Advanced electric drive vehicles by Ali Emadi

By Ali Emadi

Electrification is an evolving paradigm shift within the transportation towards extra effective, better functionality, more secure, smarter, and extra trustworthy automobiles. there's actually a transparent development to maneuver from inner combustion engines (ICEs) to extra built-in electrified powertrains.

Providing a close evaluate of this becoming region, Advanced electrical force Vehicles starts off with an creation to the car undefined, an evidence of the necessity for electrification, and a presentation of the basics of traditional autos and ICEs. It then proceeds to handle the main elements of electrified vehicles—i.e., energy digital converters, electrical machines, electrical motor controllers, and effort garage structures.

This complete work:

  • Covers extra electrical cars (MEVs), hybrid electrical autos (HEVs), plug-in hybrid electrical cars (PHEVs), range-extended electrical cars (REEVs), and all-electric automobiles (EVs) together with battery electrical autos (BEVs) and gasoline mobilephone automobiles (FCVs)
  • Describes the electrification applied sciences utilized to nonpropulsion so much, resembling energy guidance and air-conditioning systems
  • Discusses hybrid battery/ultra-capacitor strength garage structures, in addition to 48-V electrification and belt-driven starter generator systems
  • Considers vehicle-to-grid (V2G) interface and electric infrastructure concerns, strength administration, and optimization in complex electrical force vehicles
  • Contains quite a few illustrations, sensible examples, case experiences, and difficult questions all through to make sure a superb figuring out of key thoughts and applications

Advanced electrical force cars makes a great textbook for senior-level undergraduate or graduate engineering classes and a easy reference for researchers, engineers, managers, and different pros attracted to transportation electrification.

Handbook of Automotive Power Electronics and Motor Drives by Ali Emadi

By Ali Emadi

At the start, the one electrical so much encountered in an vehicle have been for lights and the starter motor. this day, calls for on functionality, safeguard, emissions, convenience, comfort, leisure, and communications have visible the working-in of possible innumerable complex digital units. as a result, car electrical structures require greater capacities and extra complicated configurations to accommodate those calls for. masking functions in traditional, hybrid-electric, and electrical autos, the guide of automobile strength Electronics and Motor Drives presents a accomplished reference for car electric structures. This authoritative guide positive factors contributions from an excellent foreign panel of specialists from and academia, highlighting current and rising applied sciences. Divided into 5 components, the instruction manual of car strength Electronics and Motor Drives bargains an outline of automobile strength platforms, discusses semiconductor units, sensors, and different parts, explains diversified energy digital converters, examines electrical machines and linked drives, and info a number of complicated electric lots in addition to battery expertise for motor vehicle functions. As we search to respond to the decision for more secure, extra effective, and lower-emission autos from regulators and buyer insistence on greater functionality, convenience, and leisure, the applied sciences defined during this publication are very important for engineering complex autos that might fulfill those standards.

Automobilergonomie by Heiner Bubb, Klaus Bengler, Rainer E. Grünen, Mark Vollrath

By Heiner Bubb, Klaus Bengler, Rainer E. Grünen, Mark Vollrath

Ergonomie lehrt, wie Technik so zu gestalten ist, dass sie optimum an die Bedürfnisse, Wünsche und Eigenschaften des Nutzers angepasst ist. Es hat sich in diesem Zusammenhang der Begriff vom Mensch-Maschine-System etabliert. Sachsystematisch und mit detailliertem Blick auf die komplizierten technischen und wahrnehmungspsychologischen und methodischen Zusammenhänge werden in diesem Buch die Grundlagen mit zahlreichen Beispielen erklärt. Dabei zeigt sich die Anwendung der Fahrzeugergonomie in den Beispielen wie package deal, Gestaltung von Anzeigen und Bedienelementen, von Umweltergonomie wie Beleuchtung, Schall, Schwingungen, Klima und Geruch. Auch die Gestaltung von Fahrerassistenzsystemen aus ergonomischer Sicht ist ein zentrales Thema. Abgerundet wird das Buch durch Methoden der ergonomischen Fahrzeugentwicklung, die Nutzung von Mock-Ups, Fahrsimulatoren und von Versuchen in Realfahrzeugen und Prototypen. Erstmals wird den Verantwortlichen in der Automobilindustrie und im Bereich der einschlägigen Forschung ein fachsystematisches Werk an die Hand gegeben, das die ergonomischen Erkenntnisse bei der Gestaltung heutiger motor vehicle bereitstellt. Damit erhalten Planer und Konstrukteur heutiger motor vehicle konkrete Angaben für die ergonomische Produktentwicklung und können so entscheidende Anforderungen und die spätere Kundenakzeptanz im Blick behalten.
