About the course

The participants gain a detailed knowledge of all drive train topologies for electric and hybrid electric vehicles and their benefits and shortcomings in specific applications (types of vehicles).

They will have a detailed understanding of the technical function and construction alternatives of all components required for electric drive trains, namely electric machines, power electronics and energy storage systems. This includes the underlying physical and technical principles as well as practical implementations in current electric vehicles.

This knowledge enables the participants to specify appropriate drive train topologies and components for electric vehicles based on a detailed analysis of the energy and power demand for a given use-case (driving profile).
