Design and implementation process for controls integration using CAN bus on a full function electric vehicle conversion
From the electrical engineering perspective, this thesis addresses the design and implementation of the conversion process from a hybrid electric to a full function electric vehicle (FFEV). The architecture selection process ...
Development and experimental analysis of a novel hybrid cooling concept for electric vehicle batteries
In this thesis, a novel hybrid cooling concept for electric batteries is developed and studied at both the cell-level and pack-level experiments. The concept is based on a simple air-cooling duct that utilizes enhanced ...
Well-to-wheel greenhouse gas emissions and energy use analysis of hypothetical fleet of electrified vehicles in Canada and the U.S.
The shift to strong hybrid and electrified vehicle architectures engenders controversy and brings about many unanswered questions. It is unclear whether developed markets will have the infrastructure in place to support ...
Powertrain technology and cost assessment of battery electric vehicles
This thesis takes EV from the late 90’s as a baseline, assess the capability of today’s EV technology, and establishes its near-term and long-term prospects. Simulations are performed to evaluate EVs with different ...
Second law analysis of a liquid cooled battery thermal management system for hybrid and electric vehicles
As hybrid and electric vehicles continue to evolve there is a need for better battery thermal management systems (BTMS), which maintain uniformity of operating temperature of the batteries in the vehicles. This thesis ...
Experimental and numerical quantification of EV and PHEV battery pack thermal isolation strategies
The objective of this thesis is to quantify the effects of passive thermal management achieved through augmenting thermal isolation incorporated into an electrified vehicle’s energy storage system by design. Temperature ...
