Special issue on electric machines and systems: design, analysis, and control

This special issue of the International Journal for Computation and Mathematics in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (COMPEL) includes the extended and improved versions of a selection of 13 papers among 125 presented during the Eighth International Conference and Exhibition on Ecological Vehicles and Renewable Energies (EVER’13, March 27-30, 2013).

Hosted by the principality of Monaco, EVER’13 was a forum of specialists coming from both universities and industries, involved in R&D projects in the area of ecological vehicles or of renewable energies or of both. They have had the opportunity to share their scientific, technical, business and social experiences with other attendees coming from more than 34 countries, through the presentation and the discussion of their recent works in 17 sessions scheduled in the final program of EVER’13.

Following its resubmission to the website of COMPEL (www://, each selected paper has been the subject of a re-review process involving at least two specialists. The published papers could be classified under an overall topic, that is: “Electric Machines and Systems: Design, Analysis, and Control” with applications in automotive as well as in renewable generating systems.

I would like to express my gratitude to HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco for his endless support to EVER-Monaco Conferences. I would like to present my congratulations to his Excellency Bernard Fautrier, Plenipotentiary Minister of Monaco and General Chairman of EVER’13, for his continuous encouragement. I would like to thank my colleagues members of the Program Committee Chairman of EVER-Monaco Conferences, for their efforts in selecting and re-reviewing the published papers.

I would like to express my truthful acknowledgments to Professor Jan K. Sykulski, the Editor in Chief of COMPEL, and to the Staff of the Emerald Group Publishing Limited especially to Mrs Kay Wilkinson, Ms Andrea Watson-Lee, and Ms Abi Masha for their inestimable cooperation.

Finally, I could not forget that EVER’13 was a great success thanks to the efforts of the local organizing committee especially its chairman Mrs Ariane Favaloro for whom I would like to express my sincere gratitude.
