Eligibility:


In order to be eligible for a second cycle course the applicant needs to fulfil the general and specific entry requirements of the programme that owns the course. (If the second cycle course is owned by a first cycle programme, second cycle entry requirements apply.)
Exemption from the eligibility requirement: Applicants enrolled in a programme at Chalmers where the course is included in the study programme are exempted from fulfilling these requirements.

Course specific prerequisites

Control theory

Aim

The course should provide the students with knowledge about different powertrains and their simulation and control, ranging from full hybrid vehicles to traditional powertrains.

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

- describe the components of an arbitrary powertrain (conventional, hybrid or electric)
- 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:
- a thorough description of different powertrain concepts
- an overview of components like electrical machines, batteries, alternative combustion engines and mechanical transmission used in a driveline and their properties
- general principles of static, quasi-static and dynamic modeling
- model based estimation and control
- methodology for control of energy flows in (hybrid) vehicles

Organisation

Lectures and assignments based on computer simulations

Literature

Guzzella & Sciaretta, Vehicle Propulsion Systems, 2nd edition, Springer, 2007, ISBN 978-3-540-74691-1. Additional technical papers and classroom notes (lecture hand-outs) are used as supplementary text.

Examination

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