Khaligh Guest Edits Special Issue of IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology

Alireza Khaligh (ECE/ISR) is one of three guest editors of the “Special Proceeding” October 2012 issue of IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology. The issue focuses on Sustainable Transportation Systems.

The past few decades have seen a dramatic increase in the number of vehicles being used around the globe. This has resulted in an increased demand for energy and raised serious concerns over decreasing conventional fossil-fuel-based energy sources, in addition to environmental concerns. These issues have been a major driving force toward the electrification of the transportation industry for a sustainable transportation infrastructure.

This Special Section intends to focus on state of the art research and development, as well as future trends in the modeling, design, control, and optimization of advanced power electronics, energy storage, motor drives, and power train systems for future sustainable transportation systems.
