Learning outcomes of the course unit:
After successful completion of this course the student obtains deep theoretical knowledge and practical experience in transmission systems of motor and electric vehicles. Will be prepared to analyze the principles of operation of the drive mechanism and the transmission of torque from the prime mover ( combustion engine , electric motor ) to the drive wheels of modern motor and electric vehicles according to the vehicle's powertrain system conception. The student shall also able to analyze a variety of advanced mechatronic systems with process control in automatic transmissions systems, electronically controlled differential trains, electric and electronic differentials etc. The student should understand the mechatronic approach to the design process in the field of mechatronic systems based on physical models and their design methodology based on mathematical modeling. The student should be able to creatively apply acquired knowledge in solving of complex mechatronic systems proposals for the transmission systems of modern motor and electric vehicles according to the latest trends in design of sophisticated mechatronic systems.
Course contents:
Basic classifications of the motor and electric vehicles powertrains. Transformation of the prime mover characteristics (internal combustion engine, electric machine), gearbox range (range of the gear ratios), classification of the gear ratios and the powertrain dynamics for the purpose of claryfying of the torque flow transformation from the prime mover to the driven wheel of a motor or electric vehicle. Mechanical gear trains and its classifications (by purpose - main gear, reduction gear, differential gear, by construction - shaft gear trains, planetary gear trains, transmission elements - clutches, transformation elements - spur gears, belt gears, chain gears and shifting elements - dog clutches, multi-plate wet clutches, freewheels) . Electronic control systems of the transmission systems of motor and electric vehicles, control systems of torque flow devices in differential gears of motor vehicles and electronic differential systems of electric vehicles, modeling and simulation of the mechanical systems in relation to the control systems of the modern transmission systems of modern motor and electric vehicles in the Simulink software environment.
