Topics: Powertrain & Propulsion
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 has experienced rapid growth. Every major automotive company produces a HEV with approximately fifty different HEV models on the market and over five million HEVs having already been sold. To meet current and future demands in the HEV and PHEV markets, success will depend on engineering and support personnel having and maintaining a thorough understanding of HEV related technologies.
This two-day seminar will cover the fundamentals of HEV in an easy-to-understand format. This seminar will explain how HEVs save fuel, how they are classified in terms of powertrain system architecture and an in-depth look at the hybrid powertrain architectures of Power-split and P2 HEV. Also explained will be the design, modeling, and control of HEVs and component selection. Existing HEV models, such as the Toyota Prius, Honda Civic, GM Volt, AUDI Q5, and VW Touareg will be used as case studies throughout the seminar.
By attending this training program you will be able to:
This seminar is designed for individuals working in engineering, marketing, and manufacturing of powertrain systems along with other electrical and mechanical aspects of HEVs, including PHEVs and REEVs. Information presented in this seminar may also be of value to those working with renewable energy and transportation systems.
An undergraduate degree in engineering or a strong technical background is highly recommended. Attendees should have taken an undergraduate or graduate course in basic mechanics and basic electronics.
You must complete all course contact hours and successfully pass the learning assessment to obtain CEUs.
Mr. Duan is currently Chief Engineer, Hybrid Electric Vehicles at Chery Automotive. 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.
