4 increased by 3.7%, on average. Full article
