INTRODUCTION AND IMPROVEMENT OF EV AND HEVs COURSES IN ENGINEERING COURSE
All of us are aware that in today’s world engine manufacturer and designers are striving for its maximum efficiency and minimum pollution. Environmental concerns are pushing electrical vehicles for the development facilities everywhere. An ‘electric’ revolution is coming to automobile sector in India.
EV and HEV concepts are soon to be introduce in engineering courses which will provide new opportunities for engineers
Now we are shifted from BS III to BS IV, till 2020 BS IV is going to be implemented, this also maximise scope for engine modification and after treatment system. Due to multiple benefits, electric and hybrid are the future vehicles.
Fast depletion of fossil fuel and dependence on middle east country for fuels is the biggest reason of implementing and introducing EV and HEVs among young students.
As most automobile companies are switching to electric and hybrid system but today the industry is facing a shortage of talented, aptly skilled engineer who are not able for the transition to electric drives
Colleges should provide advance knowledge and hand on in design, analysis, control calibration and operating characteristics of EV and HEVs
Their course should contain the current technology and the future technology.
By the course student are able to architect vehicle powered with electric, hybrid and efficient engine. They are able to compare analyse and design various hybrid and electric vehicles technologies. Design engine and analyse engine performance of various engine management system and also able to simulate the engine and hybrid vehicle.
Course should be designed such that the students are able to know the latest engine technology and look for future technology to meet the stringent emission norms.
