To address the two urgent issues nowadays of protecting the environment and achieving energy sustainability, it is of strategic importance on a global scale to replace oil-dependent vehicles with electric drive vehicles (EDVs). Numerical simulation and optimization are essential to simulate the actual hardware and minimize the development procedure and cost. Accurate and efficient modeling, control, and optimization technologies have been the indispensable tools. EDVs have been continuously improved owing to the advancement of systematic control and power management, energy systems, batteries, and pack technologies, as well as economic and policy incentives, public awareness of energy sustainability/affordability, and environmental concerns. The primary goal of this special section is to provide timely solutions to technological and economic challenges in modeling, simulation, control, and optimization of EDVs. The accepted papers cover a range of different aspects of modeling, control, and optimization technologies for electric vehicles.
