PROGRAM DAYS & TIMING
EV System Engineering Training Program - Demo Session
Promoted by the Automobile industry through Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM), Automotive Component Manufacturers Association (ACMA) and Federation of Automobile Dealers Association (FADA) and Government of India represented by Department of Heavy Industry and National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC).
- How will be the online practicals conducted?
Ans:For practical session, each trainee will require a computer system with Excel and Scilab softwares installed in it. Trainees will have to share their computer screens for showing their simulation model and for the trainer to review and help resolved any issue with it. Trainees will build their own simulation model to have this hands-on experience.
- What is Electric Vehicle Systems Engineering?
Ans: It is the application of generic systems engineering principles to development, integration, and validation of electric vehicles. System engineering approach is well known for its robustness, customer focus, traceability, and ease of system optimization.
- How the simulation modeling help in Vehicle development?
Ans:Simulation models are a preferred development tool due to following reasons
- They can help incorporate customer expectations into the product as early as conceptualization
- They can help derive accurate sub-systems technical specifications from vehicle requirements
- They are useful for technology cost-to-benefit studies
- They are useful to do trade-offs by generating all possible scenarios for comparison
- They make design optimization very easy and robust
- They can be used to perform failure mode effect analysis on design as well as system
- They can also be used for sub-system and system validation in extreme operating conditions
- They can also simulate different driver behaviors and their impact on the system
- Do not know about Scilab, how can I manage to learn?
Ans: Scilab is a free alternative to MATLAB and can be downloaded by anyone from. If you have not used MATLAB before, there will be a dedicated 2-hour session on how to use Scilab during the training.
- Do I need to buy textbook?
Ans:It is not necessary to buy a textbook for this course and regular notes will be provided to the trainees. However, you are free to buy any book that you feel relevant to your interest or role and use it as a reference during the course. You may even quote from that book in the assignments.
- How the certification is valuable?
Ans:The certification by Automotive Skills Development Council (ASDC) is well recognized and valued across Indian automobile industry due to the following reasons
- ASDC is the automotive industry focused arm of National Skills Development Council (NSDC) which is a part of Skills India initiative by the Government
- ASDC works closely with bodies like Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM), Automotive Component Manufacturers Association (ACMA) and Federation of Automobile Dealers Association (FADA).
- How the learnings of this program are beneficial?
Ans:Application of generic systems engineering principles to development, integration and validation of electric vehicles is a necessity for both- OEMs and Suppliers. System engineering approach is well known for its robustness, customer focus, traceability, and ease of system optimization. Virtual simulation is a very vital tool for systems engineering as it provides good direction and data points for critical decision making early in the vehicle development program.
This course is focused on imparting systems engineering skills by applying through usage of virtual simulation tools.
- Which educational background is needed to attend this program?
Ans: Anyone professional or aspiring engineer who has completed at least 2 years of engineering degree program will find this course easy to learn.
However, others can also apply and take up this course by putting extra efforts. We would be happy to advice on a case to case basis if you wish to seek our counsel.
- Which tool will be needed to access the program sessions?
Ans:It is strongly recommended to have a desktop or a laptop for this course as it is heavy on hands-on modeling and simulations. Such modeling and simulation activities are not feasible on smartphones or even tablets.The course will require the usage of MS Excel and Scilab (a free alternative of MATLAB) for calculations and simulations, respectively. Without a proper computer system and these tools, it will be extremely challenging to qualify for certification.
