"Advanced transportation systems"

Abstract

PDF format: click here

Advanced electric drive traction and propulsion systems are being developed in order to ensure better energy performance for the future transportation systems such as electric vehicles (EVs), hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) and advanced tractions and propulsions for trains, subways, ships, and airplanes. The research and development aims at reducing energy consumption and pollutant emissions in order to contribute to addressing the climate challenge.
In order to further promote excellence of research in vehicle power and propulsion, in conjunction with the 6th annual IEEE Vehicle Power and Propulsion Conference (VPPC 2010), a special section in the IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology will be published to focus on state-of-the-art research and development as well as future trends in the modeling, design, control, and optimization of advanced power and propulsion systems for future transportation systems. Papers studying only power components, power electronics, and/or devices will NOT be considered since this special section is focused on system-level issues.
Potential authors are invited to submit an original paper for consideration to publish in the special section. A thorough peer review will be conducted to select top papers for this special section. Papers presented at the VPPC 2010 are eligible for consideration to be included in this special section. However, please note that IEEE requires that a journal submission offer substantial novel contributions beyond the previous work in a conference paper (substantial change).

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
Design, modeling, and simulation of vehicles,
Energy management and control of vehicles,
Electric, hybrid electric, plug-in hybrid electric, and fuel cell vehicles, and
Railway, subway, ships, and aerospace applications.

Relevant references

The reference section of your paper is a key point. It is important that the authors show a good recognition of the state-of-the-art in the subject area. Some transactions will usually expect a minimum of 20 references, primarily to recent journal papers (25 references for each paper should be more common). Citations of textbooks and web pages should be used very rarely. If there is doubt about the scope of the manuscript the editor may recommend resubmission of the manuscript to other journals for which the manuscript has the most references.

This section gives non-exhaustive references on "Energy and future transportation systems" from IEEE TVT. Of course other relevant references are welcome!
