Innovative Drivetrains for Electrified Vehicles

Co-chair: Walter Lhomme, University of Lille, MEGEVH network, France
Co-chair: Florian Verbelen, Ghent University, FlandersMake-UGent, Belgium

Call For Papers

Vehicle manufacturers encounter an ever-growing pressure to reduce fuel consumption and emissions, because of increasingly stringent regulations. As a result, they are forced to innovate to find new solu-tions which can assist in reaching the climate goals. During the last decades, intermediate solutions to electrify the Internal Combustion Engine (ICE)-based vehicles, such as Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV), have been developed, waiting for the total maturity of Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) and Fuel Cell Elec-tric Vehicles (FCEV). According to EARPA (European Automotive Research Partners Association), the three pillars of the electrified vehicles to tackle are 1) energy storage systems, 2) drivetrain technology and 3) vehicle integration. In this special session, focus is on innovative drivetrains driven for BEV, HEV and FCEV. The applications are both light-duty vehicles and heavy-duty vehicles, such as trucks and buses. This special session is open to any contributors to share various experiences.

Topics of interest include:

  • Multiple-speed gearbox;
  • Multiple, multiphase and in-wheel electric drives;
  • Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT);
  • Electric Variable Transmission (EVT);
  • Electric Continuously Variable Transmission (eCVT) using planetary geartrain;
  • High efficiency drivetrains;
  • Local control and energy management strategy;
  • Component design, modelling, simulation…

Applications of interest: Applications are both light-duty vehicles and heavy-duty vehicles, such as trucks and buses.

All special session digests must be prepared and submitted in the same way as those for the conference regular tracks, except that the corresponding special session should be identified during submission.

Submission Deadline: 15 April 2020
