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. Off-grid 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.
