Course specific prerequisites

Control theory

Aim

The course should provide the students with knowledge about how to design different powertrains, and how they can be controlled. They can be a powertrain with only a combustion engine or an electric powertrain, or combinations of these as different hybrid powertrains.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

- describe the components of an arbitrary powertrain (combustion engine - gearbox, electric motor - battery, or combinations of these (hybrid electric)
- derive a model of a battery suitable for a vehicle
- explain the advantages and disadvantages of a given powertrain
- derive a control strategy for an arbitrary powertrain
- explain the influence of powertrain design and its control on powertrain efficiency

Content

The course includes the following:
- an intruduction to different powertrain concepts
- an overview of components including electrical machines, batteries, modern combustion engines and mechanical transmissions and their properties related to powertrains
- general principles of static, quasi-static and dynamic modeling
- model based estimation and control
- methodology for control of energy flows in (hybrid) vehicles

Organisation

The course is based on lectures and on assignments where the students model and simulate several powertrains (combinations of electric motors and combustion engines)

Literature

Guzzella & Sciaretta, Vehicle Propulsion Systems, 3rd edition, Springer, 2013, ISBN 978-3-642-35912-5. Additional technical papers and classroom notes (lecture hand-outs) are used as supplementary text.

Examination including compulsory elements

There is a final written exam. Also, the final grade is partly based on the report in one of the assignments.
