IJPT addresses novel scientific/technological results contributing to advancing powertrain technology, from components/subsystems to system integration/controls. Focus is primarily but not exclusively on ground vehicle applications. IJPT's perspective is largely inspired by the fact that many innovations in powertrain advancement are only possible due to synergies between mechanical design, mechanisms, mechatronics, controls, networking system integration, etc. The science behind these is characterised by physical phenomena across the range of physics (multiphysics) and scale of motion (multiscale) governing the behaviour of components/subsystems.

 



 Topics covered include

  • Design/modelling/dynamics/control of engines/transmissions/drivelines
  • Energy management strategies for multi-modes of propulsion
    • e.g hybrid powertrains
  • Innovative energy efficient/environment friendly technologies
    • e.g. plug-in systems
  • Advanced energy conversion, including
    • fuel energy conversion, onboard energy storage/generation
  • Electric drive systems incl. motors/generators/invertors/power electronics
  • Powertrain integration/control/optimisation/diagnostics/prognostics
  • Networked systems
  • Software development for powertrain control; real-time simulation
  • Experimental investigations, model validation
  • Component and powertrain-in-the-loop techniques
  • Advanced engine technology, advanced techniques in emission reductions
  • Analysis/assessment of impact on energy utilisation and environment

Objectives

The overarching objective of IJPT is to provide a unique and effective channel within which ground-breaking collaborative research findings in the powertrain area are archived and discussed. The journal will emphasise the potential of advanced emerging powertrain systems to achieve significant improvements in fuel economy, emissions, reliability, durability, drivability, robustness and cost efficiency. The journal will also recognize the rapidly growing complexity of powertrain systems, and the seamless integration between their various hardware and software components. This creates the need for a journal that addresses complex powertrain engineering issues in a synergistic way with emphasis on the potential of innovations in multiple disciplines to pave the road towards novel powertrain architectures and technologies.


Readership

IJPT provides a means to help professionals, academics, researchers and policy makers, working in the field of vehicle and powertrain engineering, analysis, research and development, to disseminate information and exchange views on recent advances in the field.


Contents

IJPT publishes original papers, technology reviews, technical reports, case studies, conference reports, and book reviews. Special issues devoted to important topics and developments in the powertrain area will be published on a regular basis.
