Introduction to Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Engineering

 Average 5 out of 5

A three credit mechanical engineering senior level course developed at Lawrence Tech University through seed funding from the CAAT. Included in this course are PowerPoint presentations, labs, assignments (no solutions), and syllabus.


This course was developed by Dr. Vladimir V. Vantsevich through seed funding from the CAAT and is offered at Lawrence Technical Institute as a 3 credit senior level mechanical engineering course. Included in this course are PowerPoint presentations, labs, assignments (no solutions), and syllabus. If you're an instructor and need access to solutions, please contact the CAAT. The course focuses on hybrid electric and electric vehicle (HEV/EV) mechatronics and components, power flow and management, power storage and design, engineering problems faced when engineering HEV drivetrain systems, and applications for commercial, industrial, and military use. The labs and workshops provide students with hands-on experience using 4x4 dynamometers, hydraulically-controlled systems, and simulation software. For a more comprehensive summary of the course, please refer to the syllabus.
