Note: Last day of class ends at approximately 12:30 pm Electric and hybrid vehicles are still relatively new products and are undergoing developmental refinements as the technology moves towards maturity. There are challenges related to the fundamentals of the technologies, the availability of various materials and sub-systems, cost targets and customer demands. The technology is complex and multi-disciplinary involving system integration of diverse components. This course will cover the interdisciplinary aspects of electric and hybrid vehicles where engineers of various disciplines have to work together to develop the system.

The influx of different hybrid and electric vehicle configurations has brought about unique NVH challenges from a variety of sources. NVH refinement is an important aspect of powertrain development and the vehicle integration process. While developing the NVH behavior of the vehicle is critical to satisfy customer expectations, it is also important to consider the influence of reduced exterior noise levels on pedestrian safety.

Hybrids, and to a lesser extent, electric vehicles, have been on the road since 1997. Although just two hybrids were on the market in 2001, there are more than several dozen today, and the market is ramping up quickly, driven by fuel prices and constraints, environmental regulations, and customer demand. The commercial vehicle market is also rapidly embracing hybrid technology. This two-hour web seminar will highlight the passenger, light-duty, and heavy-duty hybrid and electric vehicles that are currently in production, offered for sale, or planned for near-term production.

The path to commercialization of plug-in hybrids is likely to require complex interactions between OEMs, battery manufacturers, electric utilities, and government, yet the plug-in hybrid is a still-developing technology. How do plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) differ from conventional hybrids? What are the advantages and challenges for vehicle manufacturers, public utilities, energy and environmental concerns, and end-users? What is the current state of plug-in hybrid development?

High-voltage, high-current energy storage systems and electrical circuits in many current and future alternative-propulsion powertrains present unique challenges to the automotive industry. Care must be taken to minimize risk to all who come into contact with the vehicle throughout its development and life cycle, including powertrain developers, assembly line workers, service technicians, vehicle occupants, and first responders. Significant risk to life and limb can arise from technical issues surrounding these vehicles.

Hybrid powertrains have been on the market for more than a decade and have become one of the most successful alternative powertrains available today. More than a million hybrids are sold globally per year, primarily in Japan and the US. Some OEMs estimate that up to 80% of their light-duty vehicles may require some level of hybridization to meet upcoming CAFE regulations in the United States. Hybrids are also starting to make inroads into markets in Europe, and have recently been introduced to Chinese and Indian markets, among others. Basic information on hybrids is scattered among information sources, and is often difficult to synthesize.

The vehicle-terrain interaction in an off-road environment creates unique challenges for designers of both wheeled and tracked off-road vehicles. Not only should vehicle designers have a working knowledge of the fundamentals of on-road vehicle dynamics, they should also have the specialized knowledge of the vehicle dynamic characteristics found in construction, agriculture, and military off-road vehicles. This one-day seminar concentrates on the basics of off-highway trucks and the differences with their on-highway counterparts.

Understanding vehicle dynamics is one of the critical issues in the design of all vehicles, including heavy trucks. This seminar provides a comprehensive introduction to the fundamentals of heavy truck dynamics. It covers all of the critical subsystems that must be considered by designers and decision makers in determining the effect of various components on heavy truck dynamics. This seminar begins where the tires meet the ground, progressing up through the various components and bringing together the theory and practice of heavy truck dynamics.

Autonomous cars technology is already here. Sensors and analysis chips are ready, Google autonomous cars passed the one million miles with only 11 accidents, all of them due to human driver errors. First few US states already adopted new regulations to allow the usage of autonomous cars. The first segment to use autonomous vehicles and benefit from its advantages will most likely be the public transportation industry. Fully autonomous buses can become operational much earlier than personal cars, as they operate mostly on predefined routes and in urban areas. Since human drivers represent about 60% of the bus operators’ OPEX, and those drivers represent the biggest regulatory scheduling constrain, there is a huge incentive for the industry to move forward quickly in that direction.

The continuing electrification of powertrains is driving automotive architectures toward electrical power distribution grids, specifically modern nanogrids. This transformation is being driven in part by traction motors capable of regenerative braking and partly by the inclusion of the large storage battery into the powertrain domain. The power grid model consists of generation, transmission, and distribution components, as well as grid-scale storage, and all have automotive analogs and hold the potential of more broadly shared technologies and components. This paper will examine some pitfalls that have become apparent with the emergence of modern hybrid and plug-in vehicles (including PHEV and EV), and some potential lessons from 100 years of utility power production. It will also examine some extrapolations and potential benefits from the looming synergistic unification of these previously unrelated power technologies.
