This is the first of two courses in the new Electric Vehicle Design sequence at USU. This course considers the design and control of power converters in electric drive vehicles. The course includes an overview of system architectures and covers system-level dynamic modeling and control using MATLAB/Simulink at levels appropriate to determine requirements and validate the performance of switched-mode power converters in the vehicle system. Analysis, modeling and design of switched-mode power converters in electric-drive vehicle systems are then covered, including battery DC-DC converters, battery management electronics, motor drive inverters and battery chargers.
