AUTE 3290U – Powertrain Design


This course introduces the fundamental design principles, general design procedures, typical constructional arrangements, and basic parameter selection of essential components and subsystems of automotive powertrains. Topics covered include evaluation of various power plant and driveline characteristics on vehicle acceleration performance and fuel economy, manual transmission design, automatic transmission design. The principles of electrical and hybrid electrical vehicle propulsion systems will also be introduced. Students will develop the ability to design typical automotive powertrain components and subsystems through selecting appropriate constructions and determining basic design variables based on design principles, physical laws, legislations, criteria and constraints. Some design experience will be gained by completing required laboratory reports and design projects.
