Modern transportation is on the verge of transition in response to the climate change and resource scarcity, witnessed by the readily proactive deployment of electrical vehicles, vessels and aircrafts, with strong growth foreseeable in the coming decades. This is enabled by the far going advances in energy storage techniques toward higher volumetric and gravimetric energy densities. A major challenge haunting this trend is the development of electric propulsion system with low cost, light weight and high reliability. This vision motivates the design and control of high efficiency power electronics due to their enabling role in energy storage integration. The optimized interface between energy storage devices and power electronic components is critical for the system level performance with respect to the space/weight limitation, efficiency, and reliability. Moreover, the safety and longevity of onboard energy storage system directly determine the performance of electric propulsion system. Hence, high fidelity diagnostic, management and control of energy storage systems are highly desired, even though this can be extremely challenging. To this end, recent progresses in artificial intelligence, cyber physics and digital twin can bring some new ideas and promising solutions for the future smart management of energy storage system. We encourage all researchers working in this area to submit papers to this Special Section.
