About This Topic

This special issue focuses on compiling studies and research on the recent advances regarding developing battery technologies aimed at the higher driving range of electric vehicles, faster charging rate, improved efficiency, higher reliability, and safety. Contributions must show significant novelties regarding the structure and manufacturing technology of electric batteries, and technological advances enhancing their performance. We accept scientific and technical papers representing a relevant contribution to the battery industry in aspects related to battery autonomy, faster cycling, increased discharge rate, larger capacity and skillfulness to respond to sudden changes in working conditions, warranting safety in their use and that of the equipped vehicles. We also accept research and review articles with significant contributions to the battery structure and components that increase specific power and energy, technology improvements in the hybridization systems making the energy deliverance more efficient, and new techniques in the operational mode to raise available capacity and power supply. Articles based on testing and experimental procedures are also welcome, provided they fulfill the goals mentioned before to improve the global performance of electric batteries.
