The transportation sector is responsible for more than one third of the global fossil fuel utilization and accordingly plays a vital role in greenhouse gas emissions. Regarding the recent increase in the awareness for a cleaner and sustainable supply of energy for this sector, the electrification of transportation has become a topic of wide interest both for the academy and the industry especially in the last two decades. Even though this electrification process may hinder vital drawbacks from the environmental point-of-view, the acceptance of these gridable and sustainable transportation system in the power system may pose different challenges especially with the possible growing number of such applications. Therefore, different scales of such transportation solutions should also be well-studied from power system perspective and this special issue awaits papers in this manner to propose different concepts in this manner.

Topics include the following:

  • Energy quality improvement oriented solutions for the effective grid integration of new generation transportation systems
  • Energy management systems for structures including gridable and sustainable transportation systems
  • Forecasting methods for effective prediction of gridable transportation loads for operational and planning oriented studies regarding power systems
  • Grid connection of maritime systems via smart port design
  • Grid connection of new generation railway systems
  • Grid connection of different levels of road transportation solutions from micromobility to heavy duty applications
  • Novel power electronics based solutions to enhance effective grid connection of sustainable transportation systems


The special issue also welcomes high-quality research and review papers on these and related topics.

All papers will go through a rigorous peer-review process and automated plagiarism checks. Papers must be formatted according to the specifications and limits of the Turkish Journal of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences. This (non-paid) open access journal is indexed in Science Citation Index - Expanded (SCI-E).
