Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will have acquired basic knowledge about unconventional electric and hybrid vehicle drives, including overall vehicle concepts and their classification into the most important vehicle subcomponents. They will be able to:
- classify electric and hybrid vehicles and their components with regard to their construction, functions, performance characteristics, as well as assess and evaluate their specific parameters.
- dimension sub-components required for new vehicle concepts and integrate them into new overall systems.
