Call for papers: Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles

Call for papers: Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles

A special issue of International Journal of Alternative Propulsion

Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) offer the potential to dramatically decrease petroleum fuel consumption and improve energy efficiency. To successfully bring the technology to the market, several key issues need to be addressed such as component technologies, vehicle control, electric power grid, etc.

The aim of this special issue is to compile the state-of-the-art in plug-in HEVs. In particular, its looks to provide a forum for representing the most recent and innovative lines of research related to battery, vehicle modelling, vehicle dynamometer testing, fleet testing, electrical infrastructure and well-to-wheel. Both technical and economical aspects are relevant.

The research presented in the special issue will cover a range of issues and topics, including but not limited to:
  • Battery technology
  • Modelling and simulation
  • Control strategy
  • Vehicle dynamometer testing
  • Vehicle test procedure
  • Vehicle fleet testing
  • Cost
  • Well-to-wheel
  • Charger/infrastructure
Important Date
Manuscripts should be submitted no later than: 30 November 2007
