Overview (preliminary)

Electric and hybrid vehicles are a key technology for a resource- and climate-friendly transportation. Reaseach and development in this field has therefore received considerable attention in recent years, both in industry and academia. The demand for specialized engineers is consequently high. In this lecture, the fundamentals of electric and hybrid vehicles, particularly architectures, modeling, and energy management, are introduced and illustrated by numerous case studies based on realized vehicle concepts. Throughout the lecture, the modeling and energy management methods are investigated under MATLAB/Simulink using specialized toolboxes. For the practical application of the acquired knowledge an energy management competition is planned.
