This course outlines automotive powertrain layout, configuration, major components and operational theory and function from the air inlet of the internal combustion engine to the contact patch of the drive tires. It is a high-level overview of all the major component including their function and integration into the powertrain driveline. It is intended as an introduction to automotive powertrain technology and driveline operation.
By completing this course, you will be able to identify, recognize or articulate:
Who Should Attend
The intended audience for this course is powertrain engineers, vehicle platform powertrain development specialists, people interested in vehicle dynamics, engineers involved in the application or design of engines, transmissions and driveline components, or other technical personnel who need to understand the operational theories and functional principles of modern vehicle driveline systems.
Because this course is targeted at several design and engineering disciplines, learners should have a B.S. in engineering or related field.
