EV Engineering – Architecture and Components
The automobile industry is growing rapidly and shifting towards Electric Vehicle. By 2024, approx 40% of the automotive industry expected to get transform on Electric Vehicle technology. There is an immense need for skilled engineers in order to speed up this transition and meet the goals set by the companies. As compared to the traditional vehicle, which is driven by the internal combustion engine, the EV has a completely different architecture which requires multi-disciplinary skills.
MG Motor is one of the major players in the automobile industry in India and around the globe collaborated with Autobot Academy and ASDC to introduce this new course in order to take you through the basics of the EV architecture and different components. In this course you will gain more in-depth knowledge and insight into the mechanical and electrical aspects of the powertrain design architecture, key components functionality and the various forces acting on the vehicle. By the end of this course, you will also learn about various safety procedures and precautions to be followed while working on an EV, the safety of the vehicle, detection of basic errors and understanding their diagnosis. Thus, this course has been designed and presented in order to make your industry ready to work on an EV and be a step ahead of others.

|EV Introduction||We will start by taking a look at the basics of the automobile – the basic requirement for a vehicle to be labelled as an automobile. The various architecture present and their combinations.
Following this, we will travel through time and look at various developments in the transportation industry in terms of automobiles, and in the process understand the factors that have led to the coming of EV in today’s time.
At last, we will discuss various factors affecting EV market trends for the last decade and current and upcoming scenarios and policies.
|EV Architecture||In this module, we will start by understanding the various architecture and motor configuration of EV. Can we use hub motors in 4 wheeled EV? What configuration is best for all-wheel drive in EV? We will answer questions like these. Following this, we will take a major look at the differences between the ICE and EV architecture and how it impacts the powertrain, performance and design of the vehicle.|
|EV Powertrain Selection Methodology||In this module, you will go through the process of calculating the forces acting on an accelerating vehicle. Understand the basic concepts of various resistive forces acting, their causes and factors to optimize their effects on the vehicle, in order to maximize efficiency and performance as per the utility. And by the end of the module calculate the total power required for the propulsion of the vehicle and motor to be selected.
Once you are clear about how to calculate the torque and rpm of the motor required – the major question comes is what kind of motors are available? Which motor should I choose? We will talk about these topics and also know about the operational and constructional basics of these motors.
|Electrical Control Unit System||Now that you understand the motor power and performance required, this module will discuss the basics of motor and its control. Various components involved in the control mechanism, principle of HV and LV components used.|
|Battery and BMS||In this module, you will walk through the final stage of electric vehicle design – battery pack. You will start with various cell types and the parameters to look for while selecting a suitable cell. Following this, you go on to select the battery pack and calculate the cell combination. Now the major concern with the battery pack is safety – hence, comes the BMS. You will look at the basic architectures of BMS available and how to select the suitable BMS for your application. And finally, by the end of the module, you will be able to calculate the range of the battery pack.
By the end of the module, you will also learn about the various recycling processes involved in the handling of Li-Ion cells.
|Vehicle Charging System||Once the battery pack is clear and you understand the terminologies regarding charging and discharging of the pack, this module will take you through the charging process of the vehicle. We start with types of connectors in the EV and go on to look at the various methods of charging the battery pack in EV.|
|HV Safety Consideration||In this module, you will learn about the various constructional and functional safety norms related to HV system handling. You will come to know about various tools and procedures to be followed and IS 26262 standards.|
|Diagnostics and Troubleshooting in EV||Now that you know about the various handling protocols in an HV system, components involved and their functionality – we come to this final module where you will learn more about the general errors which are faced in an EV and what are the diagnosis related to that.|
