Overview

Why are hybrid vehicles still more common than battery electric ones? Why are electric vehicles still more expensive than conventional or hybrid ones? 

In The Hybrid Vehicles Certificate, which is part of Emerging Automotive Technologies MicroMasters Program and is also offered by EdX in partnership with Chalmers University of Technology - ChalmersX, you will get the answers to this and much more. 

While electric motors can improve vehicles regarding performance, energy consumption and emissions, they suffer from high cost and weight of batteries. Smart combinations of electric motors and combustion engines in a hybrid powertrain can combine these strengths with the advantages of combustion engines.

This course is aimed at learners with a bachelor's degree or engineers in the automotive industry who need to develop their knowledge about hybrid powertrains. 

In this course, we will examine different mechanical layouts of hybrid powertrains and how they influence the performance and complexity of the powertrain. 

Different sizing of powertrains in micro, mild, full hybrids, as well as plug-in hybrids, is also discussed and you’ll learn how they can be modelled and analyzed for example by simulation of driving cycles. You will also learn about the Energy Management system and how this controls the hybrid powertrain modes and when to charge and discharge the battery.
