Industrial/PhD Course: Electric Vehicles and Range Extenders - CANCELLED
- Monday 20. August 2012 at 8:30 - Thursday 23. August 2012 at 16:00
The transport sector remains to be one of the major sources of CO2 emission requiring dramatic changes and technology development in the near future. There are good reasons to believe electric vehicles will play a major role in this transition. Two of the main advantages include highly efficient electric drive trains and the ability to utilize electricity produced from renewable sources while at the same time acting as energy buffer for intermittent sources such as wind power. This course will provide an overview of the main types of electric vehicles ranging from entirely battery electric to fuel cell powered. The overall technology will be reviewed and the key components: Motors, electric power converters, energy storage, onboard energy generators will be discussed including their operating principle and modelling. The implications of vehicle to grid connection on the electric grid will also be discussed in the last part of the course.
The design of hybrid vehicles (combination of batteries and fuel cell or internal combustion engine) with respect to battery capacity and fuel cell/engine size and the associated control strategy requires further development. In this course drive cycle simulations will be presented as a tool to assist in this process.
