AUTE 4080U – Electric and Hybrid Vehicles


The concepts, principles, analysis and design procedures for electric and hybrid vehicles are covered. Power plant type, electric drive train configurations, power flow, torque and speed coupling options being employed are discussed and analyzed. Energy storage systems are examined for their performance aspects in terms of specific energy and power capability, operating cycles, cost and thermal management requirements. The resulting impact of electrification on vehicle fuel economy, net emissions, life-cycle and infrastructure implication for society are also detailed. Techniques are learned and employed regarding the powertrain sizing problem, including battery pack configuration and its scaling for energy and power needs, selection of driveline components to meet regenerative braking and acceleration performance.
