Electric Vehicles (EVs), Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs), and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs) are potential layouts to achieve the consolidated trend of electrification in the automotive sector. The design, modelling, and control strategies play a crucial role in optimizing the performance, efficiency, and reliability of these vehicles. This Special Issue of the World Journal of Electric Vehicles aims to explore the latest advancements in the field of EV, HEV, and FCEV design, modelling, and control, providing a platform for researchers to share their innovative ideas and findings.
This Special Issue welcomes original research papers, review articles, and case studies related to various aspects of EV, HEV, and FCEV design, modelling, and control strategies. Potential topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Advanced powertrain architectures and configurations for EVs, HEVs, and FCEVs;
- Optimal battery sizing, placement, and management strategies;
- Modeling and simulation techniques for EV, HEV, and FCEV components and systems;
- Control algorithms for improving energy efficiency and range of EVs and HEVs;
- Control algorithms related to other vehicle objectives (handling, safety, thermal management);
- Vehicle-to-grid (V2G) integration and smart charging strategies;
- Thermal management and cooling strategies for e-powertrain and battery systems;
- Lightweight and structural solutions for battery, e-powertrain, and vehicle design;
- Safety and reliability aspects of EV systems;
- Economic and environmental considerations of EV, HEV, and FCEV technologies;
- Other innovative technologies on mobility related to electrification.
Authors are encouraged to present their research findings, innovative methodologies, and practical applications in the field of hybrid and electric vehicles. Submissions should adhere to the guidelines provided by the World Journal of Electric Vehicles.
We look forward to receiving high-quality contributions that will advance the understanding and development of design, modelling, and control strategies for hybrid and electric vehicles.
