ENGS 85: Practical Electrified Vehicle Engineering (ENGS 85.07)

Offered

Prerequisites

ENGS 22 and at least one of ENGS 32 or ENGS 33.

Implementation of electric vehicles, including hybrid-electric vehicles (HEVs), battery electric vehicles (BEVs), and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) requires a wide range of engineering skills. This course focuses on practical aspects of this challenge that are rarely addressed in standard engineering curricula, including high-power wiring, circuit protection, electrical safety, and battery system safety. The course is designed to be accessible to both electrical and mechanical engineers. It draws on principles from both fields and fills in some of the gaps between the usual fields of expertise of each group, enabling them to work together more effectively.
