To enable the sustainable development of complex modern transportation systems, the storage of electrical energy is crucial. This is particularly true given the rapid developments made for electric transportation services in smart cities, and the demand for interaction between different transport systems. This book presents tools to design such an energy management system, following a generic approach; this includes the deployment of smart electric power grids, services for the storage of electrical energy, and the use of artificial intelligence and explicit optimization methods. The use of these methods is explored through various case studies: more efficient electrification of aircraft, the development of hybrid autonomous vehicles and locomotives, and more efficient integration of road and railway transports in the electrical grid.
In combining industrial theory and practice, this book appeals as a reference to engineers and researchers working in the field of electrical energy management.


1. Issues in Electrical Energy Storage for Transport Systems.
2. Local DC Grid with Energy Exchange for Applications in Aviation.
3. Electric and Hybrid Vehicles.
4. Railway System: Diesel–Electric Hybrid Power Train.
5. Railway System: Hybrid Railway Power Substation.
