Challenge Yourself—Become part of the Future of Hybrid Technologies
The light vehicle industry is facing a shortage of engineering talent needed to retool for the use of electric drives as the primary source of motive power. Help fill that gap with Michigan Tech’s Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) curriculum. The coursework provides advanced knowledge and hands-on labs in the design, analysis, control, calibration, and operating characteristics of HEVs. Whether you are a graduate or undergraduate student, you can integrate any number of these courses into your degree. Another flexible option: simply take courses as a non-degree seeking student.
This course will provide you with a broad technical knowledge and practical expertise of hybrid and electric vehicle (HEV) technologies, analysis, design, component selection and sizing at both system and vehicle level.
This five-day course will consist of a mix of lectures, case studies and some very unique practical (hands-on) sessions from both academic and industry specialists, to develop proficiency in a broad range of HEV (and its sub-systems) technologies. All delegates will receive a certificate of attendance at the end of the course.
What you will learn
On successful completion of this course you will be able to:
- Analyse the different powertrain architecture options and select the appropriate solutions within realistic performance and commercial constraints.
- Evaluate various technology options for (electrical and mechanical) energy generation, storage, transmission, and management for a HEV, and be able to select between different technologies relative to a given vehicle application and overall system design.
- Size various HEV sub-systems, within the context of various vehicle constraints, such as performance, fuel economy and packaging.
- Employ and experiment rapid control prototyping techniques to design and validate HEV high-level and low-level control systems.
- Carry out performance evaluations of a HEV and its sub-systems, using offline simulations and real-time HiL testing.
