    Alternative means for a basic electricity service are needed for the world's off-grid communities. Reliable access to electricity is widely regarded as a keystone to overcoming poverty, dramatically enhancing quality of life, and encouraging sustainable community prosperity. Such access is necessary to achieve other benefits such as education, public-health services or lean water and sanitation, a... View full abstract»

    Power grids are supposed to be fault-tolerant, but you doubt the premise when you consider daily outages in more populated parts of the world and more recent brownouts and blackouts globally. Power engineers have been pushing forward the frontiers of power systems, and the hard-fought battle against the darkness is supposed to have been won, but the struggle is by no means over. Indeed, the electr... View full abstract»

    The 21st century electric power grid is transforming with an unprecedented increase in demand and increase in new technologies. In the United States Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, Title XIII sets the tenets for modernizing the electricity grid through what is known as the "Smart Grid Initiative". This initiative calls for increased design, deployment, and integration of distributed ... View full abstract»

    The U.S. Army has been pursuing efforts to achieve better fuel economy in its ground vehicles to reduce the overall fuel-related logistic burden as well as enable cost savings. In military applications, depending on the destination to which fuel needs to be carried and the way it is carried (i.e., by ground, air, ship, etc.), the cost per gallon of fuel can be in the range of US$1,000 in certain c...

    There is not much research reported directly related to flying cars. there has been, however, a lot of independent research related to ground vehicles and aerial vehicles. Since the flying car can be considered a car with the ability of a helicopter, most of the work being done on road and air vehicles could be applied to flying cars. With the advancement of technologies in the area of power elect... 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.
