The latest Transportation Electrification research papers, working group reports and other valuable information are disseminated through a wide range of IEEE sponsored or produced publications.  These sources of information can be accessed through IEEE’s award winning content management system Xplore Digital Library. The content in IEEE Xplore comprises 151 journals, over 900 conference proceedings, more than 3,400 technical standards, over 400 ebooks and 200 educational courses. Approximately 25,000 new documents are added to IEEE Xplore each month.

Some of the current sources of Transportation Electrification within IEEE are:

IEEE Transactions on Transportation Electrification

IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS), IEEE Industry Applications Society (IAS), IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES), and IEEE Vehicular Technology Society (VTS) are financial co-sponsors and IEEE Industrial Electronics Society (IES) and IEEE Reliability Society (RS) are technical co-sponsors of the IEEE Transactions on Transportation Electrification (TTE). PELS is the lead administrative sponsor of TTE.

TTE is focused on components, sub-systems, systems, standards, and grid interface technologies related to power and energy conversion, propulsion, and actuation for all types of electrified vehicles including on-road, off-road, off-highway, and rail vehicles, airplanes, and ships.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to): hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs); plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs); electric vehicles (EVs); range-extended EVs; hybrid and electric powertrains; vehicular power electronics, electric machines, and motor drives; propulsion systems; electronic control units; charging stations; on-board and off-board chargers, fast chargers, and opportunity chargers; inductive charging; dynamic charging in roadways; vehicle-to-grid (V2G), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I), and vehicle-to-home (V2H) interfaces; grid interface technologies; utility issues related to plug-in vehicles and other grid-interactive transportation; vehicle-to-grid communication and control; vehicle connectivity modules; energy storage systems; batteries for mobile transport; battery management systems; mass transit/public transportation electrification; electrification of heavy-duty and off-road vehicles; electrified defense vehicles; electrification of trains and rail vehicles; electrification of sea, undersea, air, and space vehicles; applications of fuel cells in transportation; emissions and environmental impacts of transportation electrification; standards; and source-to-wheel (STW) energy and supply-chain analysis.


IEEE Electrification Magazine

IEEE Electrification Magazine is a quarterly magazine dedicated to disseminating information on all matters related to electrification in vehicles, ships, trains, planes and spacecraft, and off-grid applications including microgrids. Off-grid applications include small scale electricity supply in areas away from high voltage power networks. Microgrids include networks that provide secure power supply in both grid-connected and stand-alone modes. Feature articles in the magazine 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 issues such as business, environmental, and social concerns.


Electrical Systems in Transportation, IET

IET Electrical Systems in Transportation is aimed at all aspects of electrical power systems in modern transport applications including generation, storage, distribution and utilization. The scope extends to all sectors of transportation: aerospace, marine (including sub-sea), automotive or land-based and rail.


IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Magazine

IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Magazines publishes peer-reviewed articles that provide innovative research ideas and application results, report significant application case studies, and raise awareness of pressing research and application challenges in all areas of intelligent transportation systems and general information that is relevant to the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society, such as conference announcements, book reviews, and ITS-related standards.


IEEE The Institute (Special edition on Electric Vehicles)

The Institute is a member newsletter that features stories about IEEE activities, member profiles, conference information, important member dates and deadlines, IEEE election news, and career guidance.


IEEE Spectrum Magazine (EV Focused)

IEEE Spectrum is the world’s leading engineering and scientific magazine. Read by over 300,000 engineers worldwide, Spectrum provides international coverage of all technical issues and advances in computers, communications, and electronics. Written in clear, concise language for the non-specialist, Spectrum’s high editorial standards and worldwide resources ensure technical accuracy and state-of-the-art relevance.
