|Fundamentals of Powertrain Design for Hybrid Electric Vehicles|
|I.D. #||C1527||Duration||2 Days|
| This seminar is offered in China only and presented in Mandarin Chinese. The course materials are bilingual (English and Chinese).
Driven by high fuel prices, environmental regulations, and consumer demand, the market for hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) has experienced rapid growth. Every major automotive company produces an HEV. There are approximately fifty different HEV models on the market and over eight million HEVs already sold. In order to meet current and future demands in the HEV and PHEV markets, success will depend on engineering personnel knowing how to develop and manufacture HEV powertrains.
This two day seminar will cover the fundamentals of HEV powertrain design. The typical architecture of HEVs and the basic functions and modes of a hybrid electric powertrain will be discussed. The seminar will also explain both powertrain design for (P)HEVs as well hybrid transmissions. HEV models such as Prius, Volt, Jeely, Infinity M35h, Jetta, Qin, and BMW i8 will be discussed in case studies.

|Who Should Attend|
| An undergraduate degree in engineering is highly recommended. Attendees should have some knowledge/experience either in integrating a powertrain into a vehicle, in engineering and manufacturing powertrain for vehicles, or in engineering or manufacturing of transmission/engine/e-motor and the components.
Mr. Duan is currently Technical Director, Hybrid Electric Vehicles at Chery Automotive, leading a major program of developing a Plug-in HEV, a P2 HEV powertrain being successfully developed, and the PHEV currently in production. Previously, Mr. Duan served as Technical Director of Hybrid Electric Powertrains at Changan New Energy Automobile Inc. China, where he was involved with developing full hybrid electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. He led a program to develop new generation HEVs and works on power system architecture design, product development, powertrain control, and energy management. He was also involved with developing an Atkinson cycle engine, which improves fuel efficient significantly. Mr. Duan also previously worked with the Sustainable Mobility Technologies at Ford Motor Co., where he was involved in developing new generation hybrid transaxles. He led the effort to fix the transaxle problems that Escape Hybrid vehicles had in the field and to improve quality and reliability. As a result, he was awarded Ford's Current Model Quality Award: Best in Ford Transmission Warranty Performance. Mr. Duan received his B.S. Aerospace Engineering from Beijing Institute of Aeronautics, a M.S. Aerospace Engineering from Beijing Institute of Technology, and his M.S. Reliability Engineering from the University of Maryland.
