Syllabus

This course is full of best-in-class content by leading faculty and industry experts in the form of videos and projects

Course Overview

An electric vehicle is an electrical system made of many interconnected electrical components working together to drive it forward. Starting a career in the EV industry requires an established understanding of electrical systems, individual electrical components, and the many underlying concepts. 

This course will provide the foundation needed for students from non-electrical and electrical backgrounds to kick start their career in the EV industry. It will also prepare students for advanced courses in related fields.  

Each week is designed with challenges that require practical application of the concepts learned. At the end of the course, students will be required to complete a hands-on project that requires a practical understanding of an electrical system and its components.

Course Syllabus

On a daily basis we talk to companies in the likes of Tata Elxsi and Mahindra to fine tune our curriculum.

Week 1 - Basic Electrical Concepts and Terminologies

At the core of electrical circuits are voltage and current that relate to the flow of electricity through them. When combined, current and voltage provide power that energizes the circuit. It is important to understand these terminologies and associated concepts to fully understand electrical circuits and advanced systems.

In this week, you will learn about

  • Terminologies: Circuit, Open Circuit, Closed Circuit, Conductor, Insulator, Voltage, Current, Power, Energy
  • War of the Currents: AC vs DC
  • Power Factor, Load (Resistor, Inductor, Capacitor), Phase, Neutral, and Earth
  • Series and Parallel Connections

Week 2 - Electrical Systems and Power Electronics

Electric power grids provide the power needed to charge the battery pack in electric vehicles. Power electronics are needed to control and convert electrical energy from the source to meet the specifications of the power grid that powers electrical systems such as the electric vehicle. It is therefore important to understand how this energy is generated, transferred, distributed, and stored.

In this week, you will learn about

  • Power Grids: Generation, Transmission, and Distribution
  • Safety Equipment: CBs, Fuses, Relays
  • Role of Power Electronics
  • Vehicle: Storage, Loads, Battery Charging, Power Train

Week 3 - Electrical Power Train

Electrical power trains are a combination of components such as the battery pack, electric motor, and inverter. These parts work together to develop power required for propulsion of the EV. It is important to understand the components in the powertrain and their associated concepts.

In this week, you will learn about

  • Motors and their Types: DC Motor, Brushless DC Motor, Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor, Induction Motor
  • Losses and Efficiency at Different Load Conditions
  • Power Electronics based Control: Key Ideas

Week 4 - Battery System

Rechargeable batteries are used to power electric vehicles. As the battery systems have high voltage requirements and operate safely under specific conditions, a battery management system is in place to oversee and regulate its functions.

In this week, you will learn about

  • Basics of Batteries and the Types of Batteries used in Electric Vehicles
  • Battery-Related Terminologies: Level, Anode, and Cathode
  • Fundamentals of Fast Charging Techniques
  • Battery Management Systems and their Components: Cell, Pack, Fuse, Contactor, Microcontroller, and Sensor
