Vehicle electrification is continuously gaining momentum. Electrified vehicles span from the battery-electric vehicle and hydrogen-based fuel-cell electric vehicle to many kinds of hybrid solutions, with a starter-generator at the other end of the spectrum.
The course provides the basic knowledge on the operation and modeling of electrical machines for automotive application, focusing on hybrid and electric propulsion systems. The magnetic, mechanical, thermal, and dynamic aspects will be covered, as well as practical aspects such as e-machine identification test procedures. Besides the theoretical aspects, the students will learn the use of simulation models for component level (e-machine) and system level (vehicle) simulations and will become familiar with the technical documentation of e-machines for automotive on the market.
Knowledge of: • The types of electrical machines and their use in the different electrified vehicles • The loss characteristics, thermal behavior, and cooling aspects • The sizing equations of the e-machine • The e-machine dynamic model for electric-drive level simulation • The steady-state model of the e-machine for system level simulation Ability of: • Deriving the e-machine specifications, given the application requirements • Simulate the e-machine steady-state and dynamic behavior • Evaluate the e-machine performance across standard driving cycles Capability of: • Selecting the correct e-machine type for the vehicle application • Assessing and comparing the KPIs of different e-machines • Defining the specifications and KPIs to deal with e-machine suppliers

Modalità di esame: Prova scritta (in aula); Prova orale facoltativa;
Exam: Written test; Optional oral exam;
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.
Exam: Written test; Optional oral exam;
The exam has a written and an oral part, both will take place according to the general procedures defined by PoliTO regarding the access of the students to the campus. By default, both written and oral parts will be given in presence. The students who cannot participate in presence for motivated reasons will be allowed to the blended or online modes described in the following. The written part will take place on the Exam platform in LAIB, at the date and time scheduled on the university portal. It has a duration of 90 minutes and consists of: - 6 multiple-choice quizzes: 1.0 points per questions, -0.33 penalty points for errors - 4 numerical quizzes: 2.5 points per questions. The numerical tolerance allowed on the result will be declared case by case. - 2 open quizzes: 2.5 points per question. - One written exercise: 10 total points. This must be hand-written on A4 pages, to be scanned and uploaded on the Exam platform in digital format. The score of the written exam will be saturated to 30 and evaluated as follows: • With a score of 16 points or lower, the exam is failed. • A score between 17 and 19 points implies a mandatory oral examination. • A score of 20 points or higher can be directly registered. In such case, the student can opt for the oral exam. The optional oral exam consists of one or two questions covering the course program. The final score consists of the average score of the written and oral parts.
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.
