Electric and Hybrid Vehicles

Course Description

The course studies all mechanical and electrical components of electric and hybrid vehicles. It also analyzes the role of these vehicles in power systems since they can behave as generation, loads or energy storage devices.

Learning Outcomes

  1. indentify electric vehicle systems and components
  2. compute neccesary power and energy for electric vehicle drive
  3. analyze electric vehicle influences on power grid

Forms of Teaching

Lectures

Lectures will provide a theoretical background to the students.

Exercises

These will be used to solve numerical examples to the students.

Laboratory

Laboratory exercises will provide a hands-on experience on measurements of battery and electrical motor characteristics.
