    The capabilities of peak power and continuous power are the main concerns for electrified vehicles. To achieve good acceleration on uphill climbing, improved peak power density is necessary. The motor's peak power is determined by the maximum allowable temperature of the motor package. If the temperature at peak output power can be kept low, then a higher peak power is achieved. The major purpose ... View full abstract»

    Traditionally, petroleum (oil) has been the main source of energy for the U.S. national economy and transportation sector. In 2010, 83% of all the energy required by the United States was provided by fossil fuel sources. The energy use in the United States can be divided into four broad sectors: transportation, residential, commercial, and industrial. The transportation sector accounts for 28% of ...

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.
