  • Traditional Disciplines
  • General Education
  • (Fundamental sciences, mathematics
  • and introductions to the discipline courses)
  • Theoretical engineering focus to content.
  • More mathematically rigorous.
  • More comprehensive senior design projects.
  • Signals and Systems
  • Electromechanics
  • Digital Signal Processing
  • Technology Disciplines
  • General Education
  • (Fundamental sciences, mathematics
  • and introductions to the discipline courses)
  •  IntegratedApplied/Laboratory focus
  • Applied engineering focus to content.
  • Less mathematically rigorous.
  • Understanding Computers
  • Electronic shop practices
  • Advanced Instrumentation
  • C++ Programming
  • Divergence of emphasis around Spring semester of the second academic year

  • How do the backgrounds of students stack up against the content?
hybrid vehicle systems course outline8
Hybrid Vehicle Systems Course Outline
  • Course enablers are sufficient for upper level undergraduate or graduate level hybrid vehicle systems course
integrating course content
Integrating Course Content
  • Hybrid vehicle systems are about combining multiple power sources to provide torque to the wheels and combining multiple energy storage mechanisms in one platform
  • Pick quantities to start which are understood by all students in multiple disciplines
  • Power
    • Electrical
    • Mechanical
    • Automotive (HP scaled by torque)
integrating course content10
Integrating Course Content
  • Consider the optimization flow and systems design aspects of iterating model parameters
  • Power components can be described as simple parameterized functions of conceptually known quantities
integrating course content11
Integrating Course Content
  • Describe function components using discretized forms
  • Vehicle dynamics example
integrating course content12
Integrating Course Content
  • Combine models through a mechanical connection  the planetary gearset (Prius, Escape Hybrid) or through the driveline (Honda ISA, others)
  • Prius Power Split gearset example

Linear relationship between component velocities.

course development and plans
Course Development and Plans
  • 2 credit course in the Fall 2007 semester (with abbreviated topics coverage)
    • Joint teaching between ECET and AET
    • Lecture and Laboratory content
    • Introduction to analysis tools
      • ADVISOR or alternate
      • Battery system dynamic model simulations
      • Automotive performance and emissions
      • Communications network software (CAN protocol)
course development and plans14
Course Development and Plans
  • 1 three credit course and 1 two (or three) credit course planned for future years
    • First course
      • Lecture with some lab content on complete course topics
    • Second course
      • Vehicle design project course similar in scope to a senior design project where student groups complete applied hybrid vehicle project
    • Joint teaching between ECET and AET
