This course provides insight into automotive differential technologies including the intended function, issues with the common differential types (i.e. open differential), the concept of traction aiding differentials, and the difference between passive mechanical and active electronic. The course concludes with an overview of the design requirements and common manufacturing nuances specific to differential gears. <Should this be added to the end of the topical outline? E.g., Design requirements and manufacturing considerations for differential gears>
By completing this course, you will be able to identify, recognize or articulate the:
Who Should Attend
The intended audience for this course is powertrain and gear engineers who have not been previously exposed to the concept of differentials, differential gearing and / or automotive powertrain control and power distribution.
Because this course is targeted at several design and engineering disciplines, learners should have a B.S. in engineering or related field and preferably a minimum of two years design experience in automotive powertrain.
