High-voltage, high-current energy storage systems and electrical circuits in many current and future alternative- propulsion powertrains present unique challenges to the automotive industry. Care must be taken to minimize risk to all who come into contact with the vehicle throughout its development and life cycle, including powertrain developers, assembly line workers, service technicians, vehicle occupants, and first responders. Significant risk to life and limb can arise from technical issues surrounding these vehicles.

This e-seminar provides an introduction to the fundamental concepts and evolution of passenger car and light truck 4x4/all- wheel drive (AWD) systems including the nomenclature used to describe these systems. Basic power transfer unit and transfer case design parameters, component application to system function, the future of AWD systems, and emerging technologies that may enable future systems are covered. Based on the popular classroom seminar, the four and a half hour course is divided into eight modules accompanied by a handbook.

Hybrids, and to a lesser extent, electric vehicles, have been on the road since 1997. Although just two hybrids were on the market in 2001, there are more than a dozen today, and the market is ramping up quickly, driven by fuel prices and constraints, environmental regulations, and customer demand. The commercial vehicle market is also rapidly embracing hybrid technology. This two-hour webi seminar will highlight the passenger, light-duty, and heavy-duty hybrid and electric vehicles that are currently in production, offered for sale, or planned for near-term production.

Vehicle functional requirements, diesel emission regulations, and subsystem thermal limits all have a direct impact on the design of a powertrain cooling airflow system. Severe duty cycles, minimal ram air, fouling, and sometimes unconventional package layouts present unique challenges to the designer. This course introduces many airflow integration issues and vehicle-level trade-offs that effect system performance and drive the design. The goal of this course is to introduce engineers and managers to the basic principles of diesel cooling airflow systems for commercial and off-road vehicles.

Although hybrid powertrains have been on the market for little more than a decade, hybridization has quickly become one of the most successful alternative powertrains available today. Some OEMs estimate that up to 80% of their light-duty vehicles will require some level of hybridization to meet upcoming CAFE regulations in the United States. Additional market drivers, such as California's greenhouse gas legislation (now adopted or in process in 20 US states and two Canadian provinces) and a possible global agreement on greenhouse gas production at the end of 2009 may help to accelerate the process.

Electric drives are found in hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, as well as battery electric vehicles. More than two million hybrid vehicles worldwide utilize electric drive components, and battery technology has matured enough to enable major manufacturers to develop light-duty and commercial electric vehicles for mass production and sale beginning in 2010-2012. It is also likely that many conventional vehicles will incorporate some form of idle-stop or stop-start system comprised of a low-output electric drive, as an integral part of efforts to meet U.S. CAFE fuel economy standards and EU CO2 emission requirements.

This e-Seminar presents an introduction to vehicle dynamics from a vehicle system perspective. The theory and applications are associated with the interaction and performance balance between the powertrain, brakes, steering, suspensions and wheel and tire vehicle subsystems. The role that vehicle dynamics can and should play in effective automotive chassis development and the information and technology flow from vehicle system to subsystem to piece- part is integrated into the presentation. Dr. Richard Lundstrom develops and solves governing equations of motion for both steady and transient conditions.
