About the book

This book aims to focus on the detailed analysis of electric and hybrid vehicles considering assemblies like the power supply, the power electronics, the charging, and energy management, simulation and testing of the vehicles and grid-friendly smart connections as well. Advanced analysis of each sub-assembly or complex multilevel analysis of the entire vehicle via simulations or experimental testing aims to give the book a unique character. The aspects of design, simulation, and testing of several components or concepts within the environment of EV/HEV are nowadays hot topics in the field of electrical engineering. Gathering this information into one book will become a hands-on reference for future designers or researchers.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Mateo Pulko

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
