Transportation electrification is the main solution to tackle the mounting climate change issues. Management of thermal and electric flows in electrified vehicles (EV) is critical to maximizing energy efficiency and maintaining safe and healthy vehicle operations. This would be achieved through 1) optimal design of thermal management systems including active cooling systems and waste heat recovery systems for batteries, power electronics, and electric motors; and 2) optimal control of battery management system, thermal management system, and powertrain energy management systems. Artificial intelligence (AI) has been demonstrated the strong capability of solving optimization problems, and further research into AI-based systems managing EV thermal and electric flows is necessary. The special session aims to collect state-of-the-art research on intelligent control and management of EV thermal and electric flows. We will invite 5-10 researchers around the world to submit their contributions and join the discussions on outlook and future research directions.
