Topics: Powertrain & Propulsion
This course is offered in China only and presented in Mandarin Chinese. The course materials are bilingual (English and Chinese).
Developing environmentally cleaner and more fuel efficient vehicles is transforming the automotive industry worldwide, particularly in China with its emphasis on new energy vehicles. There are many engineering challenges that must be addressed in designing effective new energy vehicles. The technical knowledge required to understand and make the right decisions with regard to powertrain architecture, powertrain controls, and energy management strategies is critical to success in this market.
This two day course will focus on providing participants with an overview of hybrid electric vehicle propulsion systems followed by design and control approaches for series, parallel, and plug-in hybrid powertrains. Finally, high efficiency energy management strategies are addressed. To ensure a thorough understanding of the design concepts and practical applications covered in this course, a number of case problems, examples, and demonstrations are utilized.
By attending this course you will be able to:
This course is intended for individuals with at least 3 years of experience in powertrain development and/or research. Experience with hybrid powertrains is a plus. Powertrain development engineers, control engineers, and hybrid vehicle engineers will benefit the most from this course.
An undergraduate degree in mechanical, electrical/electronic, or automotive engineering is recommended. Additionally, technical knowledge in the areas of engines, transmissions, motors, batteries, and electronic controls is highly recommended.
