4406149 Vehicular Electric Power System Analysis 3.0 3
Description This course explores the types, uses, specifications and characteristics of a variety of vehicles containing light/heavy vehicles, electric vehicles and hybrid electric vehicle. In addition, the vehicle power system modeling, analysis and real-time status stability assessment will be discussed. Also, the course discuss new clean energies such as fuel cells, photovoltaic cells, super-capacitors integrated with advanced power electronic converters, and motor drive technology for the vehicle power system applications. DC and AC power distribution architecture of the vehicle power system also be discussed and analyzed. Finally, corresponding to the trends of electric vehicles integrated smart micro-grid system technology; the electric vehicle power system needs the Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) function to stabilize the grid or Vehicle-to-House (V2H) function used for household uninterruptible power device system applications. Therefore, this course will teach a variety of new power converters wit
