This course continues the study of the use and service of hybrid electronic generation, plug-in battery-electric power, and fuel cell power generation for vehicles. Topics will include OSHA/NEC/NFPA high voltage safety specifically for the service technician. Dynamics of high voltage battery energy, hybrid generation systems, electric vehicle applications and their integrated systems from many manufacturers will be discussed. Battery storage systems for home charging usage as they apply to the home charging of a plug-in vehicle will also be addressed. High-voltage battery management systems including active/passive designs that control charging system safe operation, diagnosing with proper test tools and equipment, will be the primary focus of this course. This course is for students working in the hybrid/electric vehicle energy, fuel cell power engineering and technology fields..
