What Is an Electrified Powertrain?
In modern vehicles the electric powertrain is now replacing the combustion engine. The electrified powertrain is composed of many different system components for providing electric energy and torque, such as the battery, power electronics and an electric motor.
When talking about electric vehicles, also called EVs, we can differentiate between different types of electrified powertrains. There are the ones which purely run on electric energy and where a battery supplies the electric motor, but there are also the hybrid models which combine a combustion engine and an electric motor.
Why Is an Electrified Powertrain Needed?
In general, electrical energy has an enormous economic and environmental impact as it enables us to reduce carbon emissions and improve air quality. With regard to electrical machines, one can benefit from the aforementioned aspects of electrical energy, but also an improved efficiency and control.
How Is an Electrified Powertrain Related to Embedded Systems?
Embedded systems are used to control the power electronics devices which are used for communication, control and management functions.
What Do You Learn About Electrified Powertrains in the Embedded Academy E-Learning?
The e-learnings introduce the user to different topics relevant for the field of the electrified powertrain.
First of all, you can start with our introductory course on the electrified powertrain. In this course, you get a first impression why the topic of electric mobility is becoming increasingly relevant for our every-day lives and our industries. Moreover, the right terminology as well as first models for any analysis of this topic are presented to you.
The unit on power electronics will introduce the main elements of an electric circuit, their pros and cons and other semiconductor devices. We will focus on the half-bridge as a central element in power electronics before giving an outlook on thermal design and assembly.
Next, a course on electrical machines introduces you to the different types of electrical machines and approaches their application in practice.
In addition to this, there is an overview course on the control of electrical machines available, which shortly explains some basics of control systems (system theory, time domain / frequency domain, transfer functions) as well as some basic principles of AC and DC machines. It closes by discussing some elements of control design and strategy.
