Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Hybrid Vehicle Drives and Fuel Cells
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Automotive Engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.04.2016
Module code: FT25.1
The exam administration creates a SAP-Submodule-No for every exam type in every module. The SAP-Submodule-No is equal for the same module in different study programs.
P242-0060, P242-0061
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.
5V+1U (6 hours per week)
ECTS credits:
European Credit Transfer System. Points for successful completion of a course. Each ECTS point represents a workload of 30 hours.
Semester: 5
Mandatory course: yes
Language of instruction:
Written exam 120 min.

FT25.1 (P242-0060, P242-0061) Automotive Engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2015 , semester 5, mandatory course
FT25.1 (P242-0060, P242-0061) Automotive Engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.04.2016 , semester 5, mandatory course
FT25.1 (P242-0060, P242-0061) Automotive Engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2019 , semester 5, mandatory course
Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
90 class hours (= 67.5 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 210 hours (equivalent to 7 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 142.5 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.

Learning outcomes:
Evaluation of the longitudinal dynamics of hybrid drives in subjective driving tests in real traffic with a detailled analysis by the students
Classification of hybrid drives according to electric motor power with special classification of hybrid drives according to power flow.
After successfully completing this module, students will understand the significance of hybrid drives consisting of internal combustion engines and electric motors based on the shortcomings of vehicle drives using internal combustion engines and electric vehicle traction drives. They will understand how different concepts of hybrid vehicle drives work according to the current state of the art.
Students will understand the technical-physical relationships between the function and mode of operation of different hybrid vehicle drives and the consequences in terms of CO2 emissions and vehicle dynamics. They will be able to implement technical modifications to hybrid drive systems and are thus qualified to work as development engineers.
