Special Issue on: "Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles"

Guest Editor: Aymeric Rousseau, Argonne National Laboratory, USA

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.

Subject Coverage
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
