Future Powertrain Technologies

MDPI Special Issue “Future Powertrain Technologies”

Editor: Stephan Rinderknecht, Philippe Jardin und Arved Esser

Among the various factors greatly influencing the development process of future powertrain technologies, the trends in climate change and digitalization are of huge public interest. To handle these trends, new disruptive technologies are integrated into the development process. They open up space for diverse research which is distributed over the entire vehicle design process. This book contains recent research articles which incorporate results for selecting and designing powertrain topology in consideration of the vehicle operating strategy as well as results for handling the reliability of new powertrain components.
