Introduction to Hybrid Electric Vehicle Systems PD291809

PD291809

Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) models currently populating the vehicle electrification landscape indicate their dominance in the market. Although electric, plug-in, and fuel cell vehicles are making inroads in the market, the HEV stands as the market leader in adoption, and manufacturers have no plans on diminishing HEV production. HEV powertrain operation is totally different from the traditional vehicle. It is essential to understand the various operating modes and how failure modes in the hybrid system affect its operation. Scan tool data, animations, and detailed graphics are used for teaching how these systems operate and how different diagnostic approaches are required.

At the conclusion of this course from SAE training partner FutureTech*, participants will have a firm knowledge of hybrid system operation based on the different powertrain configurations and how scan tool data and diagnostics differ from traditional vehicles. Ford, GM, Honda, Hyundai, Lexus, Toyota hybrid electric vehicle products are featured. The estimated time to completion, including knowledge checks and the learning assessment for this course is two hours.

Objectives

By participating in this On Demand Course, you will be able to:

  • List the advantages and disadvantages of HEV systems
  • List the major systems contained in an HEV system
  • Describe the architectures of the major HEV system designs
  • List the common components found in HEV systems
  • Identify HEV Powertrain component configurations
  • Describe the operation of the HEV system during the four basic operating modes
  • Describe the operation of an HEV Planetary Gear Set during a basic drive cycle

Materials Provided

  • 90 days of online single-user access (from date of purchase) to the two hour presentation
  • Online learning assessment (submit to SAE)
  • Course handbook (downloadable, .pdf's)
  • Instructor follow up to your content questions
