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)

After this course, the students shall be able to:
- describe the components of an arbitrary powertrain (hybrid and conventional)
- explain the advantages and disadvantages of a given powertrain
- explain the influence of powertrain design and its control on powertrain efficiency and emissions
- derive a control strategy for an arbitrary powertrain and to use this for optimization

Content

The course includes the following:
- A thorough description of different powertrain concepts
- 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
