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. This seminar introduces participants to basic NVH principles and unique NVH challenges encountered in the development of HEV, ReEV, and EV including engine start/stop behavior, electric motor whine, driveline NVH, body structure, influence of noise from accessories, and sound quality development, as well as potential countermeasures.

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. A series of case studies related to truck ride engineering will provide an opportunity for attendees to demonstrate their knowledge gained and introduces them to some of the newer technologies related to evaluating and improving heavy truck ride dynamics.

Vehicle functional requirements, emission regulations, and thermal limits all have a direct impact on the design of a powertrain cooling airflow system. Given the expected increase in emission-related heat rejection, suppliers and vehicle manufacturers must work together as partners in the design, selection, and packaging of cooling system components. An understanding and appreciation of airflow integration issues and vehicle-level trade-offs that effect system performance are important to the team effort. The severe duty cycles, minimal ram air, and sometimes unconventional package layouts present unique challenges.

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. Asian, European, and North American manufacturers of hybrid and electric vehicles will be reviewed.

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? Those unfamiliar with PHEV or vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology, yet whose job will be impacted by plug-in hybrid vehicles in the future, will benefit from this two-hour web seminar.

Increased public pressure to improve commercial truck safety and new stopping distance regulations have intensified the need to better understand the factors influencing heavy vehicle braking performance. To assist individuals and their organizations in preparing for these new truck braking standards, this seminar focuses attendees on understanding medium-duty hydraulic brake systems and heavy-duty air brake systems and how both systems' performance can be predicted, maintained and optimized. The function and application of the major brake system components will be explained and attendees will discover how brakes, tires and roadways interact as a system.

Electric drives are found in hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, as well as battery electric vehicles. More than two million hybrid vehicles worldwide utilize electric drive components, and battery technology has matured enough to enable major manufacturers to develop light-duty and commercial electric vehicles for mass production and sale beginning in 2010-2012. It is also likely that many conventional vehicles will incorporate some form of idle-stop or stop-start system comprised of a low-output electric drive, as an integral part of efforts to meet U.S. CAFE fuel economy standards and EU CO2 emission requirements.

The success of electric mobility is not only determined by the performance of the vehicles. From a customer perspective, the certainty to always be able to recharge the battery (private or public) is important. Solving the charging infrastructure issues turns out to be almost as challenging, since a vehicle is parked at very different locations during the course of a day and the still limited range requires more charging events. Different technical environments and customer expectations require very different solutions – from a basic cable with limited power and functionality to a fast charger with permanent communication skills between vehicle and grid. Based on our experience from multiple projects we will give an overview of the current situation in electric vehicle charging, describe the key challenges and provide insights for a successful way forward.
