Doctoral students at PhD course
The PhD course “System Development of Hybrid Vehicles” received very good reviews by the participants. The course is aimed at both students and people in the industry working with relevant parts of the driveline design.

Good reviews for SHC’s PhD course

Friday, November 28, 2014

The PhD course “System Development of Hybrid Vehicles” that was given by SHC this the autumn for the second time, received very good reviews by the participants. The assessment of the course as a whole gave the whole 4,875 points out of a possible 5 in the course evaluation.

-It is a very good result, says Anders Grauers, Chalmers, who leads the course. There were also good ideas for improvements that can be included next time.

Where did this year’s participants come from?
-They came from KTH, Lund, Chalmers, Volvo Global Trucks Technology and Volvo Construction Equipment.

When will the course be given again?
-It’s not decided yet, but in one and half to two years is likely. Please register interest in attending the course to SHC!

What improvements do you plan for the next time?
I will try to develop a case study of a real vehicle to be discussed during the lectures and another video lecture, about simulation.

The goal of the course “System Development of Hybrid Vehicles” is to provide an understanding of hybrid powertrains from a holistic perspective. The participants work in groups to dimension a driveline for different vehicle types, in order to understand how the dimensioning is influenced by different requirements. The course is aimed at both students and people in the industry working with relevant parts of the driveline design.
