The course aims to analyse in detail the principal issues in the adoption of switching power converters and electric drives in autonomous (non-cable supplied) Hybrid and Electric Vehicles (EV) within private and public transportation. On one side the autonomy increase for EV and, on the other, the electric energy increase demand in the Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles are the starting points for all the different solutions in electric hybridisation. Main electric components in the electric traction line will be presented as well as the electric energy sources and storage systems like batteries, fuel-cells, super-capacitors and flywheels. Safety and standardization issues will be sided all along the course to highlight the importance that this aspect has in the automotive world. The specification writing of the different electric components of the traction line will be described in detail and a starting design of the different components will be the final part of the course.

Together with the room lessons, numerical exercises are foreseen along the course as well as laboratory experiences. The student is guided along the course to a design activity that enters in the details of the various elements that composes the Electric Drive Line in order to understand the collateral effect of choices done at system level.

Modalità di esame: Prova orale obbligatoria; Elaborato scritto prodotto in gruppo;
Exam: Compulsory oral exam; Group essay;
1) Examination The examination is based on the defence of the design report for an electric drive line for EV or HEV. The report is based on a theme that is given to the student in the first week of course. Once the students received the theme they have to complete the report with the following parts: First part: Traction sizing Second part: Specification of the electric drive line elements Third part: Detailed design of the principal elements of (one of) the proposed drive line(s). 2) Final evaluation calculation: Each part received an evaluation on base 30. Each part will be evaluated over: completeness, calculation precision, coherence in the choices and clearness in the exposition. These four aspects are evaluated with a vote from 0 to 10 (10 be the best) and weighted in the same way to the final vote for each part. To the resulting number, up to 4 points can be added for personal contribution outside the required fields. The result is normalized to 30 and saturated to 27. On the final discussion, when the report is presented, a variation (positive and negative) of 3 point can be obtained based on the justifications given. The laude will be given only to who had saturated in the evaluation of the first 2 parts. The whole of the report should not exceed 60 pages, excluding the components datasheets. 3) Examination topics The course is organised so to let the student express its design and evaluation capabilities in an extreme autonomous way. The fact that the course leads to a specific design exercise implies that all the other engineering aspects, not directly treated inside the course, are essential for a good evaluation. In the following the details of the different points that are considered essential for a complete design of the electric drive line are given. First Part Reference vehicle and utilization use cases Hybridization level and justification of the choices Vehicle performance requirements (data given and data chosen by the student) Estimation of the efficiencies of the different subsystems in the electric traction line Evaluation of the traction resistance in all the conditions Continuous torque specification Energy evaluation on a specific standardized cycle Energy evaluation on a specific non-standardized cycle suited to the application Power specification of the traction line Second Part Specifications of the principal elements of the electric traction line: gearbox, electric motor, power converter, auxiliaries converter, storage system. For each of them the following must be specified: Expected dimensions, required performance, expected efficiency, reference standards, cooling conditions, testing conditions, expected cost. Third Part First design of the main elements of the electric traction line. The level of detail required will be specified along the course. The design implies to define a solution for each active and reactive elements inside the traction line. All capacitive components have to be chosen, only one inductive component have to be detailed designed. Conclusion and self-evaluation of the proposed solution.
Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilità o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'Unità Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione più idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.

In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.
