Transportation electrification is a need and Enabling Technologies play an important and critical role in their success. With the rapid demand and development of more electric vehicles, there is a critical need to assess and prepare for the impact of these technologies on transportation and development as a whole. However, developments in transportation also create new challenges for enabling technologies, infrastructure, impact on public and grid. Driven by the demand to reduce the cost and enhance the performance of on-the-move electrical energy technologies for transportation electrification, such as more electric aircraft, electric vehicles, rail, the industry is moving towards applications with more power electronics. High power density and reliable converters are critical enablers for the transportation industry to unlock significant improvements in system weight, operation life and energy consumption. This special issue aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from industry, laboratories, academia and government to present the challenges and opportunities related to transportation electrification systems.
