Technology of Hybrid & Electric Vehicles

Technology Of Hybrid Vehicles KIT

The participants gain a detailed knowledge of all drive train topologies for electric and hybrid electric vehicles and their benefits and shortcomings in specific applications (types of vehicles).

They will have a detailed understanding of the technical function and construction alternatives of all components required for electric drive trains, namely electric machines, power electronics and energy storage systems. This includes the underlying physical and technical principles as well as practical implementations in current electric vehicles.


  • Short introduction to the topic
  • Hybrid Drive Trains
  • Electrical Drive Trains
  • Energy demand of cars
  • Basics of energy storage systems
  • Basics of rotating electric machines
  • Induction machines
  • Synchronous machines
  • Basics of power electronics

Learning Targets

The knowledge from this certificate course enables the participants to specify appropriate drive train topologies and components for electric vehicles based on a detailed analysis of the energy and power demand for a given use-case (driving profile).

Participants Voice

“The online course “Hybrid and Electric Vehicles” proved to be a valuable and enriching experience for us: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Doppelbauer has great experience and superlative communication skills. The lecturer answered our questions and his supplementary anecdotes and information made the three day course really come to life.”

Gianluca Di Fulvio, EMEA Applications Engineering Group Manager at National Instruments
