Emphasis is placed on electrical fundamentals, symbols and circuit diagrams, high-voltage energy storage and range calculations, charging systems/on and off vehicle, heat pump for cooling and heating, motor and generators, magnetism, induction, and LED lighting systems. Students learn the proper use of high voltage electrical diagnostic tools and equipment, automated driver alert systems, camera, and radar communication with vehicle safety systems, and how to safely perform vehicle electrical service and maintenance operations. Students also have the opportunity to perform minor repair work on hybrid and high voltage vehicles to complete required tasks. This course is designed to be a companion course to AUTO 131, a prerequisite course for AUTO 147 and AUTO 148. Students are encouraged to complete both AUTO 131 and AUTO 132 to obtain a firm foundation on the subject of electronics and electric vehicles.
