As I write these words, the events that occurred in Japan are occupying the world's attention. Our sympathies go out to the people of Japan who are enduring the results of the catastrophic earthquake, tsunami, and subsequent failures at the Tokyo Ele

The U.S. transportation sector consumes approximately 14 million barrels of petroleum every day, which is more than the total oil consumption of any other nation in the world. The most prominent sustainable solution to profoundly reduce both oil cons

The papers in this special section focus on the modeling and control of electrified vehicles and transportation services. Electrified vehicles, such as battery electric vehicles, hybrid electric vehicles, and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, expedit

The AC power supply systems represent one of the most considered technical solutions for high-speed railway lines. This paper analyses these systems by utilization of numerical simulation models, to determine current voltage and power flows under rea

Electric power take-off system has gained significant popularity in automobiles and aircraft. The system requires a high-gain step-up converter to boost the voltage of the low-voltage batteries. A novel topology has been proposed for these applicatio
