    Electrification of railway systems becomes a very tricky topic when designing overhead contact lines (OCLs). This article highlights the strong dependence of the mechanical design on the railway electrification. Indeed, only the high sensitivity of the quality of service to the mechanical performance of the OCL can explain the complex designs of the existing railway lines. The interoperability fra...

    Fortunately, Japan's big cities have embraced electrified railways as a major method of transportation since the early 20th century. According to the results of Japanese government research, electric railways convey more than 90% of the total person trips of the whole railway system, which carries about 30% of all the person trips in Japan (with the remainder carried 54% by car, 7% by bus, and 7% ...

    The concept of electrified vehicles (EVs) is the best old "new" idea that has been around for the last century. Designs have changed to make EVs popular, but until now, no design has captured the public's imagination or gained market traction. This is because consumers need more than facts about EVs; they need to be wooed into making a bigger commitment to the EV. The winning combination of making... View full abstract»

    This article presents an overview of the present art of low-voltage (LV) dc power distribution system protection using solid-state protective devices (SSPDs). It describes how IGBTand IGCT-based SSPDs are constructed and how the important feature of galvanic isolation can be included in them. The article outlines the advantages of SSPDs, which include reduced fault-current level, greatly reduced c... View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

IEEE Electrification Magazine is dedicated to disseminating information on all matters related to microgrids onboard electric vehicles, ships, trains, planes, and off-grid applications. Microgrids refer to an electric network in a car, a ship, a plane or an electric train, which has a limited number of sources and multiple loads. Off-grid applications include small scale electricity supply in areas away from high voltage power networks. Feature articles focus on advanced concepts, technologies, and practices associated with all aspects of electrification in the transportation and off-grid sectors from a technical perspective in synergy with nontechnical areas such as business, environmental, and social concerns.
