Description

Vehicular Electric Power Systems: Land, Sea, Air, and Space Vehicles acquaints professionals with trends and challenges in the development of more electric vehicles (MEVs) using detailed examples and comprehensive discussions of advanced MEV power system architectures, characteristics, and dynamics. The authors focus on real-world applications and highlight issues related to system stability as well as challenges faced during and after implementation.

Probes innovations in the development of more electric vehicles for improved maintenance, support, endurance, safety, and cost-efficiency in automotive, aerospace, and marine vehicle engineering

Heralding a new wave of advances in power system technology, Vehicular Electric Power Systems discusses:

  • Different automotive power systems including conventional automobiles, more electric cars, heavy-duty vehicles, and electric and hybrid electric vehicles

  • Electric and hybrid electric propulsion systems and control strategies

  • Aerospace power systems including conventional and advanced aircraft, spacecraft, and the international space station

  • Sea and undersea vehicles

  • The modeling, real-time state estimation, and stability assessment of vehicular power systems

  • Applications of fuel cells in various land, sea, air, and space vehicles

  • Modeling techniques for energy storage devices including batteries, fuel cells, photovoltaic cells, and ultracapacitors

  • Advanced power electronic converters and electric motor drives for vehicular applications

  • Guidelines for the proper design of DC and AC distribution architectures
  • Reviews

    "Lecture transcripts include some experimental data and, as always with this series, provide a wealth of information not readily available elsewhere….last volume is recommended to all chemists interest in catalyzing organic reactions. A copy should be in all industrial libraries."

    Organic Process Research & Development, September, 2005

    "…excellent reviews of proposed technology…excellent way for an engineer, manager, or student in the area of electric vehicle propulsion and power systems to learn about new technologies and road block issues."

    IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, 2005
