This course will provide a fundamental overview of Alternative Energy Vehicle’s (AEV) and the key challenges and opportunities of AEV technologies. The instructor will explain the engineering philosophy of several AEV’s, including electric vehicles (EV), hybrid electric vehicles (HEV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV), and battery electric vehicles (BEV). Participants will learn an overview of electric drives, power electronics, regenerative braking system, power management, and battery management. The instructor will address existing commercial HEV architecture. Other HEV applications for non-passenger vehicles, including heavy duty vehicles, reliability issues, and other potential problem areas will also be discussed.

This course consists of 20 contact hours and is ideal for Engineers or technicians working on hybrid or electric vehicles.

The registration fee for this course is 7000 per participant. A minimum of 10 participants are required in order to run a course.

      Outstanding! 5

      I spent at least 2 hours daily working on the course and this course week took me a month to complete. The problem sets are designed in such a way that one is forced to read and do further research to accomplish them.
