MISSION STATEMENT: IEEE Electrification Magazine is dedicated to disseminating information on
all matters related to microgrids onboard electric
vehicles, ships, trains, planes, and off-grid applications. Microgrids refer to an electric network in a
car, a ship, a plane or an electric train, which has a
limited number of sources and multiple loads. Offgrid applications include small scale electricity supply in areas away from high voltage power networks. Feature articles focus on advanced concepts, technologies, and practices associated with
all aspects of electrification in the transportation
and off-grid sectors from a technical perspective in
synergy with nontechnical areas such as business,
environmental, and social concerns.
