Alternative and Electrified Vehicle Propulsion Systems
Subject of this lecture are alternative concepts for the powertrain of vehicles. This lecture deals with the different alternative drive systems, as unconventional types of combustion engines with the consideration of alternative fuels (alcohol, natural gas, hydrogen), gas turbines, Stirling engines and fuel cells as well as electric drives. Furthermore this lectures discusses the different types of variable transmissions and power split drive trains.
Regenerative drives e.g. electric -, flywheel- and hybrid drives are a main topic of this lecture. Beside the discussion of the different components (hydraulic machines, electric motors, hydraulic pressure accumulators, batteries, flywheels), possible control strategies (integrated engine-transmission management) are deducted, according to the various drive concepts.
