Electric Vehicle Technologies and Applications

Attention: This course will not take place in WS 2020!

Methodisches Konstruieren will be held instead of EVTech.

Learning outcomes

The aim of this module is firstly to give students a basic insight into different components relevant to electric mobility, including their basic function and relevant design parameters. Secondly, a system based holistic approach is taught, considering drive train concepts, storage systems and charging technologies. This module is targeted towards engineering students who wish to broaden their perspective beyond conventional vehicles and gain important knowledge to understand the challenges of electrification and redesigning mobility towards a sustainable environment. The module will also provide a learning platform to enhance students understandig of relevant components. At the end of this module, the students will have an overview to several elements relevant to transport engineering and operations, including but not limited to analysis of energy source, storage system and propulsion.

Content

The lecture covers the following topics:

  • Introduction to electric mobility
  • Drivetrain concepts (HEV, BEV, FCV) and fundamentals of electric motors in electric vehicles,
  • Storage systems (SuperCap, Fuel Cell, Battery)
  • Charging strategies and technologies (for passenger vehicles, trucks and buses)
  • Auxiliaries and their influence on the energy consumption

In tutorials the discussed topics are deepend with help of an experimental learning platform.

Type of lecture

This module is offered as a blended mix of classical lectures, exercises and hands-on practical training using a learning platform for electric mobility (6ECTS, 4SWS).

Moreover, a challenging assignment in which students will have to work out topics related to electric mobilty and current research topics will be issued to students during the course.
The assignment will have to be carried out by small working groups (3-4 students).

Grading

The module is graded as a portfolio examination and consists of :

  • group assignment with presentation (3-4 students),
  • oral exam at the end of the semester.
