Crash Safety of Hybrid- and Electric Vehicles


Description

During recent years, electric vehicles have achieved an ever-increasing importance for the automotive market. A compliance of future restrictions for CO2 emissions will not be possible without electrified power trains. All mayor OEM offer an increasing variety of hybrid vehicles (HEV), plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV) and pure electric vehicles (BEV). Also a first offer of fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV) is in the market. Worldwide over 2 million electrified vehicles (BEV and PHEV) were on the road in 2017. The breakthrough of the automotive electrification is evident. Nevertheless, several challenges for vehicle safety arise with new these technologies. Electric shock risks on high-voltages systems, fire hazards in case of lithium-ion batteries and risks of rupture in case of gas tanks are the most important issues here. For every mode of drive, specific drive components and their particular safety requirements are described. In addition to common rules and standards, specific needs based on real-life accidents are being discussed. For all relevant vehicle components the respective safety requirements, safety concepts and exemplary safety initiatives will be discussed. The state of the art concerning test standards, verification methods and possibilities for virtual safety will be shown. Future trends will be presented with the help of current research projects and results. Practical experience of rescuing, recovering and towing of electric vehicles complete the spectrum of accident safety.

Who should attend?

The seminar addresses development and research engineers as well technicians in the fields of testing and engineering with electric vehicles. Due to its current relevance the course suits young professionals as well as experienced engineers who want to deepen their knowledge in this field.

Course Objectives
